As I pack up and hit the road for the move to Charlotte, NC this morning, I thought it might be fun to post a short quiz for everyone to take.
The quiz is called “Gay Lefty Moonbat or Log Cabin Prez?” Below are quotes from either radical Gay Leftist “reporter” Rex Wockner or Patrick Guerriero, Log Cabin (Republican) President. As difficult as it may be, try to determine who said what….
Ready? Set? Go!
A – “Yes, it’s ugly. Yes, the theocrats control the [Republican] party apparatus. Yes, the President has been a humongous disappointment, particularly his support for the Federal Marriage Amendment.”
B – “There are days when I wonder if I will be able to stay sane these next four years. Not only is this truth-challenged primate our president, but 51 percent of the voters I walk by on the street reelected him. I just can’t come to peace with that. Three months later I still hurt, and I still cringe when I see his smirk on television.”
C – “I’m concerned about the misinformation around weapons of mass destruction. I want us to figure out an exit strategy that doesn’t leave Iraq in a civil war and leave terrorists to use that experience to bolster their activity around the world.”
D – “Hey, whatever it takes to get rid of the Bushies is A-OK with me. I just don’t understand why Bush’s outright lying about Saddam Hussein’s nonexistent “weapons of mass destruction” — and, um, his starting a WAR in order to seize or wipe out these nonexistent weapons isn’t enough reason to bring down the administration.”
E – “It would be easy for folks to run away from the battle going on in the Republican Party right now — a party that is too often controlled by theocrats.”
F – “This current administration is very beholden to that subgroup of Republicans, so it kind of puts all gay Republicans in a tighter bind than they might have been in under a less-religious-right-co-opted administration, like Bush number one, when it wasn’t like this so much.”
Not as easy as you might have think given one of these men is supposed to be a Republican. The answers are:
Guerriero: A, C, and E; Wocker: B, D, and F
Recently, Guerriero has been on what appears to be a public relations blitz of the Gay Leftist Media. First this nauseating puff piece in the current issue of The Advocate. (Dan commented on the Advocate piece earlier in the week).
Not only did it expose The Advocate for its Gay Left Echo Chamber/Non-News Credentials… (What? No questioning of Patrick about the million-dollar defamation lawsuit from one of Log Cabin’s former high officials??)… but it cemented Patrick’s total abdication of Log Cabin’s ability to create positive change from within the Republican Party.
As my fellow blogger Dan says, calling Patrick a Republican is like putting a wig on a trucker and calling him a drag queen.
Oh, but I’m far from done…..
If the Advocate’s smoke-up-the-ass article isn’t enough to convince you that there’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing at Log Cabin, the “interview” of Patrick at 365gay.com by none other than Rex Wockner a couple days later, should seal the deal.
Twice Wocker commented how he and Patrick were alike. Here’s one of Rex’s gems:
“Well, look, you and I are not that different. I’m liberal on social issues and moderate on economic issues. I feel overtaxed. I haven’t voted for a Republican since 1980, and why is that? I guess social issues matter.”
Patrick crows these days about how he isn’t hanging around in GOP circles anymore. These are Patrick’s own words from the Advocate piece:
“I don’t need to be invited to every GOP cocktail party. And yes, I’ve been invited to fewer GOP cocktail parties since the decision. So be it.”
Excuse me, then what the hell are you doing? I also have it on very good authority that two important Republican Members of Congress that Log Cabin repeatedly cites as “friends” have never even heard of Patrick or former Political Director Chris Barron…. and they certainly have never seen them. Why? Because those GOP Members are at GOP cocktail parties. That’s where politics and influencing is done.
Patrick’s own words this week jarringly contradict with an article from February 2005 that Log Cabin currently still has on its own website. (Gay Conservatives To Work With GOP – ABC News)
The Log Cabin Republicans, a lobbying group for gay Republicans, is regrouping after an election proved a national consensus against gay marriage has broadened its legislative goals this year. The group is reaching out to conservative organizations and vowing to be a partner with the Bush administration.
If the Guerriero’s Moonbat Leftist Talking Points rhetoric of late is being a “partner” with the Bush administration…. Well, I’d hate to see an enemy. The fact is Guerriero and the Log Cabin board have sold out the very foundation of Log Cabin in order to become the new darling of the Gay Left. More proof is that Log Cabin’s largest single contributor has a long history of personally supporting the most radical of the liberals in the Democrat Party, including borderline socialist the late Senator Paul Wellstone. (More on the “follow the money” story in the next few days.)
My only question now is….. where is the home for true gay Republicans? Not an organization run by a liberal from Massachusetts. The United States as a whole has rejected that option twice in my lifetime.
