It's all falling into place

Amazing! Just three days after Alan Keyes announced that he'd be running for president in 2008--news which, by the way, had several of us in hysterics; I myself let out peals of fiendish laughter when I heard the news--with the aim of "rais[ing] the standard ... of our allegiance to God and His authority", it appears that his plan is succeeding! Noted Mormon heathen Mitt Romney has announced his support for inscribing homophobia into our Constitution:
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is launching a radio ad touting the strength of his opposition to gay marriage.

Romney, who has come under criticism from conservatives for his past support of some gay rights issues, says he is the only major GOP candidate backing a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.

"Major GOP candidate" being a list that apparently excludes Mike Huckabee and Sam Brownback, both of whom also support said amendment.
"Not all Republican candidates agree, but defending marriage is the right thing to do," Romney says in the 60-second spot to begin airing Wednesday.


The ad, coming as Iowa is embroiled in court fight over its gay marriage ban, points to Romney's role in battling a Massachusetts court ruling that paved the way for same-sex marriages there.

"As Republicans we must oppose discrimination and defend traditional marriage: one man, one woman," Romney says in the spot.

Right. We must oppose discrimination by enshrining it into the supreme law of the land. That's unaccountably brilliant coming from the kind of man who thinks we have to bomb Iraqis to get them to like us and that we have to wage war to gain peace.

But Romney's brilliance does not end there, no! If he writes his religious beliefs into the Constitution, then he will no longer have to choose between upholding the Constitution and upholding the Bible!
