Redstate is Blaming the GOP for Turning Virginia Blue

Old FruitfliesThis is awesome… From Redstate:

Here’s a case study on why the GOP is failing in Virginia. It has taken me some time to compile this. I wanted to talk to representatives of the various candidates. They confirm what I report below. Likewise, I talked to a Democrat who confirms that the Democratic Party of Virginia did not stoop to the level of jackassery that the Republican Party of Virginia did.

In Virginia, all candidates must collect a minimum of 10,000 signatures from registered voters to get on the ballot. To make it tougher, the signatures must be collected on forms provided by the board of elections and the forms must be signed AND NOTARIZED by the solicitor. Its a big big undertaking.

Once the petitions were due, the state board of elections immediately turned them over to the respective state party chairs. The party chairs have complete authority to determine who qualifies and who doesn’t.

The Virginia Democratic Party actually went out and collected 7,500 signatures for each of their presidential candidates. Edwards, Richardson, and Kucinich all submitted the bare minimum of 10,000 signatures. Guess what? They were all approved.

Giuliani In Dragblah blah blah… and then this:

Contrast that with the Republican Party of Virginia:

Romney, Fred, Rudy, McCain, Huckabee, and Paul all filed over 15,000 signatures each – well above the recommended minimums.

So what did the Virginia GOP do? Well, they did absolutely nothing to help any of the candidates other than put out clipboards at their state fair booth.

Then they decided to attempt some kind of unprecedented “verification” process.

blah blah blah… and finally this:

Meanwhile the Democrats will be on the ballot in Virginia – a state that probably won’t even matter in this process since their primary is February 12th – and they’ll all be focusing on building their ground game to beat us.

The Virginia GOP should be embarrassed.

What’s the matter with our party???????

Keep LeftLOL! I’m reminded of a story I read back in September ’07 when Virginia State Senator Devolites Davis (R-Fairfax Co.)…:

On the campaign trail, Devolites Davis describes herself as an independent, a moderate who can best represent a centrist constituency. At a forum Thursday night before Equality Fairfax, a gay-rights organization, she called herself a “RINO” — Republican in Name Only — a derogatory term used by members of the GOP’s conservative wing.

Republican Virginians have been pandering for votes from the Virginia GLBT voters for the past six months while the Redstate geeks pretend not to be interested.

GOPLet’s not ignore the GOP ballot in Virginia in 2004 when they kicked “The Gays” in the teeth with a ballot that yanked any dismal idea of “partnership” rights between two people of the same sex. That included those business labels like “LLC” partnerships and applying for fishing licenses for trout steams where you and your “partner” needed to buy some bait.

These are the same Republicans who are now groveling themselves in front of GLBT groups happily identifying themselves with acronyms that identify themselves as GOP shit and spit.

Redstate contributors must have ate the lead-paint when they were kids. They’re only about five months behind the curve-ball on what’s going on in Virginia.

In 10 months, they’ll be running another surprise piece on how stunned they are that Virginia elected Mark Warner to US Senate and has become the first official Southern State to turn Blue since 1964.

The Dems already own the Commonwealth’s Senate, and they elected a Dem to succeed Warner as Governor. Virgnians kicked out George Allen in exchange for anti-Iraqi warFruitFly 6 Blue-Dog Jim Webb. Now when they have state senators happily bragging to be called a “RINO”, you know it’s going to be bad.

Really bad…. Psss! …Really, really bad.

“I” is for “Impeachment”

Okay, I think I’ve figured out what happened.

KucinichCongressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH 10th) Presidential hopeful and Druidic High Priest, entered HR Bill 333 back in April 2007. Everybody snickered and giggle behind his back because as you already know, Kucinich smokes marijuana and gets his Tarot read by famous Hollywood moonbats like Shirley MacLain. Only problem is that High Priestess Nancy Pilosi already told everybody that Impeaching any of the Bush Cartel was off the table. (Pilosi is far too liberal and way too interested in working on the super-secret “Gay Agenda” to be dealing on an Impeachment case.)

