71. No, I don't believe a damn bit of her explanation. Now then,
what does that have to do with my problem with Obama and my concern he will change his mind and also only partially repeal DOMA if he needs to compromise about something else he thinks is important.

And why do I think he would do that? Because he proved he will do the wrong thing (McClurkin) in order to do something he thinks is more important.

You tell me how that's cynical or how that's a joke.

That's reality.
