Aristoshark saidWell, antijock, I respect your opinion, which I think a number of people share, but I don't share it myself. The man is, I think, sincere, and he is highly electable against Scott (of course I think a hedgehog would be too at this point), and I do not hold his past against him. I would have if I thought this was just ballot-switching for the chance to take on a sitting governor, but as I said I really believe that his views have changed. And frankly, as an example to any other disaffected Republicans, I'd like them to know that they are more than welcome in our big tent.
Is your love nature as practical as the utilitarianism of your politics?
Besides that these are not desperate times which I'd require to consider the ends ever justifying any means. I'm not a brain dead absolutist. I recognize that sometimes I have to sway to not break. Is this that?
He supported banning marriage for same sex people in Florida. He supported banning child adoption by gay people in Florida. This guy, who might even be gay himself--my gaydar certainly goes off--did his damnedest to treat me and mine then and into our futures as 2nd class citizens. I don't reward that. I tell him to go fuck himself.
We don't need his conveniently adopted revelations on this. I am confident that the wisdom of the Supremes will inevitably tell the sunshine state to take its homophobia and shove it where the sun don't shine. Even thinking in utilitarian terms, we don't need him enough to dismantle our integrity.
So while I more than welcome him aboard, he ought to just take a seat, and not the captain's.
This is fucking ludicrist, giving the captain's seat to the guy who just jumped ship. That's quite the float plan.
