    Pretty Boy John Edwards has been quoted in a new book as saying of gays that he’s "not comfortable around those people" - where is the liberal media and the gay rights groups on this?

    If any of the Republican Presidental candidates had said this it would be another feeding frenzy for the PC Police



    Edwards "Not Comfortable" with Gays According to New Book

    Presidential hopeful Senator John Edwards has been quoted in a new book as saying of gays that he’s "not comfortable around those people."

    Edwards, currently in the running for the Democratic nomination for the 2008 Presidential election, was quoted in a new book by Bob Shrum, a Democratic strategist, according to an article in today’s Washington Post. Reporting on the Post story, Washington Blade Online blogger and Managing Editor Kevin Naff quotes Shrum as asking Edwards, "What is your position, Mr. Edwards, on gay rights?"

    According to Shrum’s book, Edwards, who at the time of the question was running for a seat in the U. S. Senate in 1998’s midterm elections, answered, "I’m not comfortable around those people."

    Much like you sorrow over the death of Rev Falwell, libs will always show their true colors towards those who disagree with them

    While they lecture the rest of us on how to be more tolerant, understanding, and compassionate - libs NEVER allow those traits to stand in their way when they slime those on the right

    I am completely tolerant of Rush. I think he should do as much oxy as he likes. I just think that when a guy preaches that white collar drug users should all be sent up river to the big house to do hard time, that he should walk the walk and not just talk the talk. don't you?

    what standard do you hold Rush to? Do you hold him to the standard he, himself, set for junkies? Do you think that junkies need to be incarcerated?
