Neel Kashkari waves to the crowd at the 40th San Diego LGBT Pride Parade in Hillcrest July 19.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Pete Wilson and perhaps even George Deukmejian didn't really care if same-sex couples won the right to marry, not that they'd let their Republican base in on that before their first elections as California governors.

orlytaitzhappy.jpg
Orly Taitz, proving to be the holiday gift that keeps on giving, has now stuck her Russian-American nose into the Duck Dynasty controversy, firing off a letter to a Denver, Colorado, court demanding reversals of either the A&E cable network's sanctions against a series star or its own judge's ruling that a baker must bake wedding cakes for gay couples.

Um ... at least there is no mention of President Obama being a foreigner in this complaint.
