    this was quite awesome:

    "we hope that over time, as you advance in years and wisdom, you will come to embrace the values of inclusiveness and equality as well.

"

    Thanksgiving is going to be awkward

    Lol! I love politics in my home state; always interesting and full of closeted politicians.

    Also, be sure to add Kasich to that list. Some if the older gay at my home church told me stories about him.

    Two things.

    1. He just screams "bitch bottom" to me.

    2. No true libertarian would ever oppose marriage equality or work to reinstate DADT. A real libertarian would call marriage equality a state's right issue, and would likely support it. DADT goes against the very concept of personal liberties a libertairian champions. This guy is a straight up Republican who is trying to co-opt the libertarian movement.

    that was fun
    He has all sort of experience to be a really great guy, and a good public figure, and yet he is such a jerk.
    Bigots have no place in public office.

    Sherrod Brown is whooping his ass in the election results too. No big shock. I think the commercials highlighting his hiring of his college buddies with no experience for six figure jobs doomed him everywhere in the state. Even my Republican Catholic parents were put off by him.

    Seems his family loves him and is going to try their hardest to try to change his mind on his gay family. I say bravo to the family! People shouldn't cut people out of their lives because they don't believe in gay marriage, because then their minds will always be in that disgusting place!

    GOOD LUCK TO HIS FAMILY.


    PS--- how the hell isnt he gay? He is a Tea Partier...so its a high chance he is icon_neutral.gif

    Im really glad his family, extended or not, chose to rally around their gay relatives and use their stories to make an impact. Truly awesome to see especially in a midwest state

    Libertarians are often just Republicans in denial, which I guess would explain why he purposefully just nodded when asked on-camera whether it's the state's role to force rape victims to bear children.

    Because he didn't want his answer to be transcribed verbatim in print.

    Mandel got spanked.
    By his family and the public.
    At least Ohio got it right this time around.