Yesterday comes around and Nancy’s sex-slave Steny Hoyer (D-MD 5th) holds the floor and up comes HR Bill 333. Hoyer doesn’t want to deal with this bill and so he puts out the vote to “table it”. In other words: “Let’s ignore this bill like we did in New Orleans.” Now before he can call for a vote to “table”Hippie Chick the bill, it has to be read to the full House or Representatives. Out comes a House clerk who’s name was Willow or something and she reads the Articles of Impeachment for Dick “Darth Vader” Cheney.

Now, the dope-smoker ‘s articles of Impeachment are official in the Congressional records. Steny Hoyer thanked Willow and then told the full House that his “Safe Word” was “butt pimple”. He said that it was important that before any sexual activity began during the vote, that everybody knew what everybody else’s “safe word” was. He then repeated his own: “butt pimple”.

The Dems aren’t really interested in the bill; it reaks of mugwort and deep-fried eye-of-newt. Besides, someone had written the bill on hemp paper. The only ones that are interested in the bill are Dems that have their own Druid high priestesses and Dark Arts professors.

The Republicans are definitely not interested in Impeaching their beloved Darth Vader; so being protected on all sides by The Empires’ Storm Troopers, they immediately began voting “Hell YEAH-Let’s Table It”.

viagraHouse Minority leader John Boehner (R-OH 8th) took some erectile dysfunction tablets made by Pfizer, Inc. and all of a sudden, he had an epiphany: Here was a golden opportunity embarrass High Priestess Pilosi! If they voted against tabling it and let the bill come to the floor for a full debate…

“That little pill creates some mighty big results!” he thought. Here was a brilliant opportunity to make Pilosi look stupid in front of the United States and her “life-partner”!!

With an erection that looked like he had a decent sized pumpkin in his drawers, Boehner began pushing Storm Troopers out of his way and saying; “Get the hell out of my way! I’m John Boehner and I work for the good of The Empire!”. He tagged all of his colleagues by saying “Let’s make fun of Pilosi…this’ll be great. Let’s all vote against tabling this stupid bill and we’ll be able to debate it and make Pilosi look like a Jack-Ass! Get it?! She’s a Democrat so we can make her look like a Jack-Ass!!”donkey

All of the Republicans laughed and said; “Yeah, we get it. That’s really funny…”jackass”. Now what are we supposed to do again?”

Boehner had a very difficult time keeping their attention with that medication “problem” down in his trousers banging into them. But eventually he managed to get his message through. All of the Republicans finally understood and said; “Ooohhh! SNAP!! The Emperor and Darth Vader will be so pleased! You’re right! We can make fun of Pilosi and that stupid Dennis Kucinich too!”

One Republican said to him; “Have you had that…ehm..bulge for more than four hours?” I don’t know: It could have been a physician who asked that, but more than likely it was just another Republican closet-case.

Anyway, Steny left the sacrificial virgin on his pulpit for 15 minutes…and then a little longer…and then a little longer. And he began to realize that not only did he have to take a pee-break, but that the Republicans were are changing their votes from “Yeah Let’s Table It” to “No Way Man, Let’s Have a Debate About It!!”. Steny didn’t know what to think: On one hand, it’d take over a half hour to get all of his leather gear off so he could pee — on the other, he didn’t understand why the Republicans were being such idiots for changing the votes to “NO” and then flipping him the bird.

Steny decided to risk it and take a pee-break and to let the Republicans have all the time they needed. After an hour, the full House had their votes cast and so Steney pushed the sacrificed virgin off his pulpit and called the vote.

170 – 242

(WTOP.com and the NY Times reports that the 162 – 251, but who cares what they have to say anyway.) That means, 170 members said “Yeah..Let’s scrap Kucinich’s HR 333” and 242 who said; “Let’s not table it – Let’s debate it so we can make fun of Nancy Pilosi!!! “ewok

“We’re going to help them out, to explain themselves,” said Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX 32nd) while pulling the head off an adolescent Ewok. “We’re going to give them their day in court.”

Hoyers’ gavel, a labrys stolen from the High Priestess’ office, banged on the pulpit: “So moved. We’ll open it up to debate the Impeachment.”

