Sens. Larry “Toe-Tapper with a Wide Stance” Craig and David “I Heart Hookers” Vitter are original co-sponsors the new version of the Federal Marriage Amendment. I am so not making that up.

Called the Marriage Protection Amendment, the bill aims to write anti-gay discrimination into the U.S. Constitution by stating marriage as “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”
