George Bush and Political Desperation

Look, George W. Bush is an asshole.  I don't know how else to say it.  There is something uniquely wrong with attempting to revivify a failing presidency by appealing to the worst in people, and this is precisely what he and Dr. Frist are attempting to do with this gay marriage amendment, which is probably one of the most asinine policy options on the face of the planet.  I can appreciate that people have varying views on this issue, and in fact I have known some otherwise very intelligent people who argue that, in fact, the marriage of homosexuals is somehow bad for society.  That such an assertion is self-evidently false, and usually devolves into an argument about bestiality (for chrissakes) never seems to bother them.  When people say: 'where do you draw the line'? I say, my line is as easily drawable and arbitrary as your line. And I draw the line on 'man on dog', as the very serious Mr. Santorum insists on calling it.  To make you feel better I'll also draw the line on polygamy, incest, man-child love, sex with kittens, and whatever bullshit hypothetical people insistent on hating gays can somehow, sickly, imagine with their otherwise very feeble, monochrome imaginations. There is something wrong with these people.  We know this.  There is something really cynical about the leader of a nation who exploits a pervasive national pyschosis for political gain.  And I hope it's about time for karma to set in and kick this son-of-a-bitch in the ass for good.
