Exactly. In this latest case, if they weren't so repressed about gays, Craig wouldn't have to be trolling airport bathrooms to have a good time.

Craig tapped some guy's foot and the officer immediately arrested him. That's hardly proof that he was looking for good times in a bathroom if we consider that he's been called out on having sex with other men several times since the 1980s which I would consider far more convincing proof of his sexuality. I mean come on, tap a guy on the foot vs. firsthand accounts from his male partners? What's the better evidence here.

Now the part that gets to me is that the GOP is so homophobic that based on his tapping a guy's foot in an airport restroom, they're ready to trow him under the next bus despite over 20 years of his loyal service to the GOP's grand masters. What does that say about the GOP? That they're a bunch of shortsighted, incompetent, cowardly old men prone to instant hysterics over the slightest problem?

Boy that last sentance was redundant...

yeah, they throw Craig under the bus but Vitter, who admitted using hookers to cheat on his wife and who also ran on a "family values"/"Defender of the snactity of marriage", gets....? a slap on the wrist.
odd isn't it? i guess the message republicans can take from the leadership is "Cheat on your wife with another woman; another man and you're toast.".
their banner at the next GOP convention should say what they really feel: "No gays tolerated."

That's why I've never understood the Log Cabin Republicans; can't they tell how much the regular GOP despises them? BTW, that name, are they insinuating that Lincoln was gay?

yes, they're insinuating he was gay. he did, in fact, share a bed with another man before he got married, but that was a commonon practice back then and there's no evidence of any hanky panky. it beat sleeping on the floor and it saved on rent. lots of guys did it back then.
and i'm baffled by gay republicanns as well, since gays are clearly the whipping boy of the party. when the outcome of the election's in doubt, demonize gays. the republican party has operated that way for years, so it's beyond me why gays would claim to be in a party who openly demonizes them. i can understand being gay and having traditional conservative beliefs (smaller gov't, decreased spending, etc.), but modern republicans are as far away from traditional conservatism as socialists.

The real sad thing is that the "regular GOP" actually is pretty tolerant and accepting of gays.  They know darn well that people in their party are homosexuals, their aides, their campaign managers, their kids, some of them.  Yes, even Cheney.  But there is no chance that the Republican Party is going to take an open platform of acceptance because it would alienate the religious base.  It's not so much hypocrisy as it is schizophrenia.  Probably not a lot of Volokh readers frequenting this thread, (I'm not one of them myself), but that's pretty much Dale Carpenter's opinion.  It is a strategic division of public and private opinion that is practically pathological.

Two men in suits appear on screen. Their faces are blurred.

MAN #1
It’s hard when you’re holding hands with someone at a prayer breakfast and wondering, am I feeling more than the power of **bleep**?

Cut to another pair of men, also dressed in suits.

MAN #3
The guys I’d meet randomly would find out I’m a Republican and want to get into it about Bush. I’d tell them, hey, if I wanted to get into bush, I’d be home with my wife.

MAN #2
Yeah, I didn't hire you to be the speaker, I hired you to be the whip!

Cut to the GOP-Harmony spokesman.

SPOKESMAN

Some of the categories float by: Denial, Self-Loathing, Committee Memberships, Inseam

Cut back to #3 and #4, holding hands.

MAN #4
It’s not easy to find a man who’s into tax cuts, nation building, and bare-backing. (raises his partner’s hand) But I did!

MAN #3
I'd look like a real hypocrite if I used condoms—I’m chair of the Presidential Commission on Abstinence!

SPOKESMAN
With GOP-Harmony, you don’t have to worry about messy exposés or embarrassing mug shots. We rigorously check out all of our members, weeding out officers, agents, reporters, bloggers….

Now I never have to ask, “Are you a cop or from The New York Times?”

NANCY MAN
Unless we’re role-playing! (laughs)

SPOKESMAN
And you have our GOP-Harmony Guarantee—none of the men you’ll meet are gay!

Cut back to the first two men.

MAN #2
When people ask me if I’m gay, I ask them, “If I was gay, would I be voting against gay marriage?”

MAN #1
Exactly! I just want to have sex with guys, not a relationship with them.

MAN #2
Thank you, GOP-Harmony!

Cut to the Spokesman.

story_was_bogus.html

[.....]

The bogus victim, Princeton junior Francisco Nava, reportedly a politics major from Texas, had suggested in an interview with The Daily Princetonian student newspaper Saturday that he had been assaulted because of his involvement in a morally conservative student group, the Anscombe Society, which advocates pre-marital abstinence and opposes gay marriage, among other things.

Township police said in a statement Monday that Nava, 23, admitted to them that he fabricated both the assault and threatening e-mails he received prior to the incident.

