Not every homosexual believes in the same thing.
Myabe he’ll hire Massa to be on his staff.
Dog bites man.
Maybe you can be gay and STILL not feel the laws and customs 100’s of years old should be changed?
Maybe you can be SMART about being gay and not think you have to come swishing out of the closet OR into the military (if you want to live in a good and safe country)
Being gay AND being against “dont ask dont tell” are NOT mutually exclusive. (or hypocrtitical) Are gays too stupid to see that (I dont think it is a gay/stupid thing only a liberal/stupid thing. )
So, he lied about his military record and he’s gay.
Wonderful. Boy, we Republicans can really field some winning candidates can’t we?
I worked with a gay guy who was a good conservative. He never talked up gay marriage or any of that crap. He just lived his life, did his job, and voted Republican. He didn’t keep his life a secret—but he didn’t make it the focus of his life either.
I don’t think he was a chameleon either, changing his actions to fit the people around him. He was genuinely conservative in his politics AND he happened to have a boyfriend.
I perhaps belabor this point to merely point out: it is not impossible to be gay and conservative. I have witnessed it first hand. The guy disdained liberalism, because he worked hard for everything he had, and didn’t feel like having the government redistribute his wealth. We really didn’t talk much about social issues, but he wasn’t vehement about any of them; I suspect he was generally supportive of the conservative positions on them.
I think Kirk ought to be judged like anyone else: his positions on the issues and competency.
For instance, Bill Clinton was not a homosexual, but I still don’t want him back in power. Same for Jimmy Carter.
Maybe this same reporter should talk to Larry about a wild limo ride...or maybe follow-up on an unsolved murder of a choir director. Nah!
Think I'll rent "The Birdcage" tonight and sip a rainbow-colored drink...
Add this to Kirk faking his military record, why oh why couldn’t have this stuff came out before the primary?
This is the candidate who was backed by the Republican “leadership” in the primary. This is what they wanted. A gay pro-abortion socialist.
And the Illinois Star Trek curse continues. Republican's shouldn't even run a candidate with a Star Trek last name...
Oh, that's right. There's only one permitted viewpoint on DADT within the Gay community. You couldn't have a diversity of opinion on that matter.
So, when they couldn't blackmail him into switching his vote by threatening to out him - they outed him. Nice!
I don’t know if the guy is gay or not but stories like this is BS. From what I’ve heard about the guy he doesn’t “tack” right at all. I’m so sick of liberals I want to vomit, all I've ever heard about him is that he's a RINO. Probably perfect for Illinois.
I’ve heard lots of things about lots of people. I hate the tabloid trash reporting. Why not demand names of the accusers?
The author doesn’t understand the “don’t ask” part, just wants to tell. “If there’s an investigation . . .” wouldn’t be allowed under “don’t ask.”
Is it remotely possible these folks are lying ?
The "gig is up"?
Is that a) an alternative spelling, b) a nautical pun or c) political correctness run amuck?
