HRC: The victim has become the perpetrator

by Jeremy Hooper

200801291734As you might have heard, the McCain campaign ran "robo-calls" yesterday in Florida, in which they decried Mitt Romney's supposed gay rights support (even using the far right code words "special rights" to describe the gay rights that Mitt supposedly backed).  Well, that slimy tactic has drawn the ire of the Human Rights Campaign's Joe Solmonese, who today issued this statement:

It’s ironic that Sen. John McCain is using the same tactics that George Bush used against him in 2000; surreptiously trying to exploit anti-gay prejudice for votes,” ... “…So much for John McCain being above that.

It's unclear if McCain will (A) be inspired by Solmonese's statement, realize he's quickly becoming everything we once thought he opposed, and start working to create a new tone for his campaign, or (B) keep whipping upon the gays, as he thinks there's still plenty of gas left in that disgusting GOP gravy train.  Though considering this is presidential politics, a situation that now seems to be as far removed from humanity as Amy Winehouse is detached from sobriety, we wouldn't hold our breath for the former.

For shame, Senator McCain.

Your thoughts

Just a thought about LGBTIQ folks and the Republican Party:I really do not understand, or comprehend how any rationale person in "our community" would ever vote for any Republican candidate for any office in this country?
Its like attempting to commit suicide by stabbing yourself in the heart, or cutting your own throat!
