Ah, the fertile mind of Del. Marshall, on the unborn and gay marriage

According to this report in the Roanoke paper, two of the bright ideas of Delegate Robert Marshall have been rejected this session, one being a ban on executing pregnant woman, and the other a statutory provision for the impeachment of judges who recognize gay marriage, in the manner of the Massachusetts appeals court judges.

Both of these proposes seem pretty far over the top to me, and the latter is probably just plain unconstitutional. Are there no constitutional guarantees of judicial independence in the Virginia Constitution? Maybe not.
