After the Supreme Court overturned DOMA, Bill Clinton praised the decision. Naturally he didn’t mention that he was the president who signed it into law.

The list of other Dems who were for it before they were against it starts with Harry Reid:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act “a great, historic day for equality in America.”

He went on: “The idea that allowing two loving, committed people to marry would have a negative impact on anyone else, or on our nation as a whole, has always struck me as absurd.”

Pretty strong words from a guy who voted for the Defense of Marriage Act.

But Reid isn’t the only one. There was a long line of prominent Democrats Wednesday who all queued up to applaud the Supreme Court for striking down DOMA — even though they voted for it when it passed in 1996.

The list of Democrats who voted for DOMA who not surprisingly didn’t mention that fact when celebrating its demise includes Joe Biden, Steny Hoyer, Pat Leahy, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, Carl Levin and others.

Meanwhile, The New Yorker depicts Bert and Ernie’s “moment of joy.”
