What a moron. Really.
What kind of democratically elected public official uses derogatory language targeted at a specific group in a public address? It's disgusting that The Governator would use the term "girlie men" to deride his political adversaries. What is he implying - that girlie men make poor political decisions? No, it's that gay men should not be respected. This, on a nationally televised speech. He's done this before, and knows it pisses people off. But I guess we know that the Republican party doesn't give a shit about the queer vote, or about queer people at all.
If Ahhhnold had gotten up there and said those people were lazy cotton pickers or wetbacks or greedy Jews, he would have gotten strung up. But picking on gay men is fine. And you know, his speech was vetted by the Republican powers that be. They all think bashing gays is they way to lead America.
Can we just get rid of Bush now? I'm so sick of this facist administration.
