The Most Pressing Issue?

President Bush's election-cycle "gay marriage" pandering nonsense has died in the Senate. It's fully expected demise, however, has not stopped a cavalcade of idiots from opening their mouths:

"We're going to continue to press this issue," Colorado Republican Sen. Wayne Allard said. "If it's up to me, we'll have a vote on this issue every year."
And each year you'll be sadly disappointed, once again proving that you collect a taxpayer-funded paycheck for being a dipshit. Congrats!
"We're making progress, and we're not going to stop until marriage between a man and a woman is protected," said Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas.
Apparently Mr. Brownback is aware of some nefarious plot to prevent men and women from marrying. I mean, why else would it need protecting? Is someone stopping them from tying the knot?

Oh, wait, you mean Brownback is just repeating ill-informed soundbites that can fit into the three-second memory of his idiot base? I see.

"This is an issue that is of significant importance to many Americans," Boehner said. "We have significant numbers of our members who want a vote on this, so we are going to have a vote."
Um, no. The polls say that the war and immigration are much more important to the American people. However, those problems can't be solved with a simple up/down vote for codified and institutionalized bigotry, so no wonder the simple minds in the Republican party are focused on this.

From a CNN International article:

"I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one," said Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican.
Huh, let's see... the rebuilding and future safety of New Orleans (that would be in Louisiana, Senator Ritter, although I know an ignoramus like you might not have brushed up on geography)... the war on terror... the war in Iraq... immigration... oil.... yep, I can see where stopping two adults from having a legally recognized relationship is so very pressing.

I swear to any non-existent deity that I am leaning further left than my privates now. The Democrats, as flawed and misguided as they are, are not half as sickening as these Republican moral fascist pukes.

O! to want for a sane Libertarian candidate...
