The "Marriage Amendment":

There's been a fair amount of pundritry on line about this, but I think Bernard Chazelle, on ATinyRevolution, got it exactly right:
The Craig-Vitter Amendment
By: Bernard Chazelle

Senators Larry Craig and David Vitter are co-sponsors of S. J. Res. 43: "A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to marriage." As ThinkProgress puts it:
If passed, the bill would amend the Constitution to declare that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”
They're still haggling over the precise language. Vitter is pushing for "marriage shall consist only of the union of a man and his diaper." But Craig stalls.
