    Re: Anti-gay lawmaker caught in Craigslist scandal

    You know, I frankly don't care about what sorta stuff politicians get up to in their spare time. I really don't. It seems to have no correlation with their leadership capabilities, based on history.

    But it is very strange that, while both sides have their scandals, for some reason when it's a Republican, it always winds up being someone who has been loud about their anti-gay beliefs, and yet gets caught having/seeking gay sex. Why is that?

    So what you are saying is a politician cannot publicly have one stance on an issue and personally have another? This would mean that politicians should never listen to the electorate, among other things. All you know is he is against SSM, which has exactly jack **** to do with this whole thing.

    Yeah, right. His position on SSM has nothing to do with his personal feelings. This story makes that crystal clear.

    His position on SSM has nothing to do with whether he thinks people should be able to see a male escort. Hint: he is not going to marry the escort.

    Sure it doesn't

    I'm sure he believes that trolling for gay hookers is good for his marriage

    He has come out against anything bad for marriage? You can document this?

    His opposition to SSM

    But I'm sure he think his trolling for gay hookers is good for his marriage. I'm sure his wife is thrilled

    Ok, slowing this down a bit: he did not try and marry the escort. Therefore what he did had nothing to do with his stance on SSM. Unless he opposes SSM and tried to marry some one of the same sex, he is not being a hypocrite. What arrangements he has with his wife neither you nor I know, nor is it any of our business.

    The sad part is that if this was a democrat you would be rushing to defend him.

    I'm sure his stance on SSM had nothing to do with his feelings about homosexuality. Wingnuts like him oppose SSM because...well...just because

    What's really sadi is your need to make a personal attack
