    Cannot say I am all that surprised DOMA failed. Unless this is another epic screw up on a SC decision by the media.

    This is a tragic day for the morality of the United States.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Not surprising. It sets up the It Is Up To The States argument though MSNBC is full of crap trying to paint this as an Obama single-handed victory

    Glad to see that this was struck down

    Now let's see what happens with Prop 8.
