In his meandering, theme-less State of the Union Address last night, near the conclusion Bush declared:
"They [the American people] are concerned about unethical conduct by public officials and discouraged by activist courts that try to redefine marriage."
In 8 seconds, the president dismissed the corruption scandals gripping Congress and his Administration and equated these in the American mind with judges who have applied state constitutional precepts on equality to lesbian and gay couples.
The reaction? Applause from both sides of the proverbial aisle - Democrats want to underscore the unethical conduct reference and Republicans want to take another swing at scapegoating homosexuals for the moral decline of America.
