5743...Conservatives Are Tres Confusing Pour Moi

They are all about freedom, right?

Unless you say something they don't agree with.

Take this story from  Senator Rob Portman, a Republican from Ohio, a conservative dude, was taken down a peg or three by the freedom loving folks attending the Conservative Political Action Conference in D.C. today coz he feels that gay people, including his son, should be free to get married.  An attendee at the conference, David Kern, said that his son's choice of college was the straw that turned his son gay.  Mr. Kern said "Well what did Sen. Portman expect when he sent his son to Yale?"

On reflection perhaps Mr. Kern said had a point.  I have been a lot more you-know since I took Art History in second year.

  1. I would have thought that the more interesting point here was the apparent hypocrisy of these Republicans/Cons.

    He apparently only accepted gay marriage only after he found out his own son was gay. Every single gay man or woman is the son or daughter of someone, no?

    Yet these people condemn gay people for their choice of lifestyle until, as this example illustrates, it turns out that it is one of their own children or family.
