John McCain’s Chief of Staff Outed

Monday, September 22, 2008

Mike Rogers at BlogACTIVE has outed John McCain’s Chief of Staff, Mark Buse, and awarded him with the coveted Roy Cohen Award!

Mark Buse is not just the Chief of Staff of any homophobic United States Senator: he is helping one of the most homophobic Senators — John McCain, get elected president. Consider McCain’s position on the following LGTB issues:

• Voted Against the Matthew Shepard Hates Crimes Act three times
• Opposes ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
• Opposes relationship recognition of any kind for same-sex couples
• Opposes ENDA and cast the deciding vote against it in the United States Senate
• Has never co-sponsored Ryan White or ETHA, and voted for a Jesse Helms strategy to remove funding aimed at protecting the community from HIV/AIDS
• Opposes the right of same-sex couples to adopt
• Senator McCain voted to confirm President Bush’s judicial nominees who had taken anti-LGBT positions such as Judge William Pryor and he has pointed to ultra conservative Justice Samuel Alito as a role model for future Supreme Court appointments
• Supports discriminatory state constitutional amendments that would define marriage as between a man and a woman, including the proposed amendments in California, Florida and Arizona

Good job, Mike Rogers, for outing Mark Buse. He’s a total and complete douchebag.

    Any self respecting homo who would work for the election of a man who wishes to deny rights to gays and lesbians everywhere should have his willy fall off. What a munt.

  2. Rachel says:

    How can any self-respecting member of the gay community work for McCoot? This is ridiculous. Buse should have his head examined. He’s clearly made a deal with the Devil. There’s always one or two who surface to help the fascists.

  3. HelenWheels says:

    Another self-hating gay man caught. Jeebus how many are there in that party? Actually, it makes sense that someone who can’t come out of the closet, or who hates himself for being gay would join the party that also reviles gay people.

    My favorite parts were “Ray Cohen Award” and “munt” (LOL!!!)

    oooops I thought you sent me an email about another tool- as Rick Davis was outed today for his Freddie Fannie 2 Million dollar check…now I see you have unveiled another tool….what a weasel…

  5. Joe in Colorado says:

    A few years ago, there was a book titled, “Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust.” I don’t recall the author. Anyway, the thrust of the book refuted the belief that those who carried out the genocide of Jews were primarily members of the SS or the Nazi party. In fact, the book exposed the role of ordinary German citizens who oversaw the concentration camps, slave labor camps, genocidal army units. People like McCain’s Chief of Staff, fall into the same category. Shameless and pathetic.

  6. Aunt Peg says:

    Joe in Colorado – I know that book and I remember the controversy it caused when it was published.

    The similarities are clear and undeniable.

    Buse should be ashamed of himself for working for McCain. I guess he thinks if McCain makes it all the way to the WH, he will become the next Karl Rove.

  7. Fran says:

    The whole republican mindset is toxic, caustic, and thinks hate is a family value.


    Gotta work to keep them & their hateful agenda out.

  8. Randy Arroyo says:

    Sounds like Buse is a Log Cabin Republican, yes? I have never been able to comprehend these guys as long as I’ve had any political awareness.

  9. JollyRoger says:

    BlogActive does such good work for the community. Exposing Gopper hypocrites is a truly noble calling.

    Mark Buse is a moron to work for McCain. If he thinks McCain will respect his relationship with his partner, Buse is naive. McCain (and Palin) have demonstrated contempt for the gay community.

  12. libhomo says:

    I wonder if the GOP base knows about this.

  13. libhomo says:

    If Buse really is gay, we should all boycott him for sex, dating, and socializing. We don’t need to have anything to do with people who promote discrimination and violence against our people.

  14. Bill Perdue says:

    Good choice.

    But the same could be said of all those who support a bigot pandering, pigheaded opponent of same sex marriage like Obama. Or those who try to hide the fact that Obama won’t even allow our name to be mentioned in his platform lest it frighten the bigots he’s wooing.

    It could be said of anyone in the same party with Barney Frank, who gutted ENDA, or Pelosi and Reid who dumped the Matthew Shepard hate Crimes act in the garbage.

    It could also be said of anyone who votes for a party that overwhelmingly voted for DOMA and DADT and refuses to repeal them.

    I’m referring to Democrats. The LCR types have no monopoly on hypocrisy and lack of common sense.

    And if you need proof just examine their idolatry of Bill Clinton, who not only supported and happily signed DOMA but went on the air to boast about it to get the votes of bigots in 1996. That’s the same Clinton who signed DADT which codified military bigotry. He’s a hustling opportunist whose only allegiance is to himself.

    Obama is a Clinton clone and McCain is a Bush clone.

    Vote for the union led and financed Labor Party or vote Socialist or Communist, or write in some one like Abu-Jamal Mumia for president or just stay home (except where things like Prop 8 are on the ballot). But don’t vote for either of the lesser idiots on the ballot.

  15. You shouldn’t do that to him,it would make things harder for him. For example Clarence Thomas a black man, who a conservative had a hard time and later…Oops my bad, I forgot we were talking about unreasonable people.As Michael Baisden says,…PUT HIM ON BLAST!!!!Why should tho only blacks,gays and feminist that get over be Republiklans.
