DOMA gets 7/20 for hearing; certainly not 20/20 for vision

by Jeremy Hooper

We have a date for a DOMA hearing, as well as some new supporters for that flawed law's inevitable repeal:

Sen. Judiciary hearing on DOMA set for July 20th; Sens. Bingaman and Sanders to co-sponsor Respect for Marriage Act [Prop 8 Trial Tracker]

The hearing will work under the title, "S.598, The Respect for Marriage Act: Assessing the Impact of DOMA on American Families.” The second choice, as "15 years of unfairly burdening certain marriages with a self-absorbed sense of entitlement" is already the subtitle for MTV's upcoming reality show tracking spoiled teens who demand extravagant Quinceañeras.
