“In 2004 the social question that animated the campaign was gay marriage. Before the election season had unfolded, I had talked to George about not making gay marriage a significant issue. We have, I reminded him, a number of close friends who are gay or whose children are gay.” That’s from her book. Well gee, Georgie, we have gay friends, so don’t go around persecuting them. But don’t make it an issue, either! God knows we don’t like them enough to, I don’t know, recognize them as human beings or make an ethical stand on the issue. We might not be elected if we don’t pander to the worst of the right. Sorry, but choosing NOW, when you’re promoting your stupid book, to stand up for the people and the rights that your husband spent EIGHT YEARS trying to destroy? Obnoxious. While you were busy keeping your trapper shut, he was busy restricting reproductive care to underdeveloped nations. She is no better than he is, she’s just the more palatable version.
