Yeah this is always so funny. And you ask a conservatard how the overturn of DADT has harmed us, and they just stammer. Idiots, not to be taken seriously.

It is, rather, a rejection of that political role.

I know this because I'm a spouse, and I've seen what is going on. Most of America will not know this for years. Watch and see.

The Wall Street Journal editorial page – a place where conservatives usually turn for intellectual capital – saw this as cause for celebration.

According to the Journal, marriage definition should come from voters, not from court orders. Americans, they argue, have “shown themselves more than capable of changing their views on gay marriage the democratic way.”

In other words, our definition of marriage should follow process, not...
