Butte hole: Montana GOP needs, doesn't care to find patch

by Jeremy Hooper

MT-GOPThe AP is reminding all Americans of a truly startling reality about the Montana state Republican Party: That they still have a call to criminalize homosexuality in the "crime" section of the official party platform:

Montana GOP policy: Make homosexuality illegal [AP via Yahoo]

While the AP does quote some like state Sen. John Brueggeman (R-Polson) who wish to see the mean-spirited, legally-insignificant wording removed, the seemingly more significant sentiment comes from state GOP executive director Bowen Greenwood, who says that the matter has never even come up for discussion. Never even come up. Not once. In over twelve years. Just slipped the mind.

The obvious response: THEN. BRING. IT. UP, EXECUTIVE. DIRECTOR! The state party literally calls for gays' hands to be bound and thrown into a cop car -- nobody's binding your own lips and hands from putting a word and deed to a remedy!
