Finally: Sarah Palin Hates Gay Marriage

Sarah Palin wants to write a gay marriage ban into the US constitution. Wasn’t it just four years ago when gays and their quaint, old-fashioned desire to get married got thrown under the presidential election bus? Call me nostalgic, but I was waiting for the repeat in 2008. And, boy, did I have to wait. Sarah Palin pulled out this latest whammy just a couple of weeks before the election. She waited until the Log Cabin Republican gave her and her running-mate (John “That One” McCain) their endorsement. And after Sarah told us about her extremely diverse life that happened to include gay friends. Or was that one friend?

To be honest, I’m not sure if the Log Cabin Republicans made an endorsement this year or just breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, a Republican who doesn’t throw us under the bus! In 2004 they refused to issue an endorsement after Bush threw them and gay people in general to the wolves. After all, it was John McCain who once described a constitutional ban on gay marriage as “antithetical in every way to the core philosophy of Republicans.” That practically made John McCain a gay icon. Okay, a second-tier gay icon. But he was supposed to be cool. Heck, even Cher had trouble when Chastity came out. And the Log Cabin club has been so out there in opposition to Proposition 8: The effort to overturn the right to gay marriage in California.


The folks at the Log Cabin Republican Club better ask their dry cleaners how to get tread marks out of khakis. And they need to stay in the crosswalk and look both ways before crossing the street: Those Mavericks are crazy bus drivers.

Log Cabin Republicans are here.

    I sincerely hope PROP 8 fails miserably.

    BUT – if it DOES passes, is everyone prepared to spend another ba-zillion dollars on PR and possibly wait 20-30 years to “win” equality in CA?

    AND – if it does NOT pass, which state will we focus on next so we can spend another ba-zillion dollars to purchase civil rights?

    I know I am virtually alone here (except for Charles Merrill and his partner), but I think all of you are insane.

    Truly crazy….one step away from writing on the wall with your feces crazy.

    Because if ALL of us truly believed we WERE equal, we would not be so patient as tax-payers and U.S. citizens. We’d simply KNOW we ARE equal, and refuse to pay into a system that not only denies our familes civil marriage but doesn’t even acknowledge our existence (wait for the 2010 census).

    I’m 43, and I will NOT wait until I’m 73 for fair and equal treatment. It’s OK for the country at large to be ignorant, bigoted, mid-guided, and mid-informed. But that’s not my fault. So until people GROW THE F*CK UP and show my family the same “civil” respect heterosexually-identified families are given, I owe this country and the IRS nothing.

    How many times do I need to say this?
