Here We Go Again

The bigot brigade are gearing up, hoping to market the anti-gay marriage vote to Republicans for the 2006 mid-term elections. My old Princeton politics professor Robbie George is once again playing a prominent role, helping put together a slew of Catholic bishops to sign an ecumenical letter from clergy. There's also a companion postcard campaign in support of the Federal Marriage Amendment. In the silver lining department, the NYTimes optimistically suggests that this issue isn't the hot button it used to be -- if for no other reason than because key swing states have already passed various superDOMA amendments and laws.
