Nitwit fringe freaks the Log Cabin Republicans—the gay group that supports the G.O.P.—has the audacity to condemn President Obama for coming out in support of same-sex marriage. Talk about burning yourself at the stake.
As USA Today suggests on today’s editorial page: “Under other circumstances, the president’s statement might have moved the group to respond with high praise. Gay marriage, is after all, a top Log Cabin goal. But in this political silly season, rational behavior is the first casualty.”
The group is calling out the Prez for his timing in support of civil rights for all Americans, saying, “That the president has chosen today to finally speak up for marriage equality is offensive and callous,” the day after North Carolina voters amended their state’s constitution to define marriage only as a union between one man and one woman.
Meanwhile, the Log Cabin clowns said nothing about Mitt Romney’s flip-flopping position that he not only opposes same-sex marriage, but civil unions—which he hammered home at a commencement address at Liberty University, the Jerry Falwell den of sin in my hometown of Lynchburg, Va.
USA Today adds, “The Log Cabin Republicans are outcasts within the GOP. The marital equality they seek is opposed by Romney and many right-wingers whose votes he hopes will help him defeat Obama in November. The gay and lesbian group seems bent on subjecting its members to an unyielding brand of political flagellation.
“It is apparently willing to pay any price, bear any burden and endure any insult to maintain a toehold in the GOP ranks—a political obsession that is as oxymoronic as a black joining the Ku Klux Klan, or a Jew becoming a follower of Hamas.” *
