    Former Solicitor General Paul Clement Signs Up to Defend Marriage Law

    That's right...the weepy orange Boehner has hired a $5 million dollar a year lawyer to defend the Unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act.

    Funny that he won't disclose how much he is paying Mr. Clement.

    So much for being fiscally responsible...or transparent.

    I wonder if they took the money from WIC or from heating subsidies for old people.

    cause, you know, it's all about priorities.

    That's what he usually makes. The Boehner won't disclose how much the House is paying him.

    $5 million is a small price to pay to keep gays from marrying.

    They can take the money from SCHIP, tell kids they can get their doctors back once the threat of gay marriage is gone

    These are the same fiscal conservatives who spent $70 million to find out if Clinton got a bj.

    "...from Boehner to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) makes clear that King & Spalding will charge at least some fee for the work."

    So how'd you make the leap from "at least some fee" to "Boehner Hires $5 Million Dollar Lawyer." Just conveniently fits your agenda? Wet dream?

    1. He is not hiring him, the House of Representatives is.
    2. The law may, or may not, be unconstituional. Obama declaring it so does not make it so.
    3. He is taking the money from the existing budget, so it is not going to cost you one penny more than it would if he had not hired him.
    4. He is not disclosing the cost because it has not been paid yet.
    5. Where did you pull the $5 million from?
