    Nobody's ever accused Ensign of having a wide stance.

    Craig wasn't forced out because he was trying to hook up with somebody.  He was forced out because of the gay.  Republicans having sleazy personal lives is a tradition, as long as they're straight.  If they're not straight, there's no amount of 'virtue' that can compensate for that cardinal violation of the rules of modern Republicanism.  As evil and twisted as DeMint is, if he came out of the closet tomorrow, the Teapeople and the Republican party would both dump him so fast your head would spin.  Because no amount of being an evil, sadistic fucker would inoculate him against the fear of the gay.

    "...the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." RIP Senator. We miss you.

    •  Maybe this is how to counter J O'Keefe (0+ / 0-)

      Start sending folks around with hidden cameras catching Republicans doing something that could be construed as gay-friendly.
