Requiem for a candidate: 'I could have been the gay Herman Cain!'

June 13, 2012|By Mark Z. Barabak


Fred Karger failed.

There were 20 Republican presidential debates and not one featured the California political-strategist-turned-openly-gay-White-House-hopeful, although he came close — or at least should have — to qualifying for a session last summer, if only Fox News hadn’t changed the rules. snip

Karger, who has crusaded against the Mormon Church for its efforts to outlaw same-sex marriage, will not back Mitt Romney because the likely GOP nominee shares that opposition. Karger is not sure, however, that he will vote for President Obama, though he was lavish in praising his support for allowing gays and lesbians to marry.

“I think back what to it was like for me as a teenager” in the 1960s, Karger said, and the effect it would have had for the president of the United States to voice that kind of support for gay rights.

1. I don't get it

One crackpot college professor says he doesn't like Obama and it was like that thread was pinned to to the top of the page for days on end here.

A Republican Presidential candidate says he won't vote for Romney and we get

Something is funny around here. And I don't mean the kind of funny that makes me laugh either.
