Remember when Larry “Wide Stance” Craig said this back in 2007 after he got arrested for lewd conduct in an airport men’s room for allegedly soliciting sex:
“I am not gay. I never have been gay.”
He felt compelled to follow that with, “I love my wife.“
Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), 2013 (via Politico):
“I’m not gay. So I’m not going to marry one.”
Marry one what?
I bet he, too, really really loves his wife.
The disconnect between inside-and-outside-the-Beltway attitudes comes at a thorny time, especially for Republicans. The party is trying to broaden its appeal to younger Americans — who support gay marriage in large numbers — as well as scores of new voting blocs.
How’s that reachy-outy thing workin’ for ya, GOP?
