Our Washington politicians at work...

President Bush and congressional Republicans are aiming the political spotlight this week on efforts to ban gay marriage, with events at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue - all for a constitutional amendment with scant chance of passage but wide appeal among social conservatives.

The President will make his speech in the Rose Garden this morning and members of the Senate will spend three or four days debating this issue.

It's pretty obvious why today's Washington politicians are held in low esteem by the voters. There is no limit to what they will do to appeal to the "base."
