Liberals: Thank Conservatives For Gay Marriage Rulings

Isn't it interesting that a Republican-appointed Supreme Court Justice once again provided the key vote to bring about a decision favored by Democrats?
This happened on both of the key decisions today.
In fact, Justices Kennedy, Scalia and Chief Justice Roberts joined their liberal colleagues to make these decisions possible.
This is not the first time that one of more conservative justices have joined liberal colleagues to provide a majority vote.
At the same time, the four liberal justices almost never break ranks -- especially on "social" issues like the one handed down today. As has almost always been the case, liberals tow the line. Conservatives keep an open mind. That should tell you everything you need to know.
BTW: The 1964 Voting Rights Act (that everyone is now carrying on about) would never have become law without the votes of Republicans in Congress.
Liberals fall into line. Conservatives fall out of favor from time to time but they follow the law, common sense and their conscience.
