Some conservatives are misplacing their anger at the Supreme Court's ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act, which denied benefits to legally married same-sex couples, is unconstitutional.

The Twitter account for SCOTUSblog, a site run by a group of law professors and lawyers and sponsored by Bloomberg Law, has been taking some of the heat and having fun with it:

The Supreme Court doesn't have an official presence on Twitter, but perhaps those angry at SCOTUS can commiserate with parody Antonin Scalia.
