Romney using proxies to convince voters he really IS anti-gay, really

Sorry, Charlie, that pink boat sailed years ago. I’ve mentioned before that Ted Kennedy’s campaign recruited me back in 1994 to help them fight Romney’s attempt to convince voters in Massachusetts that he was really more pro-gay, and would do more for gays, than Ted Frigging Kennedy. They asked me to write a letter to the editor of the gay paper in Boston (and I did) explaining that Romney wasn’t really as good an honorary homosexual as Kennedy. That’s how bad things were, that’s how successful Romney was in pleading his case that he was the best thing to hit the gay agenda since Judy Garland and disco.

Ted Kennedy, folks. That was Romney’s mentor – nay – the guy Romney claimed didn’t hold a candle to him on his support for gay rights. It’s no wonder Romney is pulling out all the stops to convince Republican primary voters that he’s not REALLY pro-gay. If Romney were any more pro-gay, his wife would be his husband.
