Republicans Anti-Gay?

I read this little note in the Daily Herald Morning Briefing:
US House leaders may have delayed taking action against former Florida Republican Rep. Mark Foley because they were afraid of appearing anti-gay, according to Sen. Orrin Hatch.

You think if they were worried about appearing anti-gay they’d quit it with all of the anti-marriage bills they keep forcing down the throat of liberty. And Hatch is the messenger here? I mean really, do people forget that Orrin Hatch has said that the two most important issues in America right now are gays getting married and flag burning? I don’t think he needs to worry about appearing anti-gay because it’s very clear that he is.

It seems to me like nothing more than political maneuvering.

I’ve remained quiet on the “Foley” situation on the blog because I really just felt like it was too easy a target, but man. This is just too much hypocrisy to ignore. This, for me, was the straw that broke the camels back.


Maybe they should worry all the time about appearing anti-gay.

In other news, Vote for Pete Ashdown. It seems as though in the polls, Ashdown is polling as many points as the percentage of people who know who he is. So, having said that, spread the word about him and his campaign.

Get some yard signs and bumper stickers, donate to the campaign, knock on doors, do whatever you can.
