My response to this flimsy press release, asked for by the Georgetown Times:

As usual, the Georgetown Times bites on a press release from a person who has nothing better to do than produce them. What's reprehensible is the gutter attack on Vida Miller on an issue four years old. I suppose the GOP has nothing else to offer besides the past, seeing the Pledge to America. Stay classy, Tom. As for my comments, they are my opinions. How else do you explain voting to not let two people who love each other marry - no matter the gender. Again, as if the man/woman marriage concept is so perfect. Just ask our Republican Gov. Mark Sanford.

Here's a GOP Chairman obsessed with press releases that attack, point fingers and offer no solutions to the working or unemployed of this county. No, he'd rather stir up emotions and generate fear for a vote. It's tasteless. That's why I asked Republican candidate Kevin Ryan to denounce the ad, stick to issues of today and argue them with integrity. We'll see how the so-called "moral values"  party allows their candidate to respond.

The people who ought to apologize are Tom Swatzel and the Georgetown GOP. They fired the first salvo, calling on homophobes to "lesbian" Linda Ketner and trying to paint her lesbianism as a bad thing.

I suppose your thinking leads you to believe you'll win hands down. Keep your focus on me - a blogger, Tom. That's just where I want you.

Not supporting gay marriage shows homophobia?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
