House to vote on marriage amendment

Determined to quicken their slippery slide toward utter worthlessness, undeterred by the sound trouncing Senate homobigots recently received, and destined to fail, today the House will nonetheless vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment. "The vote, scheduled for Tuesday, will occur in a week devoted to several priorities of social conservatives -- what House GOP leaders call their American values agenda."

Which, though nauseating, is at least accurate. "A new report [released by the human rights organization Global Rights] says the United States isn't doing enough to protect its gay citizens from discrimination and abuse."

Hatin' the gays: It's as American as smashing an apple pie with a baseball bat.
