Once again the Republican, we’re gonna save marriage, juggernaut hits an iceberg.

“Marriage is the cornerstone on which our society was founded. For those who say that the Constitution is so sacred that we cannot or should not adopt the Federal Marriage Amendment, I would simply point out that marriage, and the sanctity of that institution, predates the American Constitution and the founding of our nation. Marriage, as a social institution, predates every other institution on which ordered society in America has relied.”

These are Sen. Ensign’s words from the floor of the U.S. Senate touting the Constitutional Amendment to save marriage.

Unfortunately, Sen. Ensign missed some votes this week, including an important one for Nevada. He had to fly home to hold the usual Republican press conference to disclose his nine month affair with a campaign worker back in 2007-2008. Oh yeah, this is one of the Senators who voted against Bill Clinton in the impeachment trial. You know, because a blow job is immoral, but a month’s long affair is OK.

I accept that nobody’s perfect, and that’s why I don’t go around inserting myself into the personal lives of everyone else. I wish the Republican’s would take literally their “small government” mantra, and get the hell out of everyone else’s bedrooms…Sounds like their own bedrooms are busy enough.

Update: It also turns out that Ensign demanded Larry Craig resign after Craig’s little airport restroom adventure. Ensign has yet to announce his own resignation.

In the past couple of weeks, Ellen DeGeneres had John McCain on her show, and they discussed same-sex marriage. I’ve come realize that Ellen is a very smart person, capable of putting forth a very rational argument in a very concise way.

The good folks at Box Turtle Bulletin have made the transcript available here.

While I’m sure the krazy kristian kooks are reveling in the golden egg handed them by the California Supreme Court (“see, it’s just a matter of time before these ‘activists’ judges makes us let the queers here in Florida get married, and then all the heterosexual marriages will be destroyed”), here’s a little tidbit for them to get worried about.

For some years Gallup has polled Americans about what is moral. Since 2001 homosexuality has been on the list, and it seems that in this year’s poll in May things evened out. 48% of Americans believe homosexuality is immoral, but the same percentage say it’s not.

Gallop Poll ResultsUnfortunately, this means that the Republicans have lost the threat of communism, and now are losing the threat of faggots as a tool for their political gain. I think that’s why they’ve been trying make immigrants the next target of hate, but that isn’t catching on so well.

Rest assured though, they will milk the grave threats of the homosexual agenda for all they can.
