Signs of the apocalypse

Bob Barr, one of the chief architects of the infamous Defense of Marriage Act, has admitted he was wrong to promote it. He's also saying publicly that Obama was right:

In 2006, when then-Sen. Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment, he said, “Decisions about marriage should be left to the states.” He was right then; and as I have come to realize, he is right now in concluding that DOMA has to go.


So why don't politicians ever have these brilliant flashes of insight while they're still in office?

    It goes to show that if you ask the right questions, every so often, right-wingers will actually think for themselves.
