One of these people favors giving handjobs to Democrats. The other favors fisting them. But both agree on one thing: Rep. Patrick Murphy, the Iraq war vet and Pennsylvania Democrat who spearheaded the House’s DADT repeal effort, deserves your vote next month as he faces off against Republican former Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, who lost his seat to Patrick in 2006. (The pair
held their last debate last night.)
Cam: You’re smarter than that Cam. John Aravosis, Pam Spaulding and GetEQUAL have engaged in a strategy called “embarrass Democrats” for the past nine months. Their childish strategy is based on the idea that slapping our friends is how you hold them “accountable.” It has only helped Republicans.
The fact is Obama hasn’t been in office two years. Yet many in our community didn’t even wait a year before
attacking him. I’m not saying he did enough, but he does need the Congress to accomplish anything. He doesn’t have 60 votes in the Senate. So, instead of spending the last two years trying to change that reality, we had part of the community trying to devalue his Presidency and ALL Democrats. The sad part is that much of it worked.
Republicans benefited from the aggression of GetEQUAL, not us.
@ Robin McGehee: $500 reward? I will give anyone that can demonstrate that your organization GetEQUAL is effective $50,000. Just show how “embarrassing or humiliating Democrats” helps us and I will pay $50,000. We are going to get our asses kicked on November 2nd and your little band of idiots is partly to blame. You have helped Republicans and hurt all of us. I want to win, not complain. All you have is bitching to the choir – it isn’t helpful. If someone can demonstrate how it is, I will pay.
Let’s not stop there – if you have an idea to help create our equality I will pay up to $100 million. We have been paying organizations to ‘work for us” for too long. I want solutions.
And, you “offer” Robin – fuck you. You make $100,000 a year and you haven’t accomplished anything.
