DOMA Will Be Overturned

Yesterday, conservative pundits and strategists alike proclaimed the anti-gay marriage sentiment in America is “quite literally…dying” and it’s just “common sense” to embrace same-sex marriage. Now, Maggie Gallagher has proclaimed that she believes DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 that bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, will be overturned by the Supreme Court.
“I think [Justice Anthony] Kennedy will overturn DOMA (perhaps joined by Roberts) and then uphold the right of states to refuse to accept gay marriage (i.e. uphold Prop 8),” she writes in response to a lazy David Blankenhorn blog post.
