R Clark Cooper and His Log Cabin HomoCONs Are Giddy As Little Girls Over Paul Ryan

From the Log Cabin Republican website:

Congressman Paul Ryan is a strong choice for vice president, and his addition to  the GOP ticket will help Republican candidates up and down the ballot,” said R.  Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “As chairman of the  House Budget Committee and author of the Republican “path to prosperity” that  provided the blueprint for serious spending cuts in this Congress, nobody is  more qualified to articulate a conservative economic vision to restore the  American economy and stimulate job creation.

At the same time,  Congressman Ryan’s 2007 vote in favor of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act  and his consistent willingness to engage with Log Cabin on a range of issues  speaks to his record as a fair-minded policymaker. Overall, while Log Cabin  Republicans have not completed the endorsement process for the 2012 presidential  election, this is a choice that all Republicans can be excited about, and which  sends a good message about the kind of campaign Governor Romney wants to run,  and the kind of president Governor Romney wants to be.

Obviously the Log Cabin HomoCONs think its “fair-minded” that Ryan did later REVOKE  his support of ENDA and also voted for a federal marriage amendment that would have defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman everywhere in the United States, voted against hate crimes protections, and voted to exempt faith-based initiatives from state and local government civil rights laws.  Not to mention that Herr Ryan supported a ban on gay adoption in DC. and opposed implementation of DC’s domestic partnership registry.

Paul Ryan is MORE anti-gay than Mitt Romney himself.

How much more proof is needed that the LCR,  and GoProud of course,  are just insane and fucking evil and should be SHUNNED and SPURNED by the entire LGBT community.

  1. Will, do you have any idea how many gay members make up GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans? Is it in the single digits? Do these people really matter to gay people? Except to loathe and revile of course. We do know that these people are no better than the republican constituency as a whole so do they really matter? Just curious.
