He couldn't even wait a full news cycle before going there

[Updated below.]

“He,” in this case, is Rand Paul (R [Need you ask?] - KY [Surprise!]), who reacted to this morning's SCOTUS news that DOMA is dead as a dodo with a General Zod-like plea for the purity of our genetic heritage:
I think this is the conundrum and gets back to what you were saying in the opening -- whether or not churches should decide this. But it is difficult because if we have no laws on this people take it to one extension further. Does it have to be humans?
This was on Glenn Beck's show, so there was no possibility of anyone with good judgment standing nearby ready to stuff a towel in the Senator's mouth before he said something exactly like this.

But once again, we have to ask the awkward but necessary questions:

Why is it that this is the first place their minds go?

Can you really be this worried about stopping something that you haven't already been thinking about -- a lot?

H/t to Pierce.

[Update: John Oliver writes a concurring opinion.]
