Bush to Endorse Gay Marriage Ban

President Bush will reaffirm his support for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage on Monday, the day before the Senate holds a vote on the measure. Since the amendment is acknowledged to have no chance of passing—it may not get even 50 votes, let alone the necessary two-thirds—the vote is largely a symbolic gesture to the GOP’s most bigoted, mean-spirited wing. The religious right has recently been voicing its displeasure with the Republicans it helped vote to power, so many officials in that party are eager to get some last-minute pandering in before the November elections.
