Obama's New DOMA Brief

I can't say that I am pleased since this is, for all intents and purposes a do-over (even though the administration did not retract its prior, gratuitously insulting brief supporting the misnamed "Defense of Marriage Act." The president in this brief, at least acknowledges the harm which the law inflicted (and still inflicts on) gay Americans and it does not compare gay marriage to incest, polygamy, and pedophilia.

Perhaps the Justice Department's new liaison (why did it take this long?) can spare the department and the administration from any future embarrassment.
