Alan Keyes gets an “A” for effort this electoral season. The legendarily wacky Republican presidential candidate very rarely makes headlines, nor does anyone seem to be voting for him, but that hasn’t stop the hateful politico from voicing his archaic opinion on policy issues, like gay marriage.
You can bet Keyes – who famously disowned his lesbian daughter – has loads to say about same-sex nuptials, which he blames on rival Mitt Romney:
Most people are unaware of the way Massachusetts came to adopt same-sex marriage. They think the state’s Supreme Judicial Court forced it to happen. That’s incorrect.”
“The court merely issued an opinion stating that, in its view, the existing marriage law was unconstitutional because it failed to allow persons of the same sex to marry. The court then gave the legislature 180 days to ‘take such action as it may deem appropriate in light of this opinion’ – implicitly telling lawmakers to come up with a new marriage statute.
Mitt Romney pushed through same-sex marriage all by himself, in the absence of any authority or requirement to do so…
Awesome! We love when people remind voters of Romney’s dubious political history. Too bad this one comes from Keyes, who’s audience consists of conservative twats like Madeleine Crabb and Grant Swank. Not even they would vote for him, we’re sure.
