Federal Marriage Amendment open thread

The president’s going to try to toss some red meat to the base today by, uh, coming out in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment. Which doesn’t have a prayer of passing.

Consider this your chance to sound off. I think this guy‘s right on the money, but I’m also among what’s probably a small minority of right-wingers in thinking that, however distasteful one might find certain aspects of gay culture, the Equal Protection Clause should/does protect their right to marry.

Anyway, have at it.

Update: LaShawn‘s not placated, either.

Update: Patterico also opposes the FMA. I don’t have numbers to back this up, but my sense has always been that the righty blogosphere is more moderate than the conservative base whereas the lefty blogosphere is more extreme than the liberal base. Consider this an invitation to chime in on that point as well. Is it true? And if so, why?

Update: Political Pit Bull and Confederate Yankee also think Bush is full of it. Does any righty blogger support this thing?
