FMA Dead But Not Forgotten

It’s not very surprising, but there are already at least 44 senators who have “come out” against an anti-gay-marriage constitutional amendment. Only 34 would have been required to block it.

That’s good.

But, just as the amendment would have been a symbolic misuse of the Constitution to exclude homosexuals from a part of social life (even if it wouldn’t ban civil unions), so is Bush’s support of such an amendment a symbolic misuse of his office (even if it doesn’t pass).
