Log Cabin Republicans Have Shit for Brains

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

When the Log Cabin Republicans endorsed John McCain and Sarah Palin, it forever solidified their position as one of the most extreme and bizarre political action groups in America.

LCR president Patrick Sammon issued this ringing endorsement of of Sarah Palin:

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin can help Sen. McCain win this election by appealing to independent and young voters. She’s a mainstream Republican who will unite the Party and serve John McCain well as Vice President. Gov. Palin is an inclusive Republican who will help Sen. McCain appeal to gay and lesbian voters.

Too bad Patrick Sammon has shit for brains rendering him incapable of vetting Palin’s position on such a salient LGBT issue as domestic partner benefits for same-sex couples working in state government.

Here’s what Sarah Palin told NEWSWEEK in an August, 2007 interview, when she was asked to explain her veto of a bill that would’ve banned domestic partner benefits for LGBT couples. It’s hardly a statement of inclusiveness:

NEWSWEEK: And do you have a position on that? Would you like to see it? Do you care?:
PALIN: I would vote to further define the definition of marriage as it pertains to benefits —yes, I would.
NEWSWEEK: That is, not extend benefits to same-sex couples?
PALIN: Correct. And if it took an amendment to our constitution, I would go there.

So the Log Cabin Republicans have enthusiastically endorsed the Republican ticket despite the fact the vice presidential portion of the ticket supports a Constitutional amendment to make gay and lesbian Alaskans second class citizens.

    I thought the guy in the YouTube was CNN’s John King?

    In any event, I will never understand the concept of the ‘gay republican,” anymore than I can understand a ‘Jewish Nazi’ or a ‘Black Klansman.’

    These people are sick. Diseased and belong in a mental ward.

    I forget the LCR is still around. Then they open their mouths and issue another stupid endorsement and I’m reminded of them and their irrelevancy.

    How frightening is that? So these dumb bastards would rather cuddle up to their money than protect their partners and human rights.
    They’d be happy to be sent to the concentration camps as long as they get a Republican tax break.

  4. Jim says:

    By the way, why do these people always look like Moonies? Classically “medicated” in appearance and just a touch “off planet.”

    I dated this guy for a few weeks during college who was a Log Cabin Republican. I had no idea how he saw the world because he did such a good job of hiding his values. I still remember being at dinner with him (the last time I saw him) when he let loose this racist diatribe about Mexicans stealing US jobs. As a Mexican-American, I’d heard it all before but it was still a stunner to hear it from a fellow gay man.

  6. LCR = Loathsome Campy Republicans

  7. you really must love being hated if you are a member of LCR —

    Unlike this guy’s closing statement, I do NOT look forward to hearing more from Palin.

  10. I have said it before and I will say it again. These are the self loathing guys who are hooking up with Larry Craig and practicing their “wide stance” in rest rooms all over the country.

    I doubt Sammon believed a word he said. He’s just a partisan hack spewing spin.

    And this is why I call them the “Uncle Tom’s Log Cabin Club.”

    On the bright side, I think this is the first time that they have actually endorsed a GOP ticket.
