“If you want to sum up his evolution on LGBT rights, ‘Mitt Gets Worse’ is a very accurate phrase,” says Rep. Barney Frank for Mitt Gets Worse, an “oral history project and rapid response campaign that aims to educate voters about Mitt Romney’s extreme anti-LGBT agenda.”
Frank recounts how Romney came onto the scene in 1994, claiming he would be a better supporter of LGBT rights than then-Senator Ted Kennedy, then observes that Romney “has never been in favor of any legislation or executive order” to advance LGBT rights.
Since it’s pretty much a matter of public knowledge that Mitt would shuck his children of the corn for power, Frank dismisses Romney’s words as a ploy to garner votes, before comparing him to another man of intractable ambition and immovable hair: George Wallace.
“I’m not sure that George Wallace really hated black people and I don’t know that Mitt Romney really dislikes gay people. They were both consumed by ambition and willing to trash minority groups and appeal to prejudice against them for political advancement.”
Does this mean Gary Sinise is going to play Mitt Romney in a TV movie too?
