I just love this… Â So yesterday John Huntsman go into the GOP 2012 Presidential race. Â Sure, his message of “Let’s get out of Afghanistan” is going to be overshadowed by the impending announcement by the President tonight. Â But you know what couldn’t stand? Â Huntsman’s statement that he respected President Obama. Â Republicans didn’t like that at all.
Huntsman doesn’t seem to want to get into the whole “social conservative” meme that most Republicans do. Â You know, like when serial-adulterer Newt Gingrich says that gays are going to destroy the world if they’re allowed the same civil rights as regular people. Â Huntsman was noncommittal when it came to New York’s impending vote on marriage equality. Â Imagine that. Â A Republican who’s for states rights, even those states rights that Republican don’t agree with! Â How in the hell could they allow that?
So Hannity went after Huntsman, questioning his Republican credentials. Â After all, if he’s not anti-gay like the rest of the Republican field is (sans Fred Karger, a gay Republican who’s also running but is being ignored), how does he expect the anti-gay Republican base to support him?
Hannity, you’re a douchecanoe.
