BREAKING: San Francisco Circumcision Ban Cut from Ballot

Today is a sad day for San Francisco's busybodies and Nazi sympathizers: the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Superior Court Judge Loretta Giorgi has ruled that the city's proposed ban on male circumcision must be withdrawn from the November ballot. In her tentative ruling, the judge ruled that the California Business and Professions Code prohibits local regulation of medical procedures, thus making the measure "expressly pre-empted" by state law. As such, there's no point in having an illegal measure on the ballot.

The city will hold a public hearing on the matter on Thursday, but observers say Judge Giorgi is unlikely to change her mind. City residents hoping that local politics wouldn't take such a poisonous and anti-Semitic turn are doubtless relieved, and Matthew Hess will have to find another venue for his hateful Foreskin Man comic. And to all the insane people who briefly filled our blog with vile comments on the posts we wrote on this subject, we hope you enjoy these apples, and that you crawl back into your f***ing holes now.
