The Dish posted a flurry of commentary today. For firsthand accounts of the Iranian election, go here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. We also tracked reports of chaotic voting here, here, here, and here. And we aired political analysis here, here, here, and here.

Today's other big story was the release of the administration's troubling brief in the California DOMA case. Legal analysis posted here, here, here, here, here, and here suggests that Obama has no desire to challenge DOMA - a clear betrayal of his campaign promise. Even McCain appeared to have a better plan for gay rights. Obama's top gay vented. And Dan Savage is pissed. But Andrew was more circumspect, especially after seeing who filed the brief. However, at the end of the day, Andrew's pretty pissed too. Meanwhile, public support for marriage equality continued to grow.

Elsewhere on the Dish, some fishy details emerged in a Gitmo suicide case. Rove and Reynolds continued to prove what sad partisans they are, and Erick Erickson surged into the lead for the Malkin Award. Last but certainly not least, we published another account of a late-term pregnancy, this time from a lesbian couple in Kansas.

After a long day, we could all use another mental health break.
