    Like the rest of the Righties in here, you blew right past the point...why am I not surprised?

    The openly gay atheist was used as a metaphor for "honest politician". Records indicate your Republican Gay is in the closet--hence, a liar. And almost all atheist politician pretend to worship god--also liars.

    From your perspective, I can see that you believe that. From my perspective, the opposite applies, although my respect for both republicans and democrats is diminishing over time regardless of their views. It increasingly seems that politicians point to their polar opposite and declare, "At least I'm not that!"

    The possibilities are endless.
    And yet hopelessly narrow.

    Sorry, I had to stop with "The openly gay atheist was used as a metaphor for 'honest politician.'"

    Who could be more honest than someone seeking office in this backassward American society while freely admitting they are Gay and Atheist?

He wasn't delivering a mandate, he was simply stating simple fact when it comes to the New York State electorate. The Tea Party (rather, the politicians that run under the banner of the TP but are generally right-wing whackadoodles) has been roundly rejected in New York.
    And yet again, why did he have to make such a dividing speech? Do you think his speech brought New Yorkers together or furthered the rift that is already there? He has a lot to learn about leadership and the realization there will ALWAYS be people that disagree with you. His speech did nothing but divide people, not unite them.

    You can try and justify, twist, or whatever you want with his speech. The fact remains his speech was a dividing speech and not a uniting speech.

    How would you define "extreme Democrats"? What are their policies and beliefs?

    In truth your point is glaringly obvious and yet you still felt the need to explain it more than once. We get it, it's juvenile, it's amusing, but also a good example of how the left handles their vetting process.

    The left has a lot fewer men caught soliciting sex from other men while advocating an anti gay agenda.

    When it comes to a Rightie commenting about the "lefty" lack of vetting, glass houses comes to mind.

    I never said it was or wasn't. I didn't justify anything, and I'm getting really ****ing sick of people accusing me of saying things I never said.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
