Gay Republicans Go For Romney

The Log Cabin Republicans are as divided as ever over the GOP presidential candidate, but Mitt is their man reports The Advocate:

Log Cabin Republicans, the largest national group representing gay Republicans, announced its endorsement of Mitt Romney for president Tuesday, saying the decision shows, “We are Americans first.”

In a separate explanatory statement, however, the group also said its endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor was “qualified” and that it planned to be “most active” in working for its endorsed House and Senate candidates. And it dismissed Romney’s signed pledge to ban same-sex marriage via an amendment to the U.S. Constitution as an “empty promise.”

The group’s national board of directors said the decision to endorse came “after careful consideration and consultation with our members and chapters, as well as communication with Mitt Romney and his campaign team.” Questions about whether the Log Cabin Republicans would endorse the Romney-Ryan ticket have surrounded the group for months…

    These folks should google “cognitive dissonance”. Fuck me, at least vote for a libertarian candidate. Oh well, not like voting for president matters in this country anyway.

    Log Cabin Republicans are trying to become the first group to collectively qualify for an “Official Darwin Award”?

      To qualify for a Darwin award, one must remove one’s self entirely from the gene pool, either by death, or by the destruction of their reproductive organs.

      I remember that because our 8th grade teacher used to read us a case every day.

    “And [the Log Cabin Republicans] dismissed Romney’s signed pledge to ban same-sex marriage via an
    amendment to the U.S. Constitution as an ’empty promise.'”

    Hey, they’re right: Romney is full of empty promises.

    log cabin republicans
    is a cluster-phuck phrase
    with too many mixed metaphors

    phraseology putting logs, gays & republicans together
    is dangerously close to being anti-gay slurs

    & do they really have an influence on voters
    or is it just a way to meet other uptight queens
