Gay GOP Leader Calls Palin “Inclusive”


Patrick Sammon, leader of the same-sex loving Log Cabin Republicans, released the following statement about Sarah Palin, who John McCain’s picked as his running mate:

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin can help Sen. McCain win this election by appealing to independent and young voters. She’s a mainstream Republican who will unite the Party and serve John McCain well as Vice President. Gov. Palin is an inclusive Republican who will help Sen. McCain appeal to gay and lesbian voters.

The Cabinites’ website also directs viewers to 365Gay’s report on the veep selection. Why? Because of this specific line: “Palin has a scant record on LGBT rights but is considered a moderate.”

      Oh she’s a repub “moderate” on GLBT issues! That means she just wants us dead, not necessarily vivisected. Yay Miss Congeniality!

      Interesting choice. I had never heard of her. If she is attacked on lack of experience, the Democrats will be highlighting Obama’s own lack of experience. And she may peel off some disgruntled women voters.

      But few people choose who to vote for on the basis of the VP candidate.

      Please, the Log Cabin Republicans would call Benito Mussolini inclusive.

      “Yes, there have been some arrests for sodomy. And a little torture here and there. But the statues Il Duce has commissioned are very homoerotic.”

      Can we exclude Log Cabin Republicans from the GLBT fold? I move that our movement now be called GLBT ex-Log Cabin “self loathing,I’ll sell out my soul for a tax break,see you in the lion pits my fellow christians” republicans.

      Any seconds?

      DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB. She’s not even close to someone that would allow GLBT to support McCain.

      I might also add that a 71 year old man, average age of male death 74 means she could potentially be our president. Unfortunately 1.5 yrs as Alaska Governor doesn’t give anyone the contacts, ideas, etc to be the U.S.A’s president.

      Yes, Steven, when the Stalinists like yourself take over the gay movement.

      I can see Sarah Palin carved into Mount Rushmore already. Obama just got Punk’d by Bambi in Designer Glasses! The log-swallowers must be salivating for her beef curtain politics! Too bad if you are a woman, gay, an immigrant, poor, black, believe in hope or are named Barack!

      I’m starting drugs!

      Mind you that inclusive in the world of the LCRs means “doesn’t want to put gays in internment camps.”

      Are you people still seriously talking about this? McCain just handed the election to the Democrats on a silver platter.

      Game over.

      “Gay GOP Leader Calls Palin “Inclusive””

      Also says economy is sound, the DOJ has fair-hiring practices, and that the world is flat.
