Dean should have been in the Czech Republic with Joe
Guest post by Augusto
Seriously. It must be so hard to be honest and consistent, and to remain within high standards. This is the deal: Howard Dean was courting Evangelicals and incorrectly stated that his party’s platform declares that “marriage is between a man and a woman.” Next thing the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is returning some much needed money that had been donated by Dean’s party.
The whole info is here.
Call me a crook, but I kid you not, I would have kept the money. What could have possibly been more irritating to the far right and Dean himself? So, here’s a draft e-mail for the NGLTF to send next time around:
“Dear (pretty much anybody, perhaps except Feingold):
Thanks for the backstabbing. We’re keeping your money anyway.
The emoticon at the end is paramount. It indicates you’re not angry.
While I’m at it, check out a list of gay friendly candidates at The Victory Fund.
