Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and E.J. Graff (The American Prospect, Brandeis University)

[Editor’s note: This diavlog was recorded before the Supreme Court announced that it will hear the Prop 8 and DOMA cases.]

On Adamize, Adam and E.J. talk about the Supreme Court and gay marriage. E.J. predicts the challenge to DOMA will be open-and-shut. Adam asks whether the federalism angle on the DOMA challenge could appeal to the court’s conservatives. Adam wonders whether marriage equality’s recent victories at the ballot box strengthen its chances in court, and E.J. describes a nightmare scenario. Turning to the news of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy, E.J. explains why Americans are having fewer children.
