DOMA may define marriage as being only between one man and one woman (at any one time, as implied in the case of serial marriages), but how does the FEC determine that couples it recognizes as married have a complete set of genitals between them? Should they not be required to submit to a verification examination?

Since defending marriage is a crucial issue, we need to make sure that married couples have been “verified complete” before being permitted to make contributions. I’m sure those large altruistic medical corporations like Humana would, for a modest fee and perhaps a government subsidy, be pleased to set up marriage completeness verification center (DOMA MCVC) programs to provide certification and documentation as appropriate.

While no self-respecting Republican would even consider accepting funding from married couples lacking necessary documentation of genital set completeness, we just can’t trust those rainbow-hugging Democrats to do the right thing. For al e know, they’ve been hiking the Appalachian Trail with partners of the same gender.

As much as we all hate big government, we hate the possibility of unworthies making contributions to politicians. The should be denied any access to political power, regardless of what it would cost the tax paying middle class. It’s no skin off out teeth.

I’m proposing setting up a program that would help real Americans catch any married couple that has managed to pass undetected as legitimate while in fact being gonadally incomplete. You know — lacking the purity of being only one man and one woman at any one time (actual milage may vary), or until death do them part, just as god intended and real Americans insist (thanks to DOMA).

Seriously, that nice granny may really be a tranny. Lindsey Graham could be Chaz Bono. Who would know?

That has to be the silliest thing I've read today.

Thanks for the laugh.

Exactly. The Supreme Court will uphold DOMA and the issue is dead.
