The United States is set for another round of elections. Many have written off the republicans as being toast afte the the last year where the President has seen his numbers reach the levels of unpopularity never seen by any other, perhaps Richard Nixon another Republican went lower.
Gays again will be important to the Republican campaign. Senate Majority leader Bill Frist (R-TN) will attempt to bring the marriage amendment forward this year for a full vote in both houses of congress. It is a political move to move the agenda away from that of George Bush and Iraq, the Republicans scandal in fundraising and of coursr the trouble former House Majority leader Tom DeLay is having.
Likely one of the most corrupt congresses in years and they have a way out. All they need to do is convince enough Americans that gay people getting married is far worse than the trampling of civil rights, forget about the war in Iraq and the absolute failure of the Department of Homeland Security in dealing with the Hurricanes.
The plan worked last time. The effort to get bans on gay marriage into state constitutions brought people out to vote, people that may not have otherwise. Will it work a second time? It could.
