How dare we go on with our lives as though nothing is happening? How can we sleep at night? Why you ask? Because MARRIAGE IS UNDER ATTACK! Those homos are after the most sacred of institutions! God forbid a gay couple gets married and adopts a few kids from the terribly immense orphan population! Everytime I see a gay couple, I feel they're just waiting for me to turn around so they can stab the marriage sanctity out of me, despite me being single! Oh the humanity (the straight humanity that is)!
Ahh! Senate Republicans sure know how to waste time, don't they? Instead of debating the Iraq War (which is going nowhere fast), health care, gas prices, inflation, immigration, and other serious issues, they have decided to promote the Marriage Protection Amendment, which would ban same-sex marriage. What ever happened to letting the states decide? So much for their argument against Roe V Wade. The amendment has no chance of passing, yet the wingnuts continue to waste time. This tells me one thing, Republicans are pulling their last few tricks to get people on their side before November, which will likely be devastating for them! Good luck guys, you'll need it!
In the meantime, I'll add some wishfull-thinking and say that future Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are probably drafting their plans to put this country back on track.