By: billw @ 6:38 AM - PST  

Kris Kobach, a former counsel to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft who is currently the chairman of the Kansas GOP, sent out an email on Thur entitled “Kansas Republican Party Year in Review” in which he brags of voter caging. Blue Tide Rising has the goods:

… Kris Kobach, chairman of the Kansas GOP, sent out a self-congratulatory litany of accomplishments. Among them was one particularly eye-catching item:

“To date, the Kansas GOP has identified and caged more voters in the last 11 months than the previous two years!” […]

Slate.com has the best comprehensive write-up on how the Republican Party employs caging techniques to suppress the votes of the poor, the deployed, and college students. (You know, likely Democratic voters.)

Did we mention it’s illegal? And that Kris Kobach is proud to be doing it?

Since Kris Kobach can’t expand his own party or force his own Party’s members to support his candidates he’s shamelessly trying to keep Democrats from voting instead. This is the stratagem of a desperate and shrinking party.

Someone needs to ask Kris Kobach which voters he’s caging and how he’s doing it. Someone like a newspaper editor or perhaps a Grand Jury. … (more)

More on Kris Kobach here and here (He apparently suffers from an advanced case of Lou Dobbs disease). Depending on what methods are being used in Kobach’s admitted voter caging scheme, it may very well be illegal, but hardly surprising. Voter suppression through caging lists has become a standard part of the Republican playbook to steal elections for some time now. In Sept McClatchy detailed current Republican voter caging efforts underway in Florida and Ohio to “impede Democratic-leaning minorities from voting in 2008,” and back in July PBS NOW took a look at the Republican Party’s voter caging plan “designed to keep Democrats from voting, allegedly by targeting people based on their race and ethnicity.” Watch that video here.

 

"Did we mention it’s illegal? And that Kris Kobach is proud to be doing it?"

That's the Republican Party in a nutshell.

think of the local elks club, with less booze and more money. ...or is it more booze and less clothing? ew, i hope not.

Huckabee goes a-huntin’

Republican Mike Huckabee took his turn Wednesday, going on a pheasant hunt in Osceola, Iowa during which the Arkansas governor made it clear he is no stranger to the great outdoors.

Huckabee’s team brought back three pheasants — one of which the candidate claimed he personally shot — and promised they’d be “cleaned and eaten.”

Huckabee, who polls show continues to hold onto his lead in Iowa eight days before the state’s caucuses — also joked the trip could serve as a metaphorical campaign message. “Don’t get in my way,” he said while pointing to the three dead birds.

“This is what happens…You vote for me, you live. You don’t…there you go.”

The CNN anchor says he has a “morbid” sense of humor….These hunting outings are pretty ridiculous and Huck certainly doesn’t disappoint. I know he thinks he’s very funny, but it’s really a bit much…Can someone explain to me why hunting is some sort of prerequisite for the office of the president and vice president? Did Mike shoot anybody in the face? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself… (h/t rasta)

 

 

Hahahahahah. Death threats are soooooooo funny. 

 

 

 

 

NOT.

Jesus ** funky chicken ** Christ on a pogo-stick! And we thought we were just joking!:

By: Logan Murphy @ 5:30 PM - PST  

John posted a story from The Huckster’s hunting trip earlier this week, and now details of a disturbing incident that occurred that day are starting to come out. Apparently, Huckabee was asked by one of the reporters following him that day why he didn’t invite ** funky chicken ** Cheney along for the hunting trip and he joked, because he wanted to “survive all the way through this.” But, near the end of the hunt, as a pheasant got up and flew toward the onlooking reporters, Huckabee and his fellow hunters turned toward them, aimed and fired their guns right over their heads — a cardinal sin of hunting.

Photo and more via The Washington Post:

Around 9:30 a.m., before the rest of the candidates were set to spend the day crisscrossing the Hawkeye State, Huckabee took an hour and a half to hunt pheasant in Osceola, about an hour’s drive from Des Moines.

The former Arkansas governor, who has surprised the rest of GOP field with his front-runner status here, was the first candidate to hold an event the day after Christmas. Flanked by about a dozen reporters, he wore a microphone from CNN as he went shooting, with Dude, his 3-year-old bird dog, and Chip Saltzman, his campaign manager, at his side.

In the first 30 minutes, Huckabee, Saltzman and a friend shot three birds. Their last shot flew over the heads of reporters, one of whom cried out: “Oh my God! Oh my God! Don’t shoot. This is traumatizing.” Read on…

As someone who almost lost a close family member in a hunting accident, this kind of mindless and ignorant behavior enrages me. In what can only be considered a huge gaffe by Huckabee, abandoning proper safety procedures and putting the lives of others at risk — just to show off in front of reporters — shows a profound lack of judgment on his part. This man wants to be our president and have control over our nuclear weapons. Don’t we get enough of this kind of behavior from our current president?
