Bush isn't even trying anymore...

Ok, I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but could it be any more transparent that our beloved Shrub in Chief is pulling a Johnny Cochrane here with this renewed effort to get a Constitutional amendment passed defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman? It seems to me that there are far more pressing issues out there right now such as Iraq, Iran, FEMA, Pedophile Homeland Security Officers, Scooter, The Hammer, Rove, Oil Prices, Rumsfeld's accelerating slide into insanity, and Paris Hilton's new CD. But, we do have a very important election in a few months, and Dubya is pointing to a picture of Chewbacca and telling the American people to 'Look at the monkey. Look at the silly monkey!' There isn't even the slightest hint of them trying to make this seem like a legitimate thing to do now. He even admitted in the past that there is little hope of getting the two-thirds majority votes necessary to pass the amendment, so this is nothing more than political smoke and mirrors. I'd like to ask just how dumb does he think we are, but I know for a fact that most of the state of Louisiana will get all fired up about this, and I am sure that there is an equally frightening number of others who will agree. Where are Tim Burton's Martians when we need them?
