    Good job Matt, like very much the way you put these clips together to play one after another. Release the tapes already! (and give them to Matt to consolidate)…

    And this is why releasing the tapes would destroy the anti-equality movement!

    Oh sure, Newt. Sure.

    In hs letter he promises to "uphold … respect for the marital bonds of others", and in the very next sentence, "vigorously enforce the Defense of Marriage Act</>".

    You can't do both at once! How about you support the Respect for Marriage Act, then? I guess he's saying he won't mess up any straight marriages (anymore), but he's perfectly fine with demeaning and undermining all the SS marriages that he possibly can. I can't wait to see him debate Obama on this point, if only it would come to that.

    Oops, I think I screwed up the italics again. I hope this new site is more forgiving than the old one.

    This demonstrates to me how great it would be to have the tapes released. I had read written reports of all these excerpts, but actually hearing that nitwit say out loud and in court that same-sex marriage would not harm any individual marriage is so much more effective than just reading it.
    Is it possible they could release the tapes with the "fearful" witnesses edited out?

    It is except when it isn't. Is what we're saying.

    Judge Walker ruling was written in such a sound way that I don't think that it will be able to be overturned. He cited very specific areas of the Constitution in his very detailed ruling. I dont see it being possible to overturn his ruling.
