This is going to cost me about 3/4 of my traffic

April 6, 2010

but I am delinking The Other McCain. Yesterday he put up a post that ended –

Why is Arianna defending Charlie Crist? I don’t know, but she certainly has an extensive history of supporting closeted gay Republicans. IYKWIMAITYD.

In other words “don’t vote for Crist, he’s a fag”

I questioned him on it this morning and his response was that it’s just politics not homophobia and that Crist had gone dirty first. That may be but I am not following the FL Senate race, and I don’t link Crist, and I’m sorry this crosses the line from politics to intolerance.

Update –

Unreligious Right noted in the comments-

Just a thought… I have some left-wing atheist sites linked that I disagree with strongly on about 99% of topics not related to atheism. Putting someone on the blogroll doesn’t necessarily imply endorsement. If someone links me, I link them back just as a reciprocal thing, whether I like their site or not.

My response –

You’re right and I had just come to the same conclusion after I cooled down a bit. Err in haste repent in leisure. The thing is I know that McCain and Smitty aren’t really homophobic or intolerant or they wouldn’t have had some of the conversations with me that they have. I was just so mad that I wrote stuff I shouldn’t have.

I am going to add The Other McCain back to the blogroll but I reserve the right to make a pain in the ass out of myself over stuff like this.

I also want to add that in my opinion not only was this comment offensive but it’s bad politics. Florida has a large gay population, at least some of them are going to lean conservative how do you think they respond to things like this.

    Oh, Jenn, relax and concentrate on keeping us honest.
    Not that I’m defending RSM in the slightest–he’s a big boy and can take care of himself.
    Also, I sort of wouldn’t have written that, though I may have had an equally irritating riff or five of my own.
    Cheers,
    Chris

      I know I kind of flew of the handle. All I can say is it’s a very touchy subject and I reacted badly.
