irony watch

Most of you probably don't read towleroad or other LGBT blogs, but if you do, you'd have picked up on this little piece of ironic awesomeness--

With the House set to defend DOMA in the courts and assert the constitutionality of States and the Federal Government not recognizing marriages validated by the states, Speaker Boehner has hired an ex Bush appointee to do the legal work. His name is Paul Clement, and this is a page on his firm's website explaining how they respect LGBT diversity.

So, the guy who is set to defend the most anti-LGBT piece of legislation on the books is working for a firm that touts its LGBT diversity as reason to hire them or work for them? Interesting. He's probably got a copy of Atlas Shrugged sitting with his Bible on the nightstand.
