Tammy Baldwin’s Barely Believable Argument Obama’s Memo Did Anything Meaningful

You almost have to laugh at Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin. Bless her heart, but was she delivering punchlines on Rachel Maddow last night? She calls President Obama’s federal employee benefits memorandum “very meaningful,” and then says it establishes “certain rights in certain instances in certain agencies.” Wow, that sounds, uh, uncertain — just like Baldwin’s faith that a repeal of DOMA is in the cards.

Meanwhile, Baldwin will be attending next week’s DNC gay fundraiser, so she can “convey the sense of urgency … and impatience” on gay rights to her fellow Dems. Also, there will be a fabulous cheese spread.
