The current editor of the Washington Blade is a nice change from the right-winger Chris Crain who used to run the shop.
Sadly, the irony of Craig’s predicament is lost on him. Like it or not, he has become a member of that community he so loathes. Mitt Romney publicly denounced him and removed him from his Idaho campaign, giving Craig a little taste of what it’s like to be the member of a group that is hated and discriminated against. No wonder he chose to run back into the closet. His so-called friends in the GOP are shunning him and some, he claims, even refuse to look him in the eye. How does it feel, Larry?
But rather than add his voice to those fighting prejudice and discrimination, Craig continues to propagate both. Even after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct in connection with solicitation of gay sex, he continues to demonize and attack fellow gay people. Craig told Lauer that homosexuality is, “a lifestyle I don’t agree with.” He voted against the hate crimes bill only weeks ago, maintaining his perfect anti-gay voting record in Congress.