Then, reality hit the Republicans like a Jedi knight’s lightsaber through their brain-pans: “What did we just do?!?! Huh?” Someone from some redneck state whimpered nervously; “Did we just vote to open the debate on the Impeachment of Darth Vader?!”

storm trooperStorm Troopers closed ranks around all of them, Vader immediately grabbed his shotgun and a little bit of pee ran up John Boehner’s leg. The Emperor sent a fleet of Incom T-65 X-Wing star fighters to hover over the House of Representatives and signed another $30 Billion contract with Boba Fett.

Sunshine, a communal-spouse of Harry Waxman (D-CA 30th) suddenly placed her blunt down gingerly and said: “Why don’t we push this off to Committee?!”

Everybody looked up to Steny Hoyer thinking: “Good idea!Love animate Let’s push it off to committee!” Patrick McHenry (R-NC 10th) winked at Hoyer and had a Congressional page pass a note up to him that said: “Your leather outfit is turning me on…call me Daddie. Love, Patty-Pat-Pat.”

Steny Hoyer grabbed another virgin, this time a brunette, sacrificed her to in the name of the Goddess Morrigan and held the vote: “Shall We Push Kucinich’s HR 333 Off To Committee?!”

The House voted again. This time:

218 194

(WTOP.com got it figured out that time.) Now the bill is in the hands of John “Big Eagle Winds” Conyers (D-MI 14th) who’s head of the House Judiciary And All Things Wicca.boehner crying

John Boehner began crying (again) and sobbing: “The Emperor will be so upset with me!! Oh goodness, I just love this country so much… He…he.. He’s just going to kill my family and he’ll boil my head and eat it for lunch!!” Storm Troopers carried Boehner off while he was wailing and begging for mercy.

peaceloveThe bill was originally co-sponsored by House Judiciary Committe members: Tammy (Dew Rain) Baldwin (D-WI 2nd) Keith (Moonbeam) Ellison (D-MN 5th), Sheila (Rainbow) Jackson-Lee (D-TX 18th), Steve (Sunflower) Cohn (D-TN 9th), Maxine (Twilight) Waters (D-CA 35th) and Hank (Sunlight) Johnson (D-GA 4th), none of whom have passed a drug test since the 2nd Grade. Now that they have more power to truly Impeach the Vader, none of them show any interest today.

Representative Conyers, an former rabid hater of the Empire, the Emperor and Darth Vader, whimped out and has decided that he’s too busy to be bothered by all of this Impeachment Bru-Ha-Ha. His sweat lodge found Judiciary spokeswiccan named “Oak Would” (who was in the middle of “The Mysts of Avalon”) and sent her out to say this:

“The committee has a very busy agenda – over the next two weeks, we hope to pass a FISA bill, to vote on contempt of Congress citations, pass legislation on prisoner re-entry, court security and a variety of other very important items. We were surprised that the minority was so ready to move forward with consideration of a matter of such complexity as impeaching the Vice President. The Chairman will discuss today’s vote with the committee members but it would seem evident that the committee staff should continue to consider, as a preliminary matter, the many abuses of this Administration, including the Vice President.” – House Judiciary Committee Spokeswoman wiccan.FruitFly 6

High Priestess Nancy Pilosi, the first Speaker of the House to create a blog off the Priestess’ coven, has absolutely NOTHING listed about HR Bill 333.

Whew!! Washington can be such a crazy place!!! Thank the Goddess I had Kagro X @ DailyKos to help me figure all that out!!

Fruit Fly News: The Imprecatory Prayer Meeting

FFNGood evening and welcome to Fruit Fly News, my name is Frizzie McBee.

In tonight’s news, we’ll take a closer look at the recent announcement of First Twin, Jenna Bush’s recent engagement! Is Ms. Bush pregnant? And will she be giving birth by Immaculate Conception?!

But first we feel compelled to thank each on of you loyal FruitGlenn Beck Fly News listeners for your time and your interest. We are just six people shy of having a larger listening audience than Glenn Beck on CNN!! With Paula Zahn’s show being eliminated, rumors have it that Fruit Fly News is being considered a possible candidate for replacement. And we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you.

