It looks like the still-steaming House Republicans are already thinking of ways for the Supreme Court to redeem themselves in the eyes of movement conservatism. What better way than to get into another high-profile spat between themselves and the administration?
The Republican-led House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group today mailed its petition to the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to review the May 31 ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit that the federal definition of marriage contained in the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.
The First Circuit arguments against the act can be found here. John Boehner and the other House Republicans have been persistent in their attempts to help steer this through the courts, presumably because they’re focused on all the jobs to be created in passing prejudicial laws against gay people. Because they’re focused on jobs, right?
