View Diary: Have Dems sold out too early on immigration? Not if they want something to actually pass (317 comments)

    For someone who claims to be a political realist, this is a piss poor argument:

    Pass this bill, then eliminate DOMA, and then same-sex couples are covered.
    You know perfectly well that DOMA repeal isn't going to pass on its own.  The only way we might be able to get rid of it would be to attach it to a must-pass bill like this one.  Yet we can't even get the narrow issue of immigration equality for gay people in an immigration bill.

    So what you're offering as a strategy is no strategy at all.  It's just telling gay people to wait -- again.
