When Morons Write The Laws, Part II

See if you can spot the problem with Proposition 2, an amendment to the Texas Constitution that will be voted on on November 8. Here's the relevant portion:
Sec. 32. (a) Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.
(b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.
Hmmmmm. I wonder what legal status is the most identical to marriage? Could it be...marriage itself? Talk about a threat to traditional marriage. I thought Gerald Allen was the dumbest legislator around, but whoever drafted this piece of shit takes the cake. Democracies get the governments they deserve, so here's to you, Texas! Hope Prop 2 wins by a mile, and California chooses not to recognize any Texas marriages, since they're violations of your state constitution.

H/T The Volokh Conspiracy.
