Gay conservative group reaches out to BachmannAs gay-issue advocacy groups increase pressure on Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann over her views about homosexuality, the gay conservative group GOProud is requesting a meeting with the Republican presidential candidate to possibly lend a hand.
We're considering supporting Colonel Sanders!
In an interview with Politico, GOProud chairman Christopher Barron said he was "concerned" and "troubled" by Bachmann's record and past statements about gay issues, but would not "be part of any 'war against Michele Bachmann.'"GOProud officials generally stress that sending a Republican to the White House trumps a candidate's view on one issue.
Sure, she's a cat, but she's gonna cut our taxes!
You know, I could see taking that position if the one issue where you disagree with a candidate was, say, monetary policy, or drug enforcement, or anything other than whether you personally deserve to be treated as a second-class citizen. How is that not a deal-breaker? It's like saying "my wife and I agree on almost everything except for the matter of her fucking other men. I'm certainly not going to let one little difference spoil our otherwise perfect marriage."
**NOTE** The preceding example has absolutely NOTHING to do with my marriage. My wife is awesome like you wouldn't believe. I was just using that as an example of an equally pathetic thing that someone, not me, could theoretically say.
GOProud's website lists 10 legislative priorities, and only one--the opposition to a federal marriage amendment--concerns gay rights. The other nine focus on issues that could appear on any conservative group's website, such as lower taxes, support for Second Amendment rights and repealing the 2010 health care law.
Wow! It's so important to these guys to prevent people from having medical care that they would make common cause with someone who views them as undeserving of equal rights. They would rather have discrimination against them enshrined into law than have insurance companies not be able to screw people out of coverage based on pre-existing conditions. Unbelievable! What the hell is wrong with these guys?
And the winner for most ironically named organization is. . .
