Video: Uniting the party Signorile style

by Jeremy Hooper

Longtime gay activist Michelangeleo Signorile is lots of things. Mealy-mouthed ain't one of 'em:

A Rough Day on the Show [Signorile]
(H/t: PHB)

Your thoughts

Signorile is right on. I just dont get the logic of people willing to vote for McCain because he has more experience when he stands for something completely different than Hillary and Obama. I have friends who were major Hillary supporters who wont vote for Obama and I just don't get it. They say he doesn't have enough experience but after 8 years of Bush I really dont think that matters.

Here's what I have to say about that, reproduced from my reply to a commenter on my blog, at http://breaktheterror.wordpress.com/2008/06/05/two-messages-for-hillary-clinton-supporters-threatening-to-vote-for-john-mccain/#comments

"Your desire to vote for John McCain in order to stick it to the Democratic party is curious to me, because your candidate, Hillary Clinton is endorsing Barack Obama, because she understands the stakes of this election. So you’re voting for John McCain…why?

Because the best way to stick it to the Democratic Party is to vote for a known quantity who will work against everything Hillary Clinton believes in? Because the best way to stick it to the Democratic Party is to support the candidate who will guarantee that the 47 million uninsured in this nation remain uninsured? Because the best way to stick it to the Democratic Party is to support a candidate whose views on Iraq and foreign policy in general are myopic at best and dangerous at worst? Because the best way to stick it to the Democratic Party is to support a candidate who, despite his heroic service to the country, and who should know better, doesn’t find our troops’ sacrifices to be worthy of a fully-funded college education? Because the best way to stick it to the Democratic Party is to support the candidate who sees our troops dying in Iraq as collateral in a conflict the rest of the thinking world understands to be unworthy of their sacrifices?

My brother is in the military and serves in that part of the world. Perhaps you should check with some of the families who have lost loved ones in this conflict; perhaps you should check in with the families of the veterans of this conflict who have come back alive, yet find themselves with untreated PTSD and other brain injuries, or without arms or legs.

Perhaps then you might be able to straighten out your priorities."
