The Republican-led House Majority Caucus in Alaska thinks civil rights are a real knee-slapper, especially for those icky gay people who have-- ew!-- sex and stuff. Because that's what this is all about: gay sex. Not lasting relationships, not commitment, certainly not equal rights, but-- ew!-- sex.
Alaska's Republican-led House Majority Caucus really gave had themselves a good laugh on Friday, when Mark Miller from the Juneau Empire asked if their upcoming initiatives include civil unions or domestic partnerships to same-sex couples.
I’m looking at a recent Public Policy Polling survey of Alaska that found that only 30 percent of respondents believe there should be no legal recognition of gay couples’ relationships in Alaska. I was just curious, would the caucus support the idea of having domestic partnerships or civil unions open to same-sex couples?
House Leader Lance Pruitt:
"...We focused on the things that really allow people to have a great life... We didn’t have a discussion here about what happens inside your home. We had a discussion here about whether you can make money, whether there's a great economy, and whether or not you’re going to have the opportunity to live in Alaska with a great future. Now, your discussion on that, we didn’t talk about that. I'll be straight, we didn't talk about that particular issue... It wasn't something that came up in our discussion.
Ohhh, I see, they want to "allow people to have a great life"... unless they're gay.
In case you didn't catch the eleventy times Pruitt mentioned it, civil unions JUST DIDN'T COME UP.
And as he suggested (subliminally), he'll "be straight," see, because, in case you may have thought otherwise, HE'S NOT GAY.
Are Republicans trying to become obsolete, or are they truly so dense that they cannot recognize what's happening to their own party? The GOP can’t stop losing, and a big, thick, juicy, new, improved Civil War is infecting the Republican Party.
