Openly gay Irish presidential candidate David Norris dropped out of the race last month when the media started reporting that he had once written a letter asking the Israeli court for clemency against an alleged statutory rapist. But now that he’s seen a poll suggesting that he could actually win the presidency, Norris has reportedly decided to re-join the race.
There’s no better quality in a presidential candidate than making important decisions based entirely on approval ratings. But snarkiness aside, we do hope he wins, namely because openly gay heads of state totally rawk.
