Radio Ass Kiss on the Air

Once again demonstrating his states' rights conservative credentials (much like he loves to show off his fiscal restraint conservative creds), Bush, in his weekly radio address, is advocating a Constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

President Bush on Saturday backed a resolution to amend the Constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman even though the idea has little chance of being passed in the Senate.

"Ages of experience have taught us that the commitment of a husband and a wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society," Bush said in his Saturday radio address. "Marriage cannot be cut off from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening this good influence on society."

A few thoughts:

I'm not sure which is worse... that a President might honestly be such a willfully ignorant bigot as to promote this amendment, or that a President might not mind gay marriage but would sell out so many Americans just to pander to his ever-shrinking base of religious conservatives.

Not that it much matters, as between issues such as this, the War on (Some) Drugs, impotence on Social Security reform, and government spending and pork that would make any Democrat spooge all over a White House intern while on the phone with world leaders, the Republicans continue their march toward irrelevance when it comes to my next vote.

The Democrats have been there for a while, but I might have to make like my privates and hang left for a bit to help teach the GOP a lesson.

Noted: Ed Brayton has more here and here.
