Then, Ford STUPIDLY let these words out of his mouth:
"I do not support the decision today reached by the New Jersey Supreme Court regarding gay marriage. I oppose gay marriage, and have voted twice in Congress to amend the United States Constitution to prohibit same-sex marriage. This November there's a referendum on the Tennessee ballot to ban same-sex marriage - I am voting for it."
OK, WTF? What does this have to do with Tennessee? NOTHING, other than it's a good day for civil rights in America.
Kos FINALLY woke up and issued this comment:
First of all, what New Jersey does is none of Ford's business.
Second of all, the NJ court didn't mandate gay marriage. It mandated equal protection under the law. How fucking awful! It's a disgrace! Equal rights? Pshaw! How dare the NJ Supreme Court refuse to allow discrimination?
Yeah, I want Ford to win. But I won't cry when he doesn't.The Comments are now approaching 900, and it slows my browser to a crawl. You know what, though? They are not calling KOS a concern troll. With the exception of the same few Ford staffers who have gone after US, they are in agreement with Kos.
It's about damned time people out there woke up to the fact that Junior is trying to out-redneck Corker and will NOT represent our interests in Washington. yes, they have been trying to call him the N-Word using code, but this proves that Ford is no better, because this is the moral equivalent of screaming FAGGOT!
A pox on both their houses.
H/T to WTL for emailing me, Auto has a great post exploring it further at the Fly.