Girls gone wild?! …Or girls hot for Kucinich! That’s what Hyla Matthews thinks in her video debut. You’ve all seen the hot and sexy girl who’s got a crush on Presidential-hopeful Barak Obama. Then there was “Hott4Hill“, a viral video of Taryn Southern who has a lesbian crush on Hillary Clinton. Never short of ideas; “Debate 08: Obama Girl vs Giuliani Girl“came out. It’s a girl-on-girl action video where Obama’s girl notes Giuliana one time married his cousin and Giuliani girl would make wife #4. Hyla Matthews has now upped the ante with her view new video “I wanna have sex with Kucinich“.

The quality of the video is terrible. The budget to make the film was the equivalent to price of a Baby Ruth bar, but it topples the other videos in creativity and humor. Hyla cuts out the Kucinich’s face (alegedly from the television screen while watching a political ad) and she straps his face to the head of a ventriloquist’s dummy. Stop-short video shows things like hot-dogs being inserted into donuts and gas-pump nozzles being shoved into gas tanks and the rest is filled with Hyla dancing with the dummy. The video finishes with the mannequin having sex with her, complete with noises such as the zipper of his trousers and her asking it: “Have you put it in yet?” The doll climbs off of her, apparently insulted by the penis-size reference, and you can’t help notice he’s wearing Superman underwear.

Ultimate Fighting CharacterWhile we’re talking about erotica, the Pentagon has turned the United States Military into a giant sized “Jesus Machine” complete with “Tough-Man Meetings”. Under the heading “Entertainment”, the USO has been sponsoring D-List actors such as Stephen Baldwin and a massive production called “Operation Straight Up Tour”.

While gays and lesbians are considered a distraction to our troops if allowed to serve in the armed forces: “Straight up” penises are never distracted when they attend the tour that calls for a “crusade in Iraq”. The Bush Administration condemns Muslim jihaadists. But an American jihaad comes with a video game called ” Left Behind, Eternal Forces” (a video game where the players are in a time after the rapture) and t-shirts with homoerotic artwork painted on the front.

“We feel the forces of heaven have encouraged us to perform multiple crusades that will sweep through this war torn region,” OSU declares on its website about its planned trip to Iraq. “We’ll hold the only religious crusade of its size in the dangerous land of Iraq.”

D-List actor Stephen Baldwin is heavily involved with thisBarney Rubble American jihaad in Iraq. As a cultural counselor to President Bush, missionary to American young people and a rising star within the leadership of the American (Evangelical) jihaad, Baldwin writes in his book:

“God has called me to go and make disciples of the youth of America. That is what I am going to try to do, and if you try to stop me I am going to break your face.”

Reports everywhere have noted Baldwin no longer wears his “What Would Jesus Do?” bracelet.

The American jihaad hasn’t stopped at violence and homoerotic art. They’ve also crossed the threshold of “Ultimate Christian Taboo” by calling for an “Imprecatory Prayer” against a group called “Americans United For Separation of Church and State“.

Imprecatory Prayer is a difficult thing to understand. But, perhaps it’s best defined this way:

Imprecatory prayer is a last resort appeal to GodFox Prayer for justice. The so called ‘curses’ are simply the just penalty called for in the scriptures for the alleged crime. Imprecatory prayer is an appeal to the court of divine justice (1) for protection and (2) the appropriate punishment for the criminals.

Imprecatory Prayer, for Christians is highly taboo because the prayer itself has an extremely caustic boomerang effect:

Your personal adversary is not always God’s enemy: If a neighbor backs over your mail box time after time, you may be angry and extremely frustrated. But you are dealing with a neighbor, not an enemy of God.

Meet Rev. Wiley Drake. Former Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC); current pastor of First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, California. He’s also the current darkhorse candidate for president of the SBC. Reverend Drake has called for an Imprecatory Prayer to those who support Americans United, and especially communications staffers Joe Conn and Jeremy Leaming; and executive director Barry Lynn.

Jesus Truck“Reverend Drake” has become so hateful, that he is willing to call upon God the Father to put a curse on another American. And with patriotism like that, who needs another monster truck in their back-yard?

But what was the reason for such a horrible and “religiously dangerous” thing?

Revenge!

AU and the communications staffers had filed a complaint with the IRS that Reverend Wiley Drake had been endorsing Republican Presidential-hopefule Mike Huckabee and using his church stationary to do it. Rather than follow the law and separate his church from state activities, Reverend Drake has called for Imprecatory Prayer because these people won’t let him campaign for Mike Huckabee using his powerful church as a lobbying group.

