I just love how Bill Clinton is hailing the striking down of a law HE SIGNED. #shortmemories—

Bill and Hillary Clinton issued a statement about Wednesday’s DOMA and Prop 8 rulings by the Supreme Court.
By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union. We are also encouraged that marriage equality may soon return to California. We applaud the hard work of the advocates who have fought so relentlessly for this day, and congratulate Edie Windsor on her historic victory.
Something like the fact that DOMA was declared unconstitutional after Clinton signed it into law? Yeah, something like that. As we suggested earlier today, Bubba was hardest hit by the DOMA ruling. Evidently he’s “evolved,” but not everyone is willing to recognize his shiny new gay-lo.
Today is not the day for Bill Clinton to call a "Great Step Forward." Bill Clinton was the reason today was necessary. Highly disingenuous.—

Clinton didn’t take this Twitter user’s advice:
Dear Bill Clinton, I love you Man, but say nothing about DOMA today unless it involves the words "stupid, wrong, never should have done it."—
