If you had listened a little more closely to the argumentation beyond the standing issue, it would be clear why Schwarzenegger and Brown chose not to defend Prop 8. The lawyers for Protect Marriage struggled to present any comprehensible purpose for Prop 8. It appeared that most of the judges' questions were in fact rephrasing of the lawyer's awkward wording into something that was even remotely comprehensible. The only slightly appealing point was the fact that Judge Walker's decision was overturning "the will of the people." However, it was clear that Prop 8 itself was absurd legislation meant to appeal to fear, prejudice and ignorance.
