    When I see this crap from the right wing, I think immediately of my kids' friends' families where the parents are gay couples (3 of them that I am aware of); I think of their favorite teacher who just had a baby with her partner; I think of all my gay friends in real life, and my gay friends in cyberspace, and my kids' gay friends who are about to start their adult lives
    and all I can think is why in the hell would Boner and his buddies want to hurt these  people?  These are fellow humans I know and love, and for each of them, there are hundreds of thousands more that I don't know who will be hurt by Boner's shitty actions.  Who are they to declare their families not families with the same rights as my family and me and my children?  What motivates someone like Boner to want to make people's lives more difficult?  In short, it disgusts me.  These aren't just LGBT rights; these are human rights.

    (OK, I'll quit ranting now :) )

      John Boehner doesn't care one way or the other about defending DOMA, whether or not same-sex partners can marry or anything even remotely concerned with this or any other issue.

      Boehner is a shallow, self serving, life time politician who sold his soul a very long time ago.

      Being promoted to Speaker is one of those "be careful what you wish for" moments for him and for the rest of us, a reminder of the wisdom of the Peter Principle.
