    Isn't it amazing...? The Senate could waste three whole days debating a constitutional amendment about a non-issue that everyone admitted could never be passed, yet they couldn't find the time to address the very real issue of the attrocities committed at Abu Graib prison.

    I sure hope Bush can protect marriage for me.
    In fact, I'm so worried about the future of marriage in our country I'm going to try and take out marriage insurance.
    I'm also going to buy the biggest gun I can get my hands on, so if anyone tries to take marriage away from me or infringe on my interpretation of marriage...<Bang!>...end of discussion

    Protect marriage!
    Oust Bush!

    How is it that you think the Senate should address "the very real issue " ?

    you are so right. all government business should cease and the will of the people should cease until we sulk over Abu Graib at least a few more months. A matter-of-fact, let's keep it as the only topic in Washington until the dems are back in power. Yeah, that's it; that's the ticket!

    I think the American people will get bored with the issue before the Dems are back in power. I mean 40 years is a long time to talk about such a nonissue.

    I wasn't talking about "all" government business, zipperhead. Just the fact that the Senate ground to a halt to debate the non-issue of a constitutional amendment banning same gender marriage. There really are things of far greater import than whether or not two men or two women can get married.
