We ALL Laugh at Mitt Romney’s Nonsense…

and rightly so.

In a 1994 letter to the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts that was obtained way back when by the Boston Globe that has been mostly forgotten, then-Senate candidate Romney said:

As a result of our discussions and other interactions with gay and lesbian voters across the state, I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent.

Yet only some of us laugh at this nonsense:

Outlines: The concept of trans issues … are they in partnership just like with Black issues might be, or are they integral to the agency? ENDA is just one example of how that manifests itself.

[Elizabeth] Birch: I think that the Human Rights Campaign has done as much if not more on transgender issues than most other national [ gay and lesbian ] organizations. If you really look at the actual work.

Yes, one was prospective and the other retrospective, but keep something else in mind: The Birch interview was published in September1999, less than five years after the Romney letter (which was dated Oct. 6, 1994.) 

I’m just remindin’….
