As the Supreme Court handed down it's 5-4 decison supporting marriage equality, the usual suspects began to weigh in with all sorts of fatuous arguments trying to undermine the court's decision. Fox News' Martha MacCallum asked Greta Van Susteren if it was A-OK for three people to get married together since the gays were granted the right to do so by the Supremes. Please, make it stop - my head hurts so frelling much.

“We’re just trying to think about the ramifications when a precedent is set what it means down the road, right?” MacCallum said. “So suppose three people say, ‘we want to be a marriage.’ We’re three people, and we love each other, and we want to be marriage. What’s to prevent that under this?”

Van Susteren replied, “I don’t know that there is. I mean, you know, that will have to wind up to the Supreme Court.”

Using the country’s “evolution” on the issue of the Confederate flag as an analogy, Van Susteren made the argument that things can change in unexpected ways. “I’m not saying we’re going to have what you hypothesized, but what the court does, it attempts to look at, case by case, whatever comes before it,” she added.

As Gawker says: The answer: No, you fool.

I'm waiting for Rick Santorum to bring a dog down to the courthouse to seek a marriage license for the new couple.
