Alternate Text of the Federal Marriage Amendment

[Forget Alberto Gonzales! How about John Bolton for Supreme Court? If anybody challenges him, we'll say it's because they're prejudiced against people with ugly mustaches. Or hell, just put Karl Rove right in as Chief Justice. Nope, definitely the time that one party controls the Presidency, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the military, and the media, that's absolutely the right time to remove protections for the rights of minorities — especially by Constitutional amendment.]
