House and Senate Dems want DOMA to go way of DODO

by Jeremy Hooper

United for marriage:

Congress is currently comprised of two hundred fifty-three Democrats and two Independents who caucus with the Dems (both of whom signed on to this), so this means that over forty Democrats did not lend their Hancocks to the cause. They will now form the "Unfashionably Late Caucus," preferring to join their party only after the setup (be it obtaining a keg or defeating unjust laws) and hard work (be it hanging streamers or defending the constitution) has already been done.
