Breaking: Supreme Court Will Grant Hearing to Prop 8 and DOMA

The Supreme Court finally stopped cock-teasing us and announced that it will grant hearing of both the Prop 8 and DOMA cases. While Prop 8 really didn't need a hearing (and hate groups are jumping gleefully, pointing this out and claiming it's a sign that SCOTUS will overturn the 9th Circuit's decision), I am definitely excited about DOMA, since they have picked the Windsor case - the one with high scrutiny that has a higher chance of being upheld by the Supreme Court. Personally, I am optimistic, and after ten consecutive courts declared that abomination as unconstitutional, I'm having a hard time imagining SCOTUS deciding otherwise, even with all the conservative doom and gloom that presides over it.
