From this morning's Washington Post:

"Meanwhile, interest groups on the left and right are preparing for showdowns over flag desecration and same-sex marriage in June, when Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) has scheduled floor votes on the always-controversial issues. Both efforts call for constitutional amendments, which require a two-thirds majority vote in the House and the Senate, followed by ratification by three-fourths of the states.

Frist, who is weighing a 2008 presidential bid, often touts the proposed amendment to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The effort failed in both houses in 2004. The Senate fell 12 votes short of the number needed to cut off debate, and House supporters could not muster the two-thirds majority they needed in their chamber."

Great to see that Frist is relying on the old scary homosexuals tactic to rile up his base. It's not like there's anything else going on in this country.
