Gobbledygook du Jour

From Randy Thomasson, who apparently still thinks people are listening to him:

Each governor is authorized to call out his/her state's militia or National Guard to enforce written laws and maintain public order against foreign and domestic enemies. In view of the current crisis on marriage, a constitutional governor can and should do the following: Announce he took an oath to obey the constitution, not to obey a judge’s unconstitutional opinion. Announce that no homosexual 'marriage' licenses will be issued, and no county clerk is permitted to issue marriage licenses to anyone other than a qualified man and woman. Utilize the support of the state attorney general (if that constitutional officer is willing to stand alongside) or use the state’s National Guard to enforce the law at county clerk’s offices.

"Crisis on marriage"? What crisis? Marriage seems to be doing as well as can be expected, considering the way heterosexuals treat it.

". . . took an oath to obey the constitution. . . ." Well, if they comply with the court decisions, that's what they're doing. Or did you forget that the federal Constitution supersedes all the others?

". . . not to obey a judge's unconstitutional opinion." Huh? This is another one of those right-wing catch-phrases that means exactly nothing.

". . . use the state's National Guard to enforce the law at county clerk's offices." Somehow, I don't think Thomasson is envisioning an honor guard for same-sex couples applying for marriage licenses, which is what would happen if they were, in fact, enforcing the law.

That was way too easy. Something tells me someone hasn't been getting enough attention lately.

I guess word salad became fashionable on the right around 2008?
