DOMA Struck Down: How Local Celebrities and Politicians Reacted on Twitter

Categories: The Lists

In an historical ruling today, the Supreme Court of the United States has struck down DOMA, making marriages for all couples -- gay or straight -- a constitutionally protected right.

SCOTUS also handed out equal rights to all like Oprah giving away cars to her studio audience by also striking down Proposition 8, making gay marriage officially legal in California.

You get to marry! YOU get to marry! YOU get to marry!

It's not surprise, then, that folks took to Twitter to express their reactions to the news.

Here are several tweets from local celebrities and politicians on the big day:

The SC tossed our society a bone. It's about time.Good edecision, but.......

"Dissenting were Justices John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas." Any surprise here?
