"the right side of this battle, the right side of the law, and the right side of history"

I realize that part of the reason Ted Olson's argument in favour of gay marriage in the States has such a charge is because he's a conversative (worked in Reagan and Bush administrations, etc.). But I think his essay is worth reading not just as a rhetorical tool, a kind of anti-Lieberman example that seeks to show that one side is wrong regardless of partisan interests; above and beyond all that it's a clear, cogent, and forceful expression of just how stupid the fact that we're even still arguing about the issue in North America is.
