California's Prop 8: Ken Star says "Nullify," Jerry Brown says "No."

Attorney General Jerry Brown
Take Prosecutor Ken Starr down
I swear I'll never make fun of you again

Yes, you read that right. Ken Starr's come back into service, again: the backers of Proposition 8 want the state to nullify the marriages that happened before Prop 8 passed, and they've got Mr. Starr on their side

"Proposition 8's brevity is matched by its clarity. There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions or exclusions," reads the brief co-written by Kenneth Starr, dean of Pepperdine University's law school and the former independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton. ... The measure's backers announced Friday that Starr, a former federal judge and U.S. solicitor general, had signed on as their lead counsel and would argue the cases.

State A.G. Jerry Brown (yes, read that again) is saying that no, it doesn't nullify them, and is going to fight it.

Of course, this means war. Where are the "zen fascists" when you need them to kick some ass?
