Openly gay Minnesota Republican state Sen. Paul Koering is under fire for refusing to support same-sex marriage because the state has "more important" items on the agenda. Koering is getting a lot of understandable flack from his fellow gays and this, in part, is how his assistant is responding to complaining emails:
I can testify all day long about how much Senator Koering cares for the People of Senate District 12. He ran three consecutive times, being defeated the first two, and why did he put himself through so much hard work? Do you think it was because he needed another job? Absolutely not! He did it because he believed he was the best person to serve the People that he calls neighbors, friends, and family. And especially now, in a time like this, we are being bogged down with this completely pointless issue.
... I know very well that you will respond to this e-mail of mine with some probably quirky, snide, and very thoughtless comment that will make me out to be a bad person and threaten the Senator even more just as most of the absolutely tactless and disrespectful e-mails we've received have been written, but really, don't waste your time. We'll just put your e-mail where it belongs, in the trash.
Ooh, smell her!
The snideness continues at JoeMyGod and Pam's House Blend.
I suggest sending Sen. Koering an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. His office phone number: (651) 296-4875.
I look forward to the utterly useless and equally bilious Log Cabin Club inviting this specimen to their annual awards gala, probably to give him an award. But since they're broke, maybe it'll just be at a completely pointless location.
