1. on, we all know what they would say...

"It's not about the money; it's about offending Jeeeezus!!!"

How much money does it cost us every time an angry God sends us another hurricane? For we have offended him mightily by repealing DOMA and DADT.

Sarcasm emoticon not needed, I hope?

5. Boehner: The Weeping Cheeto

Someone posted that yesterday, and I thought it was an apt description: totally fried, full of air and artificial coloring...that's John Boehner!

9. A corporate law firm chimes in with further info

 

My first law job was with a corporate firm (representing the likes of Merrill Lynch but, hey, we also did some pro bono work, so leave me alone). The successor firm, Clifford Chance, still has me on the mailing list for updates on legal developments. Here's what today's email from Clifford, Chance has to say about the DOMA decision:

The June 26, 2013 decision of the US Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor, by invalidating Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act ("DOMA", among other things has the effect of changing the meaning of the term "spouse" in the definitions of "accredited investor" in Rule 501(a) of the SEC's Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "1933 Act" and "qualified purchaser" in Section 2(a)(51) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the "1940 Act". Effective immediately, an individual's "spouse" now includes anyone to whom the individual is married, including someone of the same sex. The resulting expansion of eligibility for accredited investor and qualified purchaser status will have a positive impact on capital formation by emerging growth companies and other issuers and will broaden the base of potential investors in private equity and hedge funds.

To view the full briefing in downloadable format, please click here. (emphasis added)


I'll bet a lot of Republicans in the party's pro-business wing are publicly condemning the decision, because they have to maintain good relations with the religious-nutjob wing, but are privately glad about it.