Jesus’ General has written a piece on this in an open letter to Reverend Wiley Drake. In it, he makes an interesting observation:

I also understand that you are an Ambassador for the Presidential Prayer Team, and as such, I assume you are employing the power of prayer to assist Huckabee. But have you considered how much more his campaign could be helped by imprecatory prayer.

Imagine how voters would react to a hairless, toothless, boil infested Mitt Romney. And why stop there, why not ask God to make Mitt farthaggard the horrible loudly and scratch himself during interviews.

Since Reverend Drake is indeed a leader of the Presidential Prayer Team, it’s safe to assume that he’s also buying gay-porn, smoking crack and regularly having sex with a 49 year old male prostitute.

Finally tonight; Presidential prostitution! Presidential First Twin, Jenna Bush is finally getting married! While she’s Babara Bush Drunkslutted her way from bars in Austin, Texas all the way to Johannesburg, South Africa, she’s finally putting her plastic beer cup down and sleeping with only one dick from now on.

Rumors abound that she’s pregnant already. But this impossible knowing that Jenna Bush has been in rehab along with her sister Barbara and her three cousins, Jebby, George “P” and Nichole.

Aunt Sassy has been blogging the Bush grandchildren where she writes from her condo:

I was sitting at my desk, wearing my red cotton bikini briefs, reading an article on AmericaBlog about Jenna dry-humping her boyfriend in a drunken state at Zucchabar last weekend when I decided that it was time to take action! The Bush grandchildren are O.O.C. (out of control)!

In my rage, I went about securing permits, hiring social workers, and procuring plenty of Lithium as I prepared to open the first “Bush-Child Halfway House.”

The blog reads like a train-wreck on benzadrine, but who could blame her? Rehabbing Bush grand-children would qualify for saint hood! Aunt Sassy’s blog entry on Monday, the first week:

…While storming through the parlor, I witnessed Jenna clinking the ice in her glass at him and slurring out “Georgie, be a dear and refresh my Jack and G … and not so much icey-ice this time.” Much to hertexas children chagrin, he was busy doing runway briefings with Lauren. “No, you fat-assed loser! I said pivot on 7, NOT 8. Now let’s start from the top … 5, 6, 7, 8!”

Reliable sources such as Wonkette have all but confirmed Jenna is indeed pregnant and this child is at high risk of alcohol fetal syndrome.

But the question remains: “Who is this republican baby’s father?!” Some have speculated that it was Elvis Presley who impregnated the Bush Princess. Others have speculated that it was really Prince Frederick von Anhalt, the German husband to Zsa Zsa Gabor who also claimed to be the father of Anna Nichole Smith’s baby. Or perhaps we’re going through a whole new chapter in our civilization and Jenna is giving birth to ourFFN Lord and Savior!”

I thank you for tuning into The Fruit Fly News. Please join us again next week when we’ll discuss the absence of Republicans at the Log Cabin Presidential Debates. My name is Frizzie McBee. Good night.

Logo was a Go-Go

Markos Moulitsas found a link and is paying attention to the gay-vote.

The study this spring by San Francisco-based Community Marketing Inc. found that an eye-popping 92.5% of gay men reported that they voted in the 2004 presidential race, and almost 84% said they cast ballots in the 2006 midterm election. Among lesbians, the results were almost as impressive; nearly 91% said they voted in 2004; for the midterm, the figure was 78%.

By comparsion, the Washington-based Committee for the Study of the American Electorate put the turnout for all Americans eligible to vote at about 61% in 2004 and roughly 40% in 2006.

Gay people not only vote en-mass, but they hold advertising clout far and above their hetero counter-parts. Check out Advertising Age magazine’s article on corporations producing two television commercials that are identical – except for the sexual orientation material.
And while we’re talking about the Gay Vote, it’s worth noting what “The Gays” are looking at this weekend: The Visible Vote; Logo Television.

