Is the First Amendment Double-Ply?

Because I do believe Bush is using it to wipe his ass. (Ganked from Queer Day.

Alabama State Rep. Gerald Allen, who sponsored the state ban on gay marriage last year, has the backing of President George W. Bush on the issue. He had already paid at least five visits to the White House where the two have discussed the bill in detail.

Emphasis mine. Now, this could be Allen lying. This could be him visiting Bush on, like, tax issues, and lying about how the Big Man supports his need to burn- oh, I'm sorry, bury books.

But here is a man, a man whose job description calls for him to uphold the Constitution to the letter of the law. Now I'm not exactly sure how the Alabama state Constitution deals with the issue of government censorship, but the last time I checked, in the eyes of the federal government, it was a very bad thing. Which means Bush has given the go-ahead to this paleolithic Puritan fuckstick to shit all over the Bill of Rights.

God. Damnit.

This is what's happening to our nation, people. Anything controversial is being pushed out of the scene, and the people in the White House are letting it happen. I'm sure Thomas Jefferson must be on spin cycle right now.
