Gay Alaskans discuss Sarah Palin

"She's worse than Dick Cheney, and a better shot."

A Human Rights Campaign staffer made that video. While I've had questions about HRC in the past, they are certainly stepping up the election activism.

Human Rights Campaign honcho Joe Solmonese does not buy John McCain's doublespeak interview with the Washington Blade, which basically amounts to, "I have gay friends, but voted against every single piece of pro-gay legislation that came my way."

John McCain’s answers to those well written questions do nothing but insult the intelligence of the LGBT community. Senator McCain’s double speak fools no one. At the end of the day, his policies haven’t changed at all.

It’s interesting that John McCain thinks that being civil is going to win us over, but it doesn’t make up for the fact that he is against every single policy that would protect and promote equality for the LGBT community.

It’s 2008, ‘some of my best friends are gay’ doesn’t work anymore. Sorry, we’ve already had one ‘compassionate conservative’ in the White House for eight years, we aren’t interested in another.

Good job, Joe. Now stop giving money to Republican candidates altogether, mm-kay?
