Kenneth Starr, the right wing witch hunter who attempted to end the Clinton presidency over a silly oral sex indiscretion by the once president is back on the stage again with yet another Puritanical mission to rid the world of any hanky panky. This time Kenneth Starr has signed on to act as the lead lawyer for the "Yes On Proposition 8" forces when this ballot measure is debated by the California State Supreme Court over whether this ballot measure is indeed constitutional or not. But California's Attorney General, Jerry Brown, has his doubts about the validity of the measure, and may well up up arguing that the measure is unconstitutional in testimony in front of the California's highest court.
Normally, a state attorney general will go to court to defend the interest of the state in matters, however, the legal opinion of Attorney General Brown has recently found new reason to doubt the legal validity of the measure, while Kenneth Starr who is now the Dean of Pepperdine Law School is following his typical path of defending Puritanical sexual values.
Certainly Kenneth Starr will wrap up all of his Puritanicalism in some eloquent language of legalese to defend his very conservative views. But the bottom line is that it's still the same old guy who is out on mission to put anyone into the stocks that offends his uptight sense of sexual values.
Somewhere out there, Kenneth Starr isn't having sex. And he'll be damned if he can't prevent someone else out there from not having sex as well. Kenneth Starr's advocacy for Proposition 8 is simply more of his moral crusade masquerading as law. But whatever compels those like a Kenneth Starr to be so obsessed with what others are doing with their romantic lives behind their own closed doors continues to amaze me. I suppose the Kenneth Stars of America lost the power to put homosexuals in prison on sodomy charges, so now they're down to attempting to control their romance lives and ability to marry. But it was indeed very disappointing that a state like California signed on to such foolishness when it very narrowly passed Proposition 8.
