John Edwards "Not Comfortable
Around ' Those' People."
Shrum says Democrat Presidential Candidate John Edwards didn't care for gay people: Washington Blade
Perennial Democratic strategist Bob Shrum drops a bombshell in his new book, according to a report in today’s Washington Post.
In the book, he says he asked former Sen. John Edwards at the outset of his 1998 Senate campaign, “What is your position, Mr. Edwards, on gay rights?”
“I’m not comfortable around those people,” was Edwards’ reply, according to Shrum.
Had history shown us, oh - I don't know - say, Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain - uttering what Edwards said, I'm sure cocktail wiener Keith Olbermann would have had something lengthy, flowery and self-righteous to say about it - something written by someone other than Olbermann, no doubt.
But we'll hear no criticism of what Edwards said about "Those People" from Liberal Talk Radio, AirHead America or Rosie O'Moo.
No mention of his homophobia at GLAAD's Main Page or their 'stories to watch' page. Why so quiet, GLAAD? I wonder if a you'd treat his remarks differently if they'd been spoken by a Republican or Conservative.
Again we have Left Wing Hypocrisy redefining itself again, with Edwards getting a Free Pass for his comments.
