House and Senate Dems want DOMA to go way of DODO

by Jeremy Hooper

United for marriage:

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and 210 other Democratic members of Congress urged the Supreme Court Friday to strike down the federal definition of marriage contained in the Defense of Marriage Act.

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.
