"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry
into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts,
which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote
against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other
efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."

In response, Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over
half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"

Would he rather we think that they are not bigots at all, but only
cynics who exploit the bigotry of others to win elections so that
they canpush the issue again in 2008? Which is worse?
