Here's the headline I would have written today - Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have announced their separation despite the passage of a marriage protection act in 2008…and after 25 years of marriage.
I'm more than a wee bit pissed that I listened to news stories about the split and didn’t hear anyone address the product failure angle.
And the choir said… “What the fuck are you talking about, Fu?”
And a bitch replied… “Oh c’mon, y’all! I’m talking about the fact that the California Marriage Protection Act failed to protect the Schwarzenegger Shriver marriage!!”
If I lived in California I’d sue the hell out of Prop 8 backers and voters for false advertising and fraud.
I suspected the product integrity of Prop 8 when celebrity couples kept getting divorced after the measure passed…but lots of those folks lived elsewhere and for all I knew the power of Prop 8 diminished with physical distance from it’s state of origin.
But the former Governor and Maria…a high profile California dreamin’ couple who were featured in ads for the state, all tanned up and whitened smiles?
25 years of marriage…25 fucking years…and the California Marriage Protection Act couldn’t force field shield them through some job transition shit or infidelity or whatever the fuck challenge arose to their man-on-woman sanctified foundation of American society thus deserved of protection lest the heavens fall and dawgs start talking trash marriage?
Well, I’d sue…damn it.
I sure would!
Either the California Marriage Protection Act malfunctioned…
…or the California Marriage Protection Act never functioned…
…or the gays getting married ain’t what man-on-woman sanctified foundation of American society thus deserved of protection lest the heavens fall and dawgs start talking trash married people need to fucking worry about.
Shit, just look at the divorce rate in California!
If Prop 8 were a minivan it would have been recalled 3 years ago and lawyers would still be smiling.
