With FSM as my witness, I opened this post with the intention of writing something, and then the dogs barked, I went outside, came back in, and had completely forgotten what I wanted to talk about.
I don’t know why, but this song seems, somehow, to be a perfect representation of the contents of Associate Justice Scalia’s withered consciousness today:
I’m not actually sure if John’s going to let me back on the blog after posting that, but what the hell.
Let’s consider this an invitation to come up with the best rage/blame/break-up songs you know.
Please take a couple of minutes and give your opinion… no matter what it is!!!!
Dr. Pam Lannutti ([email protected]) needs your help with her research. Would you please complete a brief anonymous survey about your reaction to the Supreme Court decision on the same-sex marriage case (DOMA case)? If you don’t know much about the case yet, that’s ok, there are details in the survey. Everyone 18 or older is eligible to participate.
To participate, please go to:
Thanks in advance.
Via Mr. Charles P. Pierce, official DoD statement from Secretary Hagel:
The Department of Defense welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision today on the Defense of Marriage Act. The department will immediately begin the process of implementing the Supreme Court’s decision in consultation with the Department of Justice and other executive branch agencies. The Department of Defense intends to make the same benefits available to all military spouses — regardless of sexual orientation — as soon as possible. That is now the law and it is the right thing to do…
Pierce adds, “It really matters that this Secretary Of Defense started out in the military as an infantry grunt. I truly believe that.”
What’s on the agenda for the evening, as we catch our breath between bouts?
Libertarians aren’t inherently right wing–why, here’s Rand Paul defending the right of gays to marry on the Glenn Beck show:
“I think this is the conundrum and gets back to what you were saying in the opening — whether or not churches should decide this. But it is difficult because if we have no laws on this people take it to one extension further. Does it have to be humans?
Just kidding, he was using the same argument Rick Santorum made, that if gays can marry, then we might as well have man on child or man on dog. He’s just another bigot like the rest of them.
Also, too: I was joking about “states rights” in the post about Prop 8, but DOMA was pure states rights, and the gap-toothed, pin-headed majority of Rand’s state still has every right to display their bigoted ignorance by voting to outlaw gay marriage even after 5 unelected judges in robes defied the will of God.
Can Brazil maintain its momentum or will Uruguay prevail?
Hey, equality is cool and everything, but we all know what drives this website- mocking wingnuts. So please feel free to post links to the tears of the American Taliban as they weep for our newly gayified nation.
