The Obama administration offers a legal defense of dont ask, dont tell on the grounds that its rationally related to the governments legitimate interest in military discipline and cohesion.

The Obama administration offers a legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act on the grounds that courts have widely held that certain marriages performed elsewhere need not be given effect, because they conflicted with the public policy of the forum. (Quite true the Supreme Court did uphold anti-miscegenation laws, for example. Still, an awkward precedent for this administration to invoke, one would have thought.)
