Let's protect MARRIAGE! [Ignore what we did]

Ah yes the Republican Party- a bastion of moral rights. Today they introduced the Marriage Protection Act. So that marriage is between a man and a woman. In the house Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) introduced HJR 89 which did this. In the Senate Roger Wicker (R-MS) did the same, but struggled to find co sponsors.

Until today:
Two United States Senators implicated in extramarital sexual activity have named themselves as co-sponsors of S. J. RES. 43, dubbed the Marriage Protection Amendment. If ratified, the bill would amend the United States Constitution to state that marriage "shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."
Just in case your wondering who cosponsored:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), who was arrested June 11, 2007 on charges of lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal, is co-sponsoring the amendment along with Sen. David Vitter (R-LA).

Craig, who entered a guilty plea to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct, was detained and charged for attempting to engage in sexual activity with a male undercover police officer. His arrest and plea became public two months later. At that time, Craig attempted to withdraw his plea and enter a new plea of not guilty. To date, his efforts have been denied by the courts.

In July of 2007, Vitter was identified as a client of a prostitution firm owned by the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, commonly known as The DC Madam.

Yes, in effect the Protect Marriage Act is being cosponsored by a man who hired prostitutes and one who's been charged with trying to have gay sex with an undercover cop. At a bathroom in an airport.

Cue up the Alanis Morisette song.

And Obama says he's against the very amendment that's being discussed in Florida.

Paul Broun has been married four times! Maybe the bill needs to be changed to read "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and one woman at at time (and one or two on the side if you can get away with it)."
