    Michelangelo Signorile: The High Cost of Political Gay-Bashing




    Perry isn't going to gay bash his way to the White House, the GOP will lose the social battle. I don't believe gays should openly serve but I wouldn't use that belief as a political weapon to draw the retard vote that is largely nonexistent.

    80% of the country disagrees with both you and Perry.

    Perry, in his pathetic desperation, was trying to carve out some of the radical, religious right wing support that goes mostly to Frothy Santorum and Bat-Shit crazy Bachmann. He failed.

    He did succeed in making one of the most parodied videos in recent history. The "Brokeback Mountain" jacket was the kicker. :lol:

    Perry hasn't got much of a chance. He's trying to make up for his missteps by pandering to the majority. This tactic will fail because he's unacceptable for other reasons. It will just give the gay advocates an excuse to say he lost because of gay bashing.

    It shouldn't surprise anyone that you wouldn't stand for your beliefs.

    Time to wake up Rip Van Winkle. The "majority" don't think gays are icky and bash worthy anymore. The GnOP has lost one of their three "G"s. :lol:

    He lost because he's a moron and too much like Bush (without the intellect and humility of Bush) :lol:

    I'm in the military and have my reasons why gays shouldn't openly serve and my reasons are valid, I don't think the brass should force troops to accept a lifestyle they may deem sinful and wrong, basically whatever they do they should keep it to themselves but shit, the military has all kinds of people in it that shouldn't belong. Perry has no reason to bash gays other than to get retard votes from the far right evangelicals

    Everywhere gay "rights" has come up for a vote, it loses, that includes ultra liberal California.

    There are adjusted and weighted polls that get paid to reflect a different result, but those polls do not survive a vote.
