Hilbama pander to the "God hates fags" crowd
Mark Penn's triangular client I can understand, but Obama? TPM:
The Obama campaign is coming under fire for staging a campaign gospel tour that includes gospel singer Donnie McClurkin, an antigay crusader who has railed against "the curse of homosexuality."
We contacted the Obama campaign for comment on this early this afternoon, asking whether it would disavow his remarks. As of this evening, the Obama campaign had yet to comment. We'll bring you their statement if they do say something.
Obama backers point out that Rev. Dr. Harold Mayberry, whose support Hillary has sought, has preached against homosexuality to his San Francisco congregation.
What's really going on here?
Partly, of course, Hilbama are reaching out to bigoted Christianists; no surprise, here.
More importantly, I think Hilbama are pandering to the deeply closeted Village crowd of political consultants and operatives, who, because they hate themselves, think that America does. In fact, America has long-since moved on.
