Editorial Of The Day

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board:
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen feels obligated to try to block Friday's federal court ruling overturning Wisconsin's constitutional ban on same-sex marriages, so he asked two federal courts to stay the decision. Instead, Wisconsin authorities should follow the lead of Pennsylvania, where a Republican governor last month said he would not appeal a similar ruling in that state. Gov. Tom Corbett had wanted to fight the ruling but then decided that he likely would lose an appeal. Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, already had declined to appeal the ruling, saying the state's ban was unconstitutional. Van Hollen and Gov. Scott Walker should realize how rapidly the sand has shifted under their feet on this issue. In fact, the debate is nearly over, and their side is losing it.
