or, perhaps, even just last week.
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 .
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 For historical reference see Winston Churchill election of 1945 and President George H.W. Bush in 1992.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?
