Schuette: Won’t somebody please think of the poor private schools?
You’ve got to hand it to Michigan’s Attorney General Bill Schuette: He’s consistent, if only in his inconsistency. . . . The cost of fighting to keep Michigan from recognizing gay marriage was monetarily steep: $1.9 million in plaintiffs’ legal fees, and almost a quarter of a million dollars to legal experts, conservative economists, and bogus “social scientists.” . . . Schuette is a longtime fervent defender of anti-gay legislation. . . . As if to prove that accusation true, Schuette hasn’t accepted the “will of the voters” on the issue, remaining a staunch advocate of marijuana prohibition. . . . So, you see, it doesn’t matter what the courts have rules, or the voters have decided, or even what the voters might decide right now — what matters most are the convictions inside the chief law enforcement official’s head. . . . Is it any better to be an attorney general who picks and chooses which laws to uphold and which to resist — as long as it’s done in the name of conservative ideology? (Detroit Metro Times)
