Well, there's finally some good news for Republicans in Congress.

The NJ Supremes stopped short of saying that gay marriage was allowed. They ruled that gay couples were entitled to the same rights and benefits that opposite-sex married couples have and that it was up to the NJ legislature to decide how to bring that about; it could simply allow 'civil unions' but not marriage.

But, yeah, the Republicans will make of this all they can.
