Georgia Gubernatorial Race

The top REPUBLICAN candidates running for Governor of Georgia have LGBT issues on their mind(but not in the good way). It seems Karen Handel once supported domestic partner benefits and was endorsed by gay GOP group, the log cabin republicans. This doesn't sit well with the two other front runners. The VERY CONSERVATIVE  John Oxendine & Nathan Deal. Check out their latest commercials.

John Oxendine

Nathan Deal

So how does Karen Handel respond? By saying that she never joined the log cabin group and emails supporting issues like domestic partnership were written by campaign staff without her knowledge and by posting this on her website...

UGH! Sometimes it's so fun living in the Bible Belt. These narrow minded bigots can suck it.

I'll be voting for Roy Barnes...

While he isn't a pride marching gay supporter, he did reach out to the LGBT community during his first term as governor. He was the first sitting governor in Georgia to appear before a gay organization and he has expressed support for tolerance but has wavered on gay marriage and adoption. I guess that's better than nothing but it pisses me off that we don't have a truly viable candidate that is pro marriage equality.

I just have some final words for Oxendine, Handel & Deal...from Lily Allen's song, "FUCK YOU"...

so you say It's not okay to be gay,
Well I think you're just evil.
You're just some racist who can't tie my laces,
You're point of view Is medieval.
So...
Fuck You, fuck you very, very much.
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

I'm going to vote

There has got to be a strong and outspoke LGBTQ ally in the Peach state that can give any running candidate a run for their money. There has to be.

I'm sorry you don't have any LGBTQ friendly candidates in your state. Where I live in California, my district will never have an ally running for office for the same reasons.

Nathan Deal is a DOUCHE...he is "a man of his word" alright...his lying sack of shit word.

What I don't get is why ANYONE gives a flying fuck about gay rights and abortion when our country is going down the shitter. No offense, gays, but I think regardless of anyone's sexual preference, we should all care about affordable healthcare, the availability of good, decent paying jobs, quality education, alternative energy sources and, oh, I don't know, things like that.

Again, it's not that the gay cause isn't important, but I am SO SO SO tired of elections being based on MORAL issues that are tied to religious beliefs.

He is a douche..so is Karen Handel! I think she will end up winning the damn primary thanks to Sarah Palin's endorsement. UGH...did I just say she will win because of Palin? Sad to think that she has any pull on voters but alas she does.
