Quote of the Day
“All faggots must die.”
-- Comment left on the Joe. My God. blog, which is dedicated to gay and lesbian issues
The fact that somebody said something like this on a gay website isn't surprising. The fact that the comment was traced back to the office of Republican U.S. Senator from Georgia Saxby Chambliss is. Chambliss's spokesperson confirms it.
Actually, I take it back. It's not that surprising either way.
Chambliss says his people are working to weed out the loudmouthed asshole who's terrified of gays -- which means this could take a while. Get ready for the -- if you'll pardon the bad pun -- stonewall.
John Cole over at Balloon Juice brings up another great point -- that obviously the comment didn't come from Chambliss himself since at the time it was sent he was busy in D.C., engaging in the state-sanctioned homophobia of voting against the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
