    What's the best way to describe how the once-formidable Republican Party is struggling? Is the GOP Jake LaMotta, stubbornly rushing into punches (the Iraq war) and getting pounded into a final pathetic retirement (K Street consulting firms)? Is it Doug Flutie, abandoning a tattered playbook (Rovism) and throwing a final Hail Mary pass (war with Iran) to triumph over Miami (Nancy Pelosi)?

    What's the best way to describe a desperate political group groping around in the dark and throwing any and all shit against the wall to see if it sticks?

    Chimpy McPresident (a.k.a. Dubbyuh) will be giving a speech supporting a Constitutional amendment banning same-gender marriage. Bill Frist is speaking in support of an amendment banning the burning of the US flag. While they're at it, why don't they sponsor an amendment requiring couples to get married wrapped in the flag?

    A desperate GOP is working to whip the lunatic fringe base into a homophobic, red, white and blue lather with issues which directly impact on...ummmm...nobody. The Senate can't find the time to debate the war in Iraq, or the war profiteering by certain US corporations in Iraq, or the President's overstepping, repeatedly, of his constitutional authority. They can, however, damn well find the time to debate non-issues such as same-gender marriage and flag-burning. What an effing creep-show.

    God forbid we should focus on something affecting us all. After all, we can't have these upity homosexuals turning us all into sex-starved homosexyuls and fornicators while they burn the flag, now can we.

    Anyone who falls for that tired old GOP bullshit should really look into getting themselves sterilized. They're just dragging the rest of the gene pool down with them

    No Amendment requiring blathering, extremist lefties to have their mouths sewn shut with fishing line?

    I am S-O-O-O disappointed.:rolleyes:

    Since they're on the subject, why not a constitutional amendment to ban pre-marital sex all together? It is logically consistent with the notion of banning the marriage of same-gender couples.

    And, s-o-o-o typical, you can't intelligently address the issue, so you resort to lame-assed insults. I'm s-o-o-o disappointed, but not in the least bit surprised. :rolleyes:

    Actually, an amendment banning same-gender marriages could violate the notion of separation of church and state as objections to such unions are rooted in religious doctrine.
