Deval Patrick's Big Love

For months now, reporters have been grilling Gov. Mitt Romney (R.- Moroni) over his position on polygamy. Romney--no surprise--opposes legalizing polygamous marriage.

Here's the real question: When is someone going to quiz Gov.-elect Patrick on his position re: Big Love?

Actually, there's no need to. Deval Patrick announced his position today:

"I believe adults should be free to choose whom they wish to love and to marry....it's a basic human right, and I support it."

There. That was easy.

So adults (including close family members, entire swim teams and those with an affection for the deceased), Deval Patrick says "Have at it!" He'll happily issue an official Massachusetts marriage license recognizing all of your various husbands and wives in the eyes of the citizens of Massachusetts.

Whether the citizens like it or not.
