More strange bedfellows

Robert Levy of the Cato Institute signs on to co-chair the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the organization behind Perry vs. Schwarzenegger.

The Cato Institute. The Cato Institute. An ultra-conservative think tank stepping up to support the cause of same-sex marriage. This particular organization identifies as libertarian, so this isn't shocking on the level of, say, the Heritage Foundation or Focus on the Family getting involved on this side of the issue. (Or Ted Olsen. Oh, wait...) But other libertarian organizations haven't gotten involved en masse, and it really shows how the usual alliances have broken down in the face of the future.

In other news, gays marry in Iowa, Iowans shrug and move on to other things.

Hat tip to Shakesville for the links.
