Fascinating New York Times profile on Ted Olson, the lawyer who's challenging Prop 8 in the US courts.

He's the same bloke who got Bush into the Whitehouse, and advised the same dickwad on the extension of presidential power, and has a long history of opposing affirmative action.

But, while I disagree with most of them, it looks like he's actually a man of some principles - he's opposed to government discrimination on the basis of sexuality for the same reasons (as he sees it) he's opposed to affirmative action: all should be equal before the law.

It's a fascinating article - and on the upside, Olson has won 44 of the 55 Supreme Court cases he's argued, and is very influential in conservative legal circles.
