Beggars Will Be Choosers: 69 Democrats Plead With Obama Over DADT. 10 States Plead With 9th Circuit Over Prop 8

Sixty-nine Democratic congressmen and women sent a letter to President Obama advising him not to appeal the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell ruling in Log Cabin Republican v. United States, the best part of which is seeing all those lawmaker’s John Hancocks scrawled on a single document. And because ’tis the season for group think, in unrelated news Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming on Friday all signed an amicus brief sent to the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals asking for Judge Vaughn Walker’s Prop 8 ruling to be struck down because states have the last word on same-sex marriage, not the Constitution.
