Federal Marriage Amendment

"I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one," said Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican.

Seriously? This Senator believes that preventing same-sex couples from marrying is MORE IMPORTANT than, say:

- The whole mess in Iraq
- Rebuilding from Katrina
- Gas prices
- Educating our children
- Iran's nuclear program
- Our country's growing crystal meth epidemic

The mere fact that the Repub's are bringing the FMA "out of the closet" again (so to speak) is to divert their voters' attention away from the things that really matter - i.e. the stuff they have screwed up on the last 2-4-6 years... Diversionary tactics.

It's too bad that certain demographics of voters aren't aware enough, or maybe not intelligent enough, to see through this cheap ploy.

UPDATE: The Senate voted 49 to 48 today to defeat the discriminatory Federal Marriage Amendment...
