Maddow on GOP homophobia flip-flopping: “absolute bull”

I can’t believe this nonsense about Thorne-Begland being blocked from becoming a judge by Republicans because he’s gay. Impeccable credentials, bipartisan support, and a waxing public support for gays, and yet these backward-looking Republicans are entrenching themselves in their homophobia.

Only now that they’ve realized their anti-gay opinions are anathema to public discourse, they’re lying about it!

I suppose this shouldn’t be a surprise.

    Absolutely it shouldn’t be a surprise, Jason. It always has been and always will be about the buttsecks. Social conservatives can NOT handle that buttsecks takes places between two men, that two guys could be giving each other the bone. That it even exists completely blows their minds, and makes them feel all weird and stuff.

    Naturally, some percentage of them are titillated by it, but refuse to admit to that. Instead, they just hire gay escorts and get their buttsecks that way.

    YEAH BUT GAY SEX DOESN’T WORK COZ *touches fingers together*

    I think maybe these people are just surprised that you CAN have sex with someone via the poop chute.

    You know, that last line Maddow said gives me some hope. If they really are becoming embarrassed of their position, maybe there’s hope for a change ?

    But according to Edwina Rogers, Republicans aren’t anti-gay! Clearly none of this has happened and Maddow is just making things up.

    It should also be noted that the Rethuglicans in the Virginia General Assembly spit in the eye of Governor McDonnell who appointed the gentleman. Of course, the governor is a very conservative Rethuglican but, apparently, they came into their calculations not at all.

    “I think maybe these people are just surprised that you CAN have sex with someone via the poop chute.”

    And that’s the only way they can think of how two men might have sex. There are plenty of others…

    @7 —

    At least the Clinton-hunters were clever. They established in asking the questions that only penile-vaginal intercourse would be (for the purposes of Clinton’s answer) defined as “sex”. They knew that if he said that he had had sex with “the woman in question” he would have perjured himself, but if he actually answered the question as defined (which he did) they’d be able to convince much of the public that he had perjured himself. Today’s GOP have decided that they don’t even need to go to the effort of setting up a weasel-word trap; now they just rely on the fact that the media will report their claims as entirely equivalent to those made on the basis of actual reality.
