There are many advantages to having a Senate Majority leader who in a past life was a prominent Cardiac Surgeon. One such advantage is not having to look far when your party is suffering from acute sinking ship-itis or when the Believers in the party need a dose of Snake Oil to keep them coming back. And of course the good doctor does not disappoint! The GOP really got themselves a two-fer when they chose the prominent Heart Surgeon to replace Senator Trent Lott. No need to worry about the ailing poll numbers now, the esteemed doctor and Senate Majority leader has a cure. He just gets out his little black doctor bag and pulls out a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and waves it under the noses of the all of those worried sick religious leaders and voila, their faith is restored. Nothing works better than stripping thousands and thousands of American citizens of dignity, rights, and equality. Heck it’s better than smelling salts! Their holy juices start flowing again, their tired little souls are revived, and everything that ailed them is cured. They are ready to once again work hard to invade the privacy of all Americans and fight for the right to legislate everyone’s morals and bedroom behavior. God bless this great country.
