Gay Republican Purge/The List

Immediately after the Mark Foley scandal broke, some anti-Republican gay-rights activists composed a memo containing the names of closeted gay Republican Congressional staffers and sent it to leading Christian-right advocacy groups. The founder and chairman of one of those groups, the Rev. Don Wildmon of the American Family Association, told me he has received that memo, which he referred to simply as "The List."

2. There will be hell to pay among true conservatives for this
It's going to lose them the House, and perhaps even the Senate.

The Democrats won't beat them; they're beating themselves.

And my GOD how I love it! :evilgrin:

4. And they continue to link homosexuality with sex predators...
Gay republicans will be the scapegoat while the leadership continues on...business as usual. RW nutjobs be frothing at the mouth...blaming gays.

This is sickening :puke:

5. Here's my conspiracy theory on the whole deal: The rethugs
"outed" foley. Over the next few weeks, we will start ot hear more about how the dems and liberal media are cramming the story down our throats. This unfair bias will tilt the elections to the left, SOOOOOO if the real repug voters want to save the country, they have to turn out to vote in droves. Iraq? Katrina? Abramof? Defecit? All left below the radar.
