Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:

The people of Massachusetts are having a Deval of a time on marriage. Governor Deval Patrick, to be exact. Since taking office, Patricks been a big supporter of gay rightsbut not everyone in the state shares his enthusiasm. When the court ruled to legalize same-sex marriage, voters started a massive petition drive to put the issue back where it belongsin the hands of the people. Last week, Patrick said, Rather than turn Massachusetts into a political circus... we [should] resolve this... so that it stays off the ballot. Lets face it. Massachusetts is already a circusand as the liberal ring leader, Patrick has no one to blame but himself. Hes been busy juggling the demands of homosexuals when he should have been taming the left-wing lions. The truth is, Patrick doesnt want to put the issue on the ballot because he has a pretty good idea of what the outcome will be. In every state but one, Americans have voted to preserve traditional marriage. Instead of walking a tightrope to please gay activists, the governor should support the democratic process. Join us in asking Patrick to stop clowning around and give voters a voice.
