What do you do if you are a Republican governor going into a re-election in a couple of days....and you are trailing by double digits to your Democratic opponent?
What Republicans always do....bash gays.
Down to the last two days before voting booths open, Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher urged supporters to disregard polls that show him behind, while his running mate referred to the Democratic candidates as “San Francisco treats.”
(Pat) Boone, the singer and descendent of Daniel Boone, recorded a phone message for the Kentucky Republican Party that asked voters whether they “want a governor who’d like Kentucky to be another San Francisco.” Those calls went out to tens of thousands of homes Friday. Link
Talking gay smack talk, I would predict, will make Fletcher's loss that much wider....but hey, at least nobody can say that GOP wingnuts weren't a predictable bunch of slimeballs.
PS: That's Pat Boone in the picture. He's not gay.
