Emboldened by response to 'Wedding Crashers' cameo, McCain takes ceremony-wrecking sentiment to state's homos

by Jeremy Hooper

   U.S. Senator John McCain, who has voiced opposition to a federal gay marriage-banning amendment, has announced that he is backing a measure that would constitutionally bar the unions in his home state of Arizona. Arizonans in the know are saying that this makes McCain the most prominent Grand Canyon Stater to unapologetically bless this unapologetic non-blessing of queer marriage. This of course means that the state's biggest tourist attraction is no longer the only noted Arizona commodity that will receive our descriptor of "a-hole"

If those who share the Senator's opinion collect enough signatures, the proposal -- or rotten piece of discriminatory feces, for short -- will appear on the the state's November '06 ballots. Let's hope that by that time in the not too distant future, a majority of the state's citizens will come to the realization that McCain's sentiment is really just a big ol' steaming pile of misguided McBullsh*t.

We're disappointed in ya, J-Mac.
