How Many Bigots Are There in the Senate?

Rather than focus on real issues like the war in Iraq or the escalating budget deficit, the Republican Senate has decided to focus on writing discrimination into the Constitution.  The Republicans have seen their base of support erode for months now, so they are banking on the issue of gay marriage to help them shore up the base.

   You see, voters are stupid.  Every election, the GOP brings up gay marriage and flag burning in order to garner support from their base.  These issues have no hope of passing, mind you, but the GOP likes to talk about them and ignore more important topics.  Why you may ask?  Well, because the neocon vote is very easily swayed and gets all fired up when the talk is about gay people having equal rights.  The sad part is that it works.

What the nutjobs on the right fail to understand is that the Republicans are very good at winning elections, but are very bad at governing.  The war in Iraq is a disaster, the war in Afghanistan is getting worse, the government is spending a record amount of money, and immigration has still not been fully addressed.  If I didn't know any better, I'd say this administration was filled with Democrats.  They have no fiscal responsibility, they can't manage a war, and they don't want to deal with illegals.  Sounds like Democrats to me.

Oh, so back to the bigot thing.  It appears that there are about 52 bigots in the Senate.  That is the estimated number of people who will vote to amend the Constitution to make sure that gay people never get married.  This reminds me of the part in the Constitution that says that black people should only be counted as 3/5 of a person in the population.  Discrimination is discrimination is discrimination.
