Senior Obama administration official suggests it’s “reasonable” to compare gay marriage with incest

Keep digging folks.

“Note that the standard for defending a statute, once enacted, is lower than whether, in our judgment, it is constitutional,” a senior administration official said. “It is whether there are arguments that can be made. The DOMA statute has been found constitutional by at least 6 courts and has never been struck down. Whatever we think, it would be pretty hard to say that there are not ‘reasonable arguments’ with that context.”
