Ah Yes, Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear…

or, perhaps, even just last week. 

Remember?

AFA spokeshater Bryan Fischer was giddy with excitement today over the resignation of gay Romney spokesman Richard Grenell, Right Wing Watch reports, calling it a “huge win” for the “pro-family” community .

So…

It was just last week that many (if not all) of the same people who are now praising Obama for ‘giving in’ (for lack of a better term) on same-sex marriage  to Gay Marriage, Inc., were ridiculing Mitt the Flip for giving in to the christianist right on the Grenell de facto firing?

James ‘perpetual Sling Blade impersonation’ Carville has issues, but he isn’t, well, actually Sling Blade.  It might be worthwhile to listen to what he has to say regarding the ongoing 2012 campaign:

A long time ago a great three-time governor of Louisiana, Earl Long, said about Jimmie Davis, the two-time not very good governor of Louisiana, “You couldn’t wake up Jimmie Davis with an earthquake.”

As I go around the country and see various Democrats and talk to them on the phone, honestly I’m beginning to think that we have become the party of Jimmie Davis.

My message is simple: WTFU. Translated — wake the you-know-what up, there is an earthquake.

Newsflash: Nothing is in the bag. Nothing can be taken for granted. Everybody from the precinct door-knocker, to the Chicago high command, to the White House, to the halls of Congress, to the Senate and House committees, to congressional leadership, here is a simple message: If we don’t get on the offense, reconnect with the American people, talk about how the middle class is in a struggle for its very existence, hold the Republicans accountable and fight like the dickens, we are going to lose.

You can shoot five Bin Ladens, you can save 10,000 banks and 20 car companies, even pass the most sweeping legislation in modern American history; if people don’t think that you are connected to their lives and are fighting for their interests they will vote your tush out of office in a nano-second. For historical reference see Winston Churchill election of 1945 and President George H.W. Bush in 1992.

Let me do some editing on that last paragraph, James:

You can shoot five Bin Ladens, you can save 10,000 banks and 20 car companies, even pass the most sweeping legislation in modern American history, even go farther than any president has on same-sex marriage; if people don’t think that you are connected to their lives and are fighting for their interests they will vote your tush out of office in a nano-second. For historical reference see Winston Churchill election of 1945 and President George H.W. Bush in 1992.

Now I pose a question: Assuming that President Obama’s in-the-wake-of-the-North-Carolina-amendment-passing endorsement of same-sex marriage does tip the scale against him in November and we end up with President Romney and three more christianist Supreme Court justices, who among Gay, Inc. will accept the blame for not being able to wait until after the election to force the issue?

    This does all come down to whether lgbt issues remain wedge issues. It’s clear from the EEOC decision that they aren’t for lgbt people (in this case -specifically trans people) and employment protections. Marriage is surely a closer call.

    But – that’s why the President is a leader. And a gutsy one at that. I’d rather support him on this and trust his judgement. On many or our issues – they’re our wedge issues. We’ve made that much progress.

    Regarding Mittens:

    From Lawrence O’Donnell’s show last evening. Re: Marriage is between one man & one woman. History is apparently quite malleable.

    Nia-Malika Henderson:

    >> i’m struck by when i hear him say as he did in massachusetts when i hear him say, i agree with 3,000 years of recorded history. and he says marriage is an institution between a man and a woman. this is a man whose great grandfather thought marriage was an institution between a man and five women, as was legal when he began those marriages and so i’m starting to wonder if the soft response may have something to do with that issue that exists in romney ‘s family’s distant past , which “the washington post ” has covered and detailed rather extensively, and because “the washington post ” coverage and notice of that that might be involved in their muted response?

    …and trust his judgement

    Lets just hope you’re right.

  3. "Vic" says:

    And yet you trannies are pushing a trans bathroom bill in NY in an election year, when the state senate could flip to either party. I guess the trannies in NY should have read this post.

    “Kat” Rose: surrounded by cats, filled with hypocrisy.

    • Katrina Rose says:

      Amtrak must have been slow yesterday.

    • Kathy says:

      Only an idiot thinks NY is a swing state. McCain got 36% in 2008. Clearly – you’ve never been involved in electoral politics.

      Just for the record – the 2012 swing states are considered by most sane people to be:

      “The New York Times list for 2012 includes Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

      The USA Today/Gallup list has the same nine states as the New York Times, with the addition of New Mexico, North Carolina, and Michigan.

      The Politico list excludes Michigan and calls New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin “soft” swing states.

      The Real Clear Politics projected electoral map adds Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina, and Montana to the list of potential swing states.”

      Jesus even lackluster candidate John Kerry trounced Bush in NY – Bush only got 40%.

      Hey – but as it’s Friday – I’ll have what your smoking! It must be some pretty weird shit.

      • "Vic" says:

        What are you, an idiot? No, it isn’t a swing state in the Presidential elections, but within state government, the senate is very much up for grabs. The lives of poor people, students, African Americans, Latinos, and (real) women living in the state will be affected by which party controls the chamber. They will all be hurt because trannies insisted that senators take up the vital issue of tranny pooping venues. Selfish, selfish trannies.

    • valeriekeefe says:

      A bill with 78% support. One that any Republican will suffer for if they oppose. What’s your problem Vic? Willful blindness? Just a failure to recognize how 78% distributes between red and blue districts compared to 52%?

  4. "Vic" says:

    Suuure. 78%. Right. You should have no problem then. I guess if you can believe that you’re a chick, you’ll believe anything.

    • valeriekeefe says:

      http://prideagenda.blogspot.ca/2008/03/poll-new-yorkers-overwhelmingly-support.html

      Suck on it, Vic. At least this time you won’t get toxic shock from a cheap polymer.

      • "Vic" says:

        Forgive me if i don’t suck it. It’s way too. I thought you had that thing cut off.

        So 4 years ago the Pride Agenda buys itself a sham poll with 97 percent of respondents saying that they will definitely or probably vote in the next election and 71 percent saying that it is already illegal to discriminate against trannies. And this is the poll you want me to believe. Here’s a wacky question: do you have a single poll replicating this result that wasn’t paid for by an “LGBT” organization. A single poll from a reputable polling group. Gallup? Quinnipiac? Anything?

        But hey, if this poll is accurate, then all your worries are over. 67 percent of Repubs support trans bathroom rights, apparently. So your victory is in the bag!

      • Heather R. says:

        I wonder how many Americans would approve of what gay men get up to in public bathrooms, if we took a poll. No matter how carefully you handle your poll, you’d be taking it in the shorts! Tee Hee!
