Richard Socarides Is Thrilled Republicans Will Support The Gays But, Uh, Knows They Won’t

HEY U GUYZ!! Richard Socarides, firmly inserted in his war room at Equality Matters, thinks Republicans are totally seeing the light and starting to fall for the homosexuals. Pointing to useless people like Ken Mehlman and Laura Bush (and useful people like Ted Olson), Socarides says he’s a “glass half-full” person when it comes to Republicans getting on board with LGBTs. There might even be a Republican presidential candidate who supports gay marriage, though Richy is “not going to tell you who it is” (Fred Karger?). Except, uh, then he points to all the Republicans in the House that are going to make it “extremely unlikely in the next two years we’ll get any important gay rights legislation through Congress.” So I guess I’m not sure what he’s so excited about? Is it the opportunity to let Republicans off the hook?

      Just another branch of the whiners at Media Matters, whose credibility is worse than their polar opposites “News Busters”.

      Equality does matter, but this little ruse of progressive propaganda doesn’t.

      What a media whore this guy is! Wasn’t he just a few months ago mouthing off about Obama and the slow pace in repealing the very law he helped craft 17 years ago? Apparently we have short memories. Socarides is as relevant as an overused dish rag.

      @Yeah Right: What was untrue in this video? Any elected Repub come out in favor of marriage equality?

      At the RNC debate, all the disgusting troglodytes reiterated their stance against gays.
