Federal Marriage Amendment is officially dead for '07
Colorado's chief supporters of a federal Constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage said they have no plans to bring up the issue this year.

Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., and Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo., have been active in recent years trying to win support for such an amendment.

Democrats now control Congress and both said prospects for the legislation are slim.

Allard said he'd raise the issue if there was a decent chance for a floor debate, but doubts there'll be such an opportunity.

Musgrave spokesman Aaron Johnson said she won't introduce the legislation this session.
In other news, Marilyn Musgrave still is a giant cunt. When the majority in both houses doesn't court the Evangelical Fucktard vote anymore and instead prefers sound MEANINGFUL legislation, you can't squeak bullshit like this through to secure that base. Why? Because that base isn't interested in the politics of sensibility, only the politics of derision.