The format of the Logo Webpage is pretty…confusing. ButRachel Maddow before I note anything on this debate, there is the matter of dealing with Air America radio-celeb; Rachel Maddow. Maddow’s “Campaign Asylum” found on YouTube does an excellent job of a.) congradulating the candidates for doing the debate b.) noting that it’s pretty ridiculous to include Margaret Carlson as one of the moderators. First, she’s not gay, second she has connections with one of the candidates (whether present or not) and third… She wasn’t that good.

The other three moderators were gay. Luckily for the entire debate. Joe Solmonese, Executive Director of the Human Rights Campaign, Melissa Ethridge and Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post. Very good! Respected and outstanding GLBT citizens of the community.

Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Dish made an intelligent observation on the Logo debates. Arguably, a majority of the debate focused on gay marriage, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and Defense of Marriage, Andrew noted the thought:

My own sense, however, is that we haven’t moved the Democrats much in many years. They need and want gay money, so they will talk to us. But none of the leading candidates supports our civil equality in marriage, the Ground Zero of the movement. And, more frustrating, none will say why.

If you’re for civil unions but not civil marriage, you need an argument. One is simply the semantic one that your commitment to the heterosexual meaning of the word trumps your understanding that gays are also family members and deserve not to be shunted into a “separate-but-equal” institution.

But none of them will admit that.

The other answer is that they do support equality in marriage but fear losing votes if they publicly say so. As president, of course, they have virtually no role in the matter – it’s for the states. But they’re scared of the Rove machine – still. So they can’t say that either. So they all seem illogical.

Well said!

You’d have to go to Logo’s website to see each of the candidates interviews on your own. I emailed the folks at WordPress to ask them why I can’t use the links Logo provided to link the video in my blog here. What I got was from Barry at WordPress who said:

Hi,That is correct — untrusted 3rd party javascript is not allowed for security purposes.

Why thanks Barry (@) wordpress dot com. I’m sure you’re sleeping comfortably knowing none of those big scarey “homo-scripts” from Logo television aren’t going to be terrorzing your computer server farm anytime soon.

Sheeshe. Dude! Lighten up man! It’s Logo Tee-Vee! You think they’re somehow block you and your servers because you’re “untrusted” 3rd party?!

The jerk.

Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM)

Gov Bill RichardsonWhat a train-wreck. I have secretly kept my “Underdog” hopes for Richardson because he has a pedigree that blows way everybody else on the Dem ticket. He’s been a US Senator, US Congressman, an Ambassador and he’s a Governor! But Melissa Ethridge asked him, in relation to his usage of the “maricon” comment on the Don Imus program in 2006, if he saw homosexuality being a choice.

Melissa: “Do you think homosexuality is a choice?”

Richardson: It is a choice. Of course!

Melissa: “Maybe you misunderstand the question. Do you think that I was born this way? <short pause> Or do you think…right around the sixth grade or so I decided to start liking girls?”

Richardson: <looking like he ate the last chocolate chip cookie in a room full of starving orphans> Look. I’m not a scientist. I don’t know all of the science behind all of this. I’m just not a scientist!

Phphp… C’mone!

Joe.My.God‘s comment was brilliant. In relating to Richardson’s blunder on the Logo Presidential, JMG said:

“To gays and lesbians, flubbing the choice-vs.-nature question is like botching the answer to “What’s one plus one?”

Note to [New Mexico Governor] Richardson’s current and former gay staffers and supporters: Do an intervention — and get him an Ambien — before he implodes again.”

Pam, over at Pam’s House Blend caught Richardson on the radio two days after his mega-sized gaffe where he said this:

“I’d flown all night from New Hampshire. I screwed up, I made a mistake. This is an issue you’re born with, it’s a not a choice, it’s not a lifestyle. I didn’t understand the question…there was an implication that politics intervenes with science. And I always love the word “choice”, I am for freedom of choice, I have in my health care plan a choice where everyone can choose their health care plan and I always see it as a golden word. I didn’t think it through what Melissa was asking me.”

Pam has an MP3 of him saying this – click here.

The emphasis is mine (of course). I heard in today’s news that Tommy Thompson (R-WI) has just dropped out of the Republican bid for President. I can only hope that Richardson does the same thing soon.

UPDATE: Queerty has an interview with Governor Richardson shortly after the Logo Debates that’s well worth the read.  I personally think he’s thrown the gay vote.  He’s fallen to the same category as Mike Gravel, Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo.

