I Can't Interrupt My Laser Focus On The Economy To Write My Signature
The stupidest part of Vermont Governor Jim Douglas vowing to veto a same-sex marriage law that both chambers of the legislature will soon pass is his justification:
"The urgency of our state's economic and budgetary challenges demands the full focus of every member and every committee of this Legislature."
Um, the legislature has already passed it, and the amount of time it would take Douglas to sign the bill is approximately 2.7 seconds. In fact, the Legislature would be entirely LESS focused on the economy if they are forced to schedule a session to override Douglas' veto (and they have the votes to do that).
Maybe Jim Douglas can't walk and chew gum at the same time, maybe that's the problem.
