Theodore Olson's Road to Championing Same-Sex Marriage
Last month, at a Federalist Society lunch, Mr. Olson delivered his annual roundup of the Supreme Court term. He was greeted warmly, but there was palpable discomfort over the marriage case. Not a single person mentioned it to him, save for an oblique ribbing by David Bossie, whom Mr. Olson is representing in a case involving his scathing documentary about Hillary Rodham Clinton. After pecking Ms. Olson on the cheek, Mr. Bossie told her husband, “I’m not going to kiss you, even though apparently you wouldn’t mind.”
Oh, those funny conservatives at the Federalist Society. I'm so glad they can find time amidst our financial crises and wars and the meltdown of our social infrastructure to make a homophobic joke.
As for that kiss, Mr. Bossie, yes, any of us would mind. We would mind a great deal.
