17. They do love those wedge issues don't they?
There is no way the neo-cons are actually going to do anything, as far as constitutional amendments either. These issues are far more valuable as "boogeymen" that unite right wingers against democrats, and translate into scare votes for the cons. Hell, the Gay Marriage amendment has disappeared off the face of the earth after the election ended, but don't worry, it will make a comeback as an issue during the 2006 elections. Just like the attempt to reverse Roe v. Wade will.

If the right didn't have something like these to scream about, they might actually have to talk about the raping and pillaging of Medicare, the attempted theft of social security, the failing of our educational system, large Corporations using their tax break money to offshore American jobs, a 500,000,000,000 trade deficit, the failure to capture Bin Laden, soldiers coming home in body bags, etc.
