In my previous post about McGreevey, a commenter stated (I have deleted the comment because I don’t want that person to think I am picking on him/her):
The interesting thing will be whether any Republican finds the courage to criticize McGreevey, whether for infidelity or for homosexual sodomy.
What is there possibly to be gained?
Is there anyone on the planet who does not know that Republicans (in theory) are against marital infidelity?
Do you want to spend another month talking about Henry Hyde’s zipper and Newt Gingrich’s young girlfriend?
Maybe we can get Larry Flynt to spend another million outing some more Congressional hypocrites. That would be helpful in November.
Is there anyone in the country who does not know that the right wing of the party is against sodomy and homosexual marriage? Do you want tto spend another month before the general election being tarred and feathered by the press as a party of bigots?
And could some please explain to me one little thing? Why is it that every time the Democrats are about to shoot themselves in the foot with both barrels, the social conservatives in my party have to open their big, fat, moralizing mouths, and place all Republicans heads between the barrel of the gun and the Democrats big toe?
Can you people not learn? Do you not understand what people mean when they say ‘Bill Clinton was blessed in his enemies?’
For the love of everything holy, NJ could be a win for Bush in November- don’t blow it. McGreevey’s administration was hopelessly corrupt, he has now admitted to having an affair while being married, is about to be charged with sexual harassment, and rather than just give the Democrats all the rope they need, the right wing is tempted one again to take the rope away and give it to the media to horsewhip the entire GOP.
Just be quiet. Trust me.
*** Update ***
On the other hand, this characterization is laughable:
A dedicated, if occasionally inept public servant resigns because of his sexuality.
He resigned because he is about to get HAMMERED with a sexual harassment suit or something of the sort. Not because he is gay- the last time I checked, that ws not an impeachable offense. Anywhere.
