Bush to get government into the sanctity business 

Yep, he's going to endorse the anti-gay marriage amendment. It's just a question of when. Mike Allen reports:

President Bush said yesterday that he is troubled [back] by the issuance of marriage licenses to gay couples in San Francisco, but he again stopped short of endorsing a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Bush plans to make such an endorsement, but the announcement's timing is being debated in the White House.

Sheesh. Is there so much love in the world that we can't recognize all of it?

UPDATE: Directions on getting a marriage license in San Francisco are here.

Wedding album here.

UPDATE Yep, just ask Acting President Rove:

Bush's biggest immediate decision is when to publicly embrace a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and whether he should also come out against allowing same-sex couples to have civil unions that give them many of the same rights as married people.

Republican sources said Bush's political adviser Karl Rove has assured leading conservatives the president will soon give his backing to a constitutional amendment.

"This is absolutely the number one issue for conservatives and the sooner Bush gets out there the more he will energize his support," said Appell.

Sure. I'm sure Gingrich, Hyde, Livinstone, Limbaugh and all the rest are going to line up in defense of marriage—by sponsoring a constitutional amendment against adultery and divorce.

Funny how the chickenhawks on Iraq are chickenhawks when it comes to defending their own marriages, isn't it?
