Even GOProud’s Christopher Barron Can’t Find A Way To Excuse John McCain

Last night Ed Schultz welcomed GOProud’s Christopher Barron’s cheekbones in an attempt to defend Republican opposition to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. It went as to be expected, with Barron unable to refute the little point about how only a handful of GOP members voted to strike down repeal, no matter how much of a “tremendous thing for our country” the vote was. And as for that McCain guy? His behavior was a “disgrace.” It was “his Terri Schiavo moment.” (Also, is Mike Rogers getting younger?)

      In the end, GOPROUD is right that this wouldn’t have happened without Republican votes, and I am sure that GOPROUD and LRC had more influence on those Republican Senators than any other groups.

      Yet, everyone here will still lampoon those groups and the Republican party.

      Umm…firstly, as a hetero girl, I just have to say that that Goproud guy is seriously hot…Secondly, the reason DADT had to be repealed now, is because come January and the arrival of the 112th Congress (populated as it will be with those crazy Teabaggers), it would be dead as a doorknob. Thirdly, credit must be given where credit is due, the moderate Republicans; Collins, Snowe, Brown, Murkowski etc.( who are being called RINOs and being cursed by the fundamentalists of their party) should definitely be commended for taking a stand for equality. fourthly, Manchin will never, ever live down his cowardess on this issue. Lastly, John McCain is a lost soul…

      Literally thousands of marines have repeated that exact mumble mumble word salad at the end of McCain’s speech? Really?

      No, it’s because a handful of GOPers always supported it. They look at how vilified George Wallace is and they don’t want to be listed in that group in ten years.

      GOProud has not announced that it spoke at all to those Senators to see how they were going to vote.

      As for Lampooning those groups, it is because in recent history those groups have attempted to hide or explain away very anti-gay attitudes in the party. Groups like this tried to say that McCain was good for gays because he didn’t vote for an anti-gay adoption bill in AZ. Of course they left out the part where since it was a state bill McCain COULDN’T vote for it. They also left out the part about McCain running commercials supporting banning gays from adopting.

      So I have no problem with a group with varying political ideals, but not when they are trying to hide the crimes of whatever party they represent.

      Gay conservatives can take two paths in dealing with het conservatives in dealing with their homophobia: the Winston Churchill path or the Neville Chamberlain path. Log Cabin chose the Churchill path, and GOProud took the Chamberlain path.

      I’m still waiting for Barron and GOProud to explain away Coulter’s statement that American gays are dangerous to America’s military.

      Tammy Bruce shot out a press release excusing Bristol Palin’s anti-gay slur, yet nothing regarding Coulter.

      GOProud claimed, “Our gays are more macho than their straights”, yet they act like punks and cowards when it comes to Ann Coulter.

      That said, I’m surprised Christopher was able to pull himself away taking pictures of himself long enough to do an interview.

      Chris Barron is hot! Unfortantely, he forgives his Repulican thembots all transgressions, and will not give Democrats or Liberals any benefit of the doubt.

      This is Chris Barron and the gay Republican’s lame attempt at getting some credit for the repeal of DADT. Its been a very long time gay Republicans have been riding the coattails of liberal activism success while voting to spite the progress made.

      I’m not seeing the “hotness” of Barron. He’s got a crooked nose and a weird beard. There are no hot right wingers, IMO.

      @Aaron in Honolulu: And he’s got that McCain whompy-jawed thing going on. I’m just not into asymmetry. Sorry.
