Those Delicate Republican Throats



According to the eternally purse-lipped Cal Thomas, those pro-gay "elites ignore majority opinion and seek to shove it down our throats." ---

Thomas was writing about a recent court decision declaring the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional -- and in this case, he was blathering on about how federal law should sometimes trump states' rights. Sounds like a gol-durned socialist to me!

It's nothing new that, like most Republican lackeys, Thomas has no qualms about flip-flopping on his party's most sacred planks (e.g., its blind hatred of the government) whenever the opportunity is presented to bash gays, President Obama, the working class and/or congressional Democrats. When it comes to DOMA, suddenly Thomas loves those intrusive federal jack-booted thugs. 

But what is it about social conservatives that makes them so concerned about their delicate throats? Like Utah Sen. Chris "I don't mind gays. But I don't want 'em stuffing it down my throat all the time" Buttars, they can't seem to help thinking about throat stuffing and throat shoving whenever the gay issue rears its big, throbbing head.

Obviously, such statements are intended as big blow-jobs to their homophobic constituents. The ironic thing, though, is they are so often disseminated from the most limp and flaccid sources imaginable.
