I'm glad that President Bush is now supporting a Constitutional amendment to ban gay "marriages", but as a conservative there are whole host of other controversial issues I wish the president would wade into before spending political capital on this. For example, how about working a little harder to install Constitutional judges? Then maybe we wouldn't need such an amendment at all.
James Taranto has the best line on this topic. A noted homosexual-American said:
This president has now made the Republican party an emblem of exclusion and division and intolerance. Gay people will now regard it as their enemy for generations--and rightly so.To which Mr. Taranto replied:
Since when do gay people have generations?
