If An Obscure GOP Presidential Candidate Supports Gay Rights, Does It Make A Sound?


When former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson showed up at last week’s Republican debate, he argued for eliminating the minimum wage, corporate taxes, and cutting Medicare nearly in half. He apparently hired an undergrad in computer animation to put together his campaign video. In it he commands you to “Imagine man administration for whom LGBT is not a 4 letter word.” Oh yes, a Republican presidency… what a refreshing kick to the groin that would be! Even though some Republicans now support marriage equality, Johnson and openly-gay Fred Karger will probably have to settle competing for “Most obscure queer-friendly GOP candidate” seeing as neither one has a snowball’s chance in hell of actually getting their party’s nomination. Plus, if you say something reasonable in a room full of insane people, does that really make you a hero? Nah, we didn’t think so either.
