Newt outraged at Iowa, more measured on Vermont

Stop the presses on "Gingrich explodes at gay marriage", because his message to University of Georgia law students today was considerably more procedural than moral.

He even ascribed a bit of health to Vermont's decision to allow gay marriage, but only because the Legislature and not the court had its way.


"The people of Vermont have every right to elect the legislators they want and if they disagree with this decision they have every right to replace them and so it is the people's branch overriding the governor, who's elected, and it's not an isolated imposition by the elite."

Even for people who don't agree with the outcome, it's a much better process."
