TP: Mr. Cain, you recently came under fire for your comments about the kind of people you would appoint to your cabinet. Would you be opposed to appointing an openly gay but qualified person to be in your cabinet?
CAIN: Nope, not at all. I wouldnt have a problem with that at all. I just want people who are qualified, I want them to believe in the Constitution of the United States of America. So yep, I dont have a problem with appointing an openly gay person. Because theyre not going to try to put sharia law in our laws.
ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]
If it hadn't been for Log Cabin RINOs nailing him to the perch, Herman's campaign train would've
been pushing up daisies in the wheelhouse before the cabose ever got out of the Cainyard.
That question he was asked was a pretty good got-ya question.
No nominated R candidate will ever give a outright ‘No’ on that, nor should they take that bait.
A better answer would be to say
‘I could appoint him/her if he agrees with me on my positions, one of my positions is that marriage is intended to be legal union between a man and a woman and should not be tampered with for purposes of social experimentation.’,
But such a answer requires forethought and planning, something Rs on TV are not known for.
