Romney's gay anxiety

As far as social conservatives are concerned, one of Mitt Romney's big achievements has been keeping gay marriage confined to Massachusetts. So it's no wonder the Mittster--who, lest we forget, is unofficially running for president--is all atwitter about today's court ruling that Rhode Island gays and lesbians can tie the knot here.

In a statement released today, AG Tom Reilly says he doesn't plan to appeal the Superior Court decision. (Kudos, Tom.) But Mitt isn't giving up: in a hand-delivered letter, he urged Reilly to reconsider his decision, and, barring that, to appoint a "special assistant attorney general to handle the appeal." "I would be happy to provide you with several recommendations in that regard and to help in any way possible in the appeal," the governor wrote.

I bet you would, Mitt.
