  1. Given the Supreme Court said that the Federal Government can't interfere in the decisions of States with respect to lawfully married same-sex couples.. There is no 'next move'. Game over.

  2. Boehner must be ill. His complexion isn't that healthy orange today.

  3. Don't worry Johnny, a night at the bar and a good can of spray tan will make it all better.

    But I really WAS hoping he'd cry!

  6. I am sure Michelle Bachmann is working on one as we speak.

  7. The video would not play for me at all, even if I went directly to the site.

  8. The GOP can read the writing on the is their crazy-ass teabagger voting base that has them by the balls. They need a new voter base, because crazy and hateful, paranoid, middle-aged white, heterosexual (mostly male) Christofascists are not exactly a winning demographic going forward.

  9. There is not one honest bone in Boehner, the man is an act.

  10. The operative words here are "at this point"

  11. Poor MR Boehner has the thankless job of trying to lead the collection of wingnuts that now passes for the once respectable conservative Republican Party.

  12. OK, Pedro. That is the most clever, incisive post I've ever read on Towleroad. You are exactly right.

    Let's lift a glass together when Texas goes blue.

  13. I wonder if Boehner even realizes that the DOMA decision applies nationally ony because he kept appealing the case all the way to the Supreme Court. If he had not intervened the case would have been settled at a much lower level and have a much more limited scope.
