John "Snooki" Boehner Taking Heat From Both Sides Over DOMA Defense

It's not easy being orange.
Republican Speaker of the House John "Snooki" Boehner just cant get a break these days. Liberals have been harassing Congressman Spray Tan over his decision to take up the legal defense of DOMA. Taxpayers are on the hook to the tune of $1.5 million in legal fees payable to attorney Paul Clement, who quit his job with a prestigious law firm to take the case after they turned it down.

Meanwhile, right-wing fanatics, like the certified hate group Family Research Counsel, are complaining that the bronzer-addicted politico isn't pounding hard enough on our sinful gay asses. Congressional Quarterly reports:

While the Family Research Council and other conservative groups applaud Boehner’s unusual courtroom intervention, the council would like to hear more vocal support of the measure signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
“They hired Paul Clement, and they think their job is done. While the Obama administration ignores DOMA, Speaker Boehner has forgotten that the checks and balances also include Congress,” said Tom McClusky, senior vice president of the Family Research Council.
The council sees a challenge of the law’s definition of marriage as “a legal union between one man and one woman” as a threat to religious freedom — a potent political argument Republicans used to criticize the Obama administration’s recent requirement that health insurers, including those of religiously affiliated organizations, provide contraceptive coverage.
“I wish that our allies would do more. They are being intimidated into silence by Republican leaders,” McClusky said.
So, now it's the Republicans that are intimidating the Republicans? Sounds like a kinky case of political masturbation.

Well, what can we expect? When you're so blinded by your own hate, it's hard to see the world passing you by. What the myopic McClusky doesn't understand, that the rest of the GOP is beginning to, is that gay-bashing doesn't pay off politically they way it used to. Marriage Equality may still be a wedge issue, but groups like FRC and NOM are increasingly finding themselves alone on their side of the divide.
