Kuffner puts things into perspective nicely today:

…I have a few words to say about the attempt by the Republicans in Congress to force DOMA-related lawsuits out of the federal courts. I just can’t decide if I find this sort of behavior outrageous or pitiable. I mean, for crying out loud, we’ve just had the 9/11 Commission’s report which baldly stated that “we are not safe”, we’ve got the Army dragging 67-year-olds back into service because they don’t have any better non-draft options for manpower in Iraq (one wonders when someone will consider doing something about this), we’ve still got a crappy economy and huge structural budget deficits, and this is what the GOP leadership thinks is important? How unserious can you get?
