Suggestions for Pres. Bush 

Yesterday Karl Rove told Fox News Sunday that Pres. Bush would be once more pressing Congress to pass a Federal Marriage Amendment, for the following reason:
"If we want to have a hopeful and decent society, we ought to aim for the ideal, and the ideal is that marriage ought to be, and should be, a union of a man and a woman," Bush political aide Karl Rove told "Fox News Sunday."

The rationale appears to be that whatever is viewed as the ideal by the administration is in fact the ideal for every citizen of the country, and whatever does not match that ideal should be barred from existence. Accordingly, some suggested items in need of banning by constitutional amendment:
  • Divorce
  • Single parents for any reason
  • Homosexuality
  • Being unemployed and therefore unproductive
  • Any questioning of the administration's policies
  • The Establishment Clause
  • Condoms
  • Extramarital sexual activity (look out, Congress!)
  • Democrats
  • Michael Moore
