More cool election stuff from the Sunshine State:
If we’re to believe the identity politics of the Left, we should all support Donna Milo because she’s transgendered.
I have a feeling, though, she’d disagree:
“I’m an American. I make my way on the basis of ability. My triumphs are based on my abilities, not on a label or a crutch,” said Milo, a Miami Planning Advisory Board member running to replace U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, one of the House’s most liberal Democrats.
In fact, judging by her campaign website, she’s a pretty fundamental conservative: Taxes, Regulation, Health Care, Foreign Policy, Energy Policy. Sure she’s got zero chance in such a Left-leaning district (Obama 63%), but she deserves our support. Not because she’s transgendered, but because of her stands on the issues.
Refreshing, I think, that her “Issues” page doesn’t even list LGBTETC. topics. How’s that for progressive!
