The Senate yesterday debated the merits of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. As obivously ludicrous and fundamentally mean-spirited as this is, I prefer to tweak this latest "Hey-Look-Over-There-At-That-Shiny-Thing" tactic on precedural grounds.
I recall that during the 1992 campaign, just about the most important thing we could do to save our society and protect our children from an amoral, caotic future was to amend the constitution...to outlaw flag burning.
I don't believe such an amendment has been adopted yet.
So my favorite retort to the RNC idiots on gay marriage is, "first things first." Let's get the whole flag-burning problem squared away, then turn to gay marriage.
