Stand by your bigot
In too-sad-to-be-funny news, Rick Santorum's communications director declares that he's a proud gay man. In a phone interview with PageOneQ and BlogACTIVE.com, Robert Traynham insists there is no contradiction between being gay and working for a man who has made a career of bashing homosexuality:
When asked how a gay man could speak for one of the nation's most notorious homophobes, Traynham, left, protested that has "been with the Senator for eight years." Traynham went on to say "Senator Santorum is a man of principle, he is a man who sticks up for what he believes in, I strongly do support Senator Santorum."
When pressed on whether he supported the Senator's stands on lesbian and gay issues, Mr. Traynham abruptly ended the phone call by saying "Senator Santorum is a family man. I have been with Senator Santorum for eight years and I am very proud to be with him."Yeah, proud of a guy who once warned the Supreme Court of the dangers of not upholding the Texas sodomy law in these terms: ''then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything."
