Giuliani Moves Further Right On Gay Rights

Rudy Giuliani’s got civil union cold feet. The former NYC mayor, who’s vying to be the next Republican president, continues to distance himself from his gay loving ways by augmenting his policy on gay “nuptials”.

A campaign aide told the Globe this weekend that Giuliani favors a much more modest set of rights for gay partners than civil union laws in effect in four states offer.

In an interview and follow-up e-mails, Maria Comella, the campaign’s deputy communications director, told the Globe that Giuliani supports domestic partnership laws similar to the one he initiated in New York in 1998.

Giuliani also maintains that states should decide their own gay laws. Never mind America’s liberal promise, this man wants to be a conservative hero. Too bad conservatives hate him and, now, even more gays will, too.

Nicely played, Giuliani! Our fears of you being our next President have been allayed!

    I think more then ever this election is going to be about polar opposites. We should only be so lucky that Giuliani is the Republican candidate. It would move the debate more center/left once he gets the nomination. God forbid someone like Huckabee or Romney get the nomination, with their profound disdain for our gay brethren. Yes, Giuliani is a schmuck, but I think he’s the least schmucky of the Republicans so far.
