Quote of the day

By Mustang Bobby

Bill Clinton on the Defense of Marriage Act, which he signed into law:
When I signed the bill, I included a statement with the admonition that “enactment of this legislation should not, despite the fierce and at times divisive rhetoric surrounding it, be understood to provide an excuse for discrimination.” Reading those words today, I know now that, even worse than providing an excuse for discrimination, the law is itself discriminatory. It should be overturned.

BTYFO*, Mr. President. Nevertheless, welcome to the fight.

*’Bout Time You Found Out.
