Why did it come to this?

I doubt we will ever know the truth about Dean Johnson's discussions or lack thereof about DOMA with judges. I just don't know what he was thinking when he started down this path in the first place. There was no need to bring judges into the mix when discussing why the "I hate teh gay" amendment isn't necessary. Simply saying that there are no court challenges (true) and that we have no idea how judges would rule (also true) are plenty good enough reasons for why we don't need this right now, if Johnson isn't willing to flat-out say we don't need it ever.

The only time most of us hear what politicians say is through the media, which can factcheck.

We might be surprised at how far politicians are willing to embellish when (they think) they're in small groups and no one else is listening.

In any case, Johnson kind of reminds me of this Simpsons line: "Stupid...like a fox!" Maybe that's a little harsh, but he always seems to be unintentionally doing stuff that ends up benefiting the DFL. I can't tell whether he's just really dumb/lucky, or extremely sly.
