Trouble every day 

Well, it seems the Texas Soufflé considers gay marriage non-fabulous: in fact, he's "deeply troubled" by it.

Bush, a strong supporter of limiting marriage to heterosexual couples, warned again that he would support a constitutional amendment to protect and defend that institution, but declined to say whether that time had yet arrived.

"I am deeply troubled by activist judges who are defining marriage," Bush said before holding talks with Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. "I have watched carefully what's happened in San Francisco, where licenses were being issued even though the law states otherwise. ...

Funny thing:

The only "activist judges" I can remember are the ones who handed Bush his office, something that I, too, found deeply troubling.

And I've got to pat myself on the back on this one: I knew Bush was going to break out that old "activist judges" meme before I even read the story!

A-and: Isn't it deeply insulting to call the judges activists when in fact the gays getting married are the true activists, just as much as Rosa Parks was?

Now here's a song from a long time back:

Well I’m about to get up sick
From watchin my t.v.
Been checkin’ out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it’s gonna change, my friend
Is anybody’s guess
So I’m watching and I’m waiting
Hopin’ for the best
Even think I go to praying
Every time I hear them sayin’
That there’s no way to delay
That trouble comin’ everyday
No way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day (Frank Zappa, "Trouble Every Day")
