I’m thoroughly perplexed about what to make of this. Kip’s comment on the post above does give me pause tho’.
Huh? Making a mistake is better than doing nothing in the first place? In the context of DOMA and the Patriot Act? Is he serious?
“Libertarian” my a*s.
And for the record, I know of no instance — none whatsoever, where DOMA has been “misused.” It has been and will continue to be used exactly the way it was intended — to discriminate against gays.
I repeat: “Libertarian” my a*s.
I can’t speak to Barr’s libertarian credentials. But Kip’s comment leads me to ask if Barr was (a) sincerely opposed to same-sex marriage then, (b) sincerely sorry for authoring DOMA now, or (c) just being a political opportunist then and now.
I think I know the answer already.
