Charles Krauthammer gets it right (mostly)

On Bush being "divisive" --
"Predictably, Massachusetts Democrats are on the attack. John Kerry charges the president with seeking 'a wedge issue to divide the American people.' Ted Kennedy amplifies: 'It's about politics -- an attempt to drive a wedge between one group of citizens and the rest of the country, solely for partisan advantage.'

"Wedge? Marriage has been around for, oh, 5,000 years. In every society, in every place, in every time it has been defined as an opposite-sex union. Then four robed eminences in Boston decree otherwise. With the stroke of a pen, they radically redefine the most ancient of all social institutions. And then those not quite prepared to accept this undebated, unlegislated, unvoted, unnegotiated revolution are the ones accused of creating a political wedge!"
Revolution by Fiat.

He has a bit about the "sacredness of the Constitution" being more important than that of marriage, that I disagree, but can somewhat sympathize with, but I could sympathize with some broader procedural amendment that could stop crap like the current gay "marriage" fiasco from being created out of whole cloth by state and federal courts, but I don't see how that would work. For now, it sems like the best we can do is at least try to heard off these abuses.
