By definition, a California proposition is an amendment to the California Constitution (one of the largest and most complex constitutional documents anywhere in the world, and includes a right to fish :) ). I guess it's possible that the California courts could find somewhere where this proposition conflicts with some other part of the California constitution. That's about the only way the state courts could do anything about it.
One huge positive from the election. I knew the heads would be 'slpoding. Awesome.
I was reading a thread about it earlier (may have been that one) where they wanted to slam the shit out of blacks because they overwhelming voted against it but they were treading carefully.
Of course they blamed "repuke fundies that infiltrated black churches" as the reason blacks voted against it.
Once again, god forbid a black person could make up their own mind.
This year, too, there was a big blowup between Leah Daughtry (the Black 50-something female pastor who had a huge influence on the Democratic platform) and the gays in the Democratic party. Daughtry excluded gays completely from the platform (though she denied it) and she was responsible for the resignation of one of the big gay activists in the Democratic party.
There is more of this coming. Blacks are no friends to the gay community and an Obama presidency may not work to the advantage of the gay community at all. The only reasons the Dems want them around is because gays (especially gay men) have a lot of expendable income which they put into politics. Most black women don't have that kind of spare cash. So they use the gays' money to support laws that will help the blacks.
