Hawaii's GOP Governor Vetoes Civil Unions Bill; Was Anyone Actually Surprised?

I hate to sound cynical, but did supporters of gay marriage/civil unions in Hawaii actually think that Gov. Lingle was going to sign into law the civil unions bill that the Hawaii legislature? She is a Republican (strike one). She does not see the distinction between secular and sacred marriage, and therefore conflates the two (strikes two and three). So her vetoing the legislation was an exercise in the obvious.

I am so not shocked.
