Is He at it Again?
Bush's poll ratings are swirling around the toilet and he's become a liability to the GOP during an election year, so what does he do?
He trots out his secret weapon again: the anti-gay marriage amendment.
Doesn't the Senate have better things to do than toying with the Constitution with an issue that most of the red states have already banned?
Bush already has referred to the Constitution as, "a goddamned piece of paper," so why should he care what's in it when he's never shown any interest in it before?
"Sadly, President Bush is playing election-year politics with this divisive issue," the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said Friday. "He is shamelessly using this ploy to energize his right-wing base. We should never rewrite the Constitution to enshrine intolerance."
