A look back at today's top stories
As the dust settles on the week that was marriage equality week at the Supreme Court, Ari Waldman gives us a list of seven things to takeaway from those two historic days. The Supreme Court has not ruled on either case yet, but Time magazine is already calling the race in favor of marriage equality, with a stunning cover to boot. MSNBC's Thomas Roberts took a moment on the steps of the court to talk about the personal connection he feels toward the importance of these cases.
This week has seen a rash of politicians jumping on board the marriage equality bandwagon and Jon Stewart takes a look at the most boring Pride float ever. It's been a rough week for Heritage Foundation "scholar" Ryan Anderson who after having CNN's Don Lemon tear him a new one, used his lunacy to run afoul of Suze Orman. We all need to give Stephen Colbert a moment to process the notion that someone with the high level of intellect of Bill O'Reilly could possibly support gay marriage. And Jimmy Kimmel discovers if you can tell if someone is anti-gay marriage just by looking at them.
Conservative blowhard Rush Limbaugh still doesn't like gay marriage but says that right-wingers have lost the battle. Limbaugh also took great offense to fellow conservative host Bill O'Reilly's statement that anti-gay marriage groups are just "thumping their Bibles" and Lawrence O'Donnell is already relishing in a potential evil vs. evil battle.
A group of Republicans in Michigan are calling for the resignation of a local RNC official after he made homophobic remarks on his Facebook. And in Arizona a House committee has approved a bill that would allow businesses to ban transgender people from using their restrooms. Luckily not every place in America has that problem.

Rachel Maddow took some time on her show last night to break down the arguments in the Supreme Court DOMA case and to laugh about the phrase "skim milk marriage", of course.
