If we're going to preserve the sanctity of marriage, will they give us free sugar? And what's the shelf-life on marriage preserves, anyway?

I've been meaning to write something lengthy on the same-sex marriage issue (as in, "a foul stench is issuing from the Oval Office, and I'm pretty sure it's the smell of democracy's rotting corpse"), but in the meantime I'll let O-dub say it better. Check him out on the "Oppression Olympics" and why same-sex unions are very fucking much a question of basic civil rights.

Meanwhile, Maureen Dowd compares Mel Gibson with Bush and comes up a very good question:

"If the president is truly concerned about preserving the sanctity of marriage, as one of my readers suggested, why not make divorce illegal and stone adulterers?"

Then she gets really hardcore:

"The pols keep arguing that institutions can't be changed when, in fact, they change all the time. Haven't they ever heard of the institution of slavery?"
