There's tons of stuff out today about the defeat of the gay marraige ban, but I just wanted to focus in on two things...

1. From a Yahoo news story:
"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."

In response, Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"

Um, duh? Which side of the fence is the push for this ridiculous amendment coming from, anyway?

2. From a story linked from Drudge:

"I call on the Congress to pass this amendment, send it to the states for ratification so we can take this issue out of the hands of over-reaching judges and put it back where it belongs -- in the hands of the American people," Bush had said Monday.

Am I the only one who sees the irony here? The judges - those who interpret the law - don't agree with Bush and his far-right base, so he's going OVER their heads and trying to pass a constitutional amendment so that this issue is, effectively, completely OUT OF THE HANDS of the American People?

While we're at it, I guess we should outlaw divorce.
