David Corn, 2006: “[The list] includes nine chiefs of staffs, two press secretaries, and two directors of communications—is that (if it’s acucurate) it shows that some of the religious right’s favorite representatives and senators have gay staffers helping them advance their political careers and agendas”
Joseph McCarthy, 1950: “A list of 205 people…who, nevertheless, are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department.”
Gay Republicans may be the first target of this gay purging (using “The List” compiled by the Gay Left), but they won’t be the last. This is the just the leading edge of serious damage to gays in the workplace beginning in the Federal government.
But since they are Republican staffers, it is okay to demonize and root them out, right?
