Ayatollah Brownback?

And now for something completely different...

I'm quite humored by Sam Brownback's (R-Kansas) efforts to bring the amendment against gay marriage to a vote. Brownback is obviously playing to religious conservatives in preparation for a run for the White House. 19 States have already passed bans on gay marriage, but Brownback wants to supercede those laws with a federal law. Does he realize that this is the completely out of bed with his argument on abortion, where he argues Roe vs. Wade should be overturned to give the states the option of banning abortion? Does he understand the theoretical Republican ideal of returning federal powers to the states? I'm not so sure why Brownback cares so much. Gay marriage has been banned in Kansas, and you can rest assured gays were already avoiding the state at all costs.

Please, registered Republicans, do me a favor and don't give the Ayatollah any shot at the White House.