He’s unelectable.

US Senator John Edwards (D-NC)

John EdwardsEdwards showed his weak under-belly by admitting is complete lack of knowledge of “the Gays”. It’s become apparent that John Edwards sees gay people as he sees black people, brown people or as he sees those who are less fortunate.

In an audience of GLBT people both in the studio as well as in the ethereal airwaves satellite relay dishes everywhere, Senator John Edwards explained that he had listened to US Senator Barak Obama (D-IL) who was on the panel earlier and he agreed. He went on to point out that his religious views disagreed with gay marriage but he agreed with equality for everybody. And so he jumped for the opportunity for a cop-out by promising that since he’s a strong supporter of a separated church and state – he won’t let his religious views interfere with his Presidential veto-pen.

You don’t believe me? Click here and watch this.

Pathetic. You think?

I’d rather vote for his wife Elizabeth for President.

US Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)

Hillary ClintonI love Hillary. I don’t love another eight four years of Clinton v. GOP wars.

She’s pro gay marriage. She’s against Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (even though she helped draft it up), she’s against DOMA (even though she was involved in drafting it up) and she’s against the Bush Iraq Oil War (even though she voted for it and continues to make up excuses for voting for it).

Whatever she said…

I’m a huge supporter of a presidential/vice-presidential team where the President works to fix the foreign relations debacle in this country and the Vice-President to fix the domestic debacle. So if someone picks Hillary as the Veep – I’m there buddy! 100%. She’d be fantastic on the Domestic stuff.

(Former) US Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK)

Mike GravelSenator Gravel cracks me up. And he is the best candidate on the floor. He understands the American people and he understands the issues that are facing “The Gays”. But I’m not going to vote for him, so let’s move along.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)

Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)One of the brightest men on the panel. The man, in my understanding of his politics, completely and totally understands the human condition as well as the gay condition in America. I was stunned by his answers:

On gay marriage…are you for “gay marriage”.

Kucinich: Of course I’m for gay marriage. Gay marriage is nothing other than two adults who are in love with each other. The best quality of the human soul is the ability to love. Nothing more beautiful, nothing more passionate than a human to be able to love another human being.

Well, okay I adlibbed. You really should check out his answers on Logo.

Post Editing Notation: Congressman Kucinich’s office was raided after his appearance on Logo television.

Dennis Kucinich’s presidential campaign office in Cleveland was vandalized early this morning after the congressman appeared with other Democratic candidates on a nationally televised forum on gay rights. Kucinich spokesman Andy Juniewicz said an unknown object was thrown through a plate glass window sometime after 12:30 a.m., when campaign staffers closed down the office. Juniewicz did not have a dollar estimate of the damage, and said he didn’t know whether it was connected with Kucinich’s appearance at the forum sponsored by the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign. “We will leave it to the Cleveland Police Department to investigate and see what they come up with,” Juniewicz said.

Oh thank goodness! The Royal Republicans were right again! There really is no connection between Hate Crimes and homosexuality!!

Senator Barak Obama (D-IL)

Sen Barak Obama

The panelists were cruel to Senator Obama, in my opinion. The jumped in on the idea of comparing Gay/Lesbian rights and issues to those related to African American rights and issues during the civil rights movement. I thought their comparison was racist and completely unwarranted.

But, Obama was stellar! He spoke strongly about how speeches given in African-American church congregations and condemned them for homophobia.

I have to give Andrew Sullivan the last word on this “debate”. He’s right – it wasn’t a “debate”, it was in fact, an “interview”. But Sullivan did not fail to notice the Republicans being strangely silent to ever talk to “the Gays” even when there’s a Log Cabin Republican member standing four feet away from them. Sullivan noted:

The other aspect of the “debate” was the fact that no Republican candidates are prepared to make a similar case to gay voters. Gays apparently don’t exist for the GOP: a constituency they won’t touch, let alone appeal to. That’s bad for gays, forMe Republicans and for the country. But it’s the party Rove and Bush built: a party whose foundations are exclusionary and divisive.

And I would have to agree with him on that. It truly is a shame that the Republicans still can not bring themselves to recognized that gays exist, or that the Log Cabin Republicans exist.
