Maine GOP Warns Voter Registration Is Evil Homosexual Plot

This campaign ad was obviously not designed by a gay man.The loony hillbillies of the Maine GOP have had a hard time convincing residents to back them in their opposition to a statewide referendum measure that would permit Election Day voter registration, so their latest strategy has them running ads ominously informing the citizenry IN SCREAMING ALL CAPS that anyone who supports the measure, known as “Question 1,” is in fact a flaming member of Team Homo, because voting rights are super gay. Real heterosexuals hate democracy.

More on this homophobic weirdness from the Sun Journal:

The chairman of the Maine Republican Party is defending a print advertisement that singles out a gay rights’ group’s involvement in the effort to retain Election Day registration.

GOP Chairman Charlie Webster said the ad, which was circulated by more than 25 community newspapers, was designed to “educate” the public about EqualityMaine, one of the advocacy groups involved in the coalition that wants to retain the state’s 38-year-old EDR law. However, members of the coalition say the ad is designed to mobilize opponents of same-sex marriage and marks yet another example of Webster and EDR opponents’ attempts to distract voters from the real issue of Question 1.

Oh those crafty homosexuals, “first they came to redecorate,” etc. [Sun Journal via TPM]

    This from the fuckers who have been actively recruiting voters in the churches for the past 35 years. How much money did they spend on that?

    • SorosBot

      And unlike sexual orientation, being a churchgoer actually is a lifestyle choice.

      • Cash4HoboBeans

        Methinks going to church can be an indication of sexual orientation–if you're a Catholic priest, at least

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com Herring_Burnit

        Yes. You don't have to *do* anything to be gay, but in order to be a churchgoer, you have to — surprise! — go to fucking church.

        These people are so fucking hateful, that I can't WAIT till they've extinguished their contribution to the gene pool and died the ignominous death they deserve.

    • V572625694

      Ha ha, you mean "Olympia Snowe," who sounds like some sort of ice goddess but is actually from Brooklyn or some damn place.* And Collins has Diane Rehm's Disease which it isn't appropriate to make fun of except for the fact that as a US Senatorette your job is to talk, and having that kind of herky-jerky hitch in your oratorial gitalong is like being a one-legged placekicker, if you know what I mean.

        • V572625694

          Really more for her DINO/RINO vacillation than her odd talk. Yes being a swing vote allows her to harvest much personal glory, air time, and pork for the Pine Tree State, but it’s pretty ugly when you just see it like that.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com Herring_Burnit

            Yah. She keeps dipping her toes in the shallows and then playing shitty little games with both sides and with the people of her state. If only Mainiacs weren't quite so Maniacal, they'd break down and find themselves a decent Democrat. But then again, this is the state that elected that revolting pig Paul LePage.

  • flamingpdog

    The ad does not mention Election Day registration. It also doesn't disclose who paid for it. Webster said none of the Maine GOP's campaign material contained a disclosure line, which according to the state's Ethics Commission, is not required by law.

    He added that he had a relative who was gay. "How they live their life is none of my business and I have no problem with them being part of the democratic process. It’s just that people have a right to know whose funding this effort, who is involved in this campaign."

    There is a squeaker of a recall going on here in Michigan. In some non-descript district in suburban Flint, reports are out that "family value" conservative Paul "Babby-Daddy" Scott is going to get recalled 50.5% to 49.5%. Please let this be true, lord. This "young gun" is repugnant.

    • fuflans

      damn. day-em.

      tonight's feeling a little like payback for baggers.

      • Negropolis

        Michigan Radio is confirming that the unofficial tally shows Paul losing by 232 votes:

        Rick Pluta just called in to say that Michigan State Representative Paul Scott (R-Grand Blanc) has been recalled. Scott conceded defeat saying his campaign did their best, they came up short, and that he will not rule out running again in the future.

        Scott is the first sitting state lawmaker to be recalled since 1983.

        Oh, happy day! I know this only makes a little dent in their numbers, but it better be a wake-up call. What's notable about this is that this is a pretty solidly red, Republican district. It's also a suburban district, meaning that they are generally not crazy about the GOP on social issues. Let this be a warning to all suburban Republicans in Michigan that there seats are just as vulnerable, next year. There ill-gotten gains are showing themselves for what they are.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Young gun? Must be 55, at least.

      • Negropolis

        He was an actual young gun. 29 years of age. First elected to the state house two years ago. He was one of those "our blacks are better than their blacks" characters, and apparently a close ally of the governor's.

            After the high of last night, I'm having a joy hangover. I have the most sickening feeling that he'll be given some cabinet position in the Snyder administration since they happen to be allies for reasons I've yet to even begin to understand.

            The GOP is really pissed about this recall. In fact, before the recall, they were putting together punative legislation that specifically targeted the teachers union behind this recall. There are already GOP consultants saying that the gloves are off, now, and that the GOP is going to try to crush teachers into the ground for this.

    By a relatively wide margin, Mainers on Tuesday overturned a recently passed law that would have ended a 38-year-old practice of allowing voters to register on Election Day…
    With more than three-quarters of the state’s precincts reporting early Wednesday morning, the yes side was leading 60 percent to 40 percent and had declared victory. The yes side was prevailing in every county, with especially lopsided results in Portland and Bangor. http://bangordailynews.com/2011/11/08/politics/ea

    In all the talk of calling zygotes humans and teachers fascistic parasites, I didn't realize that there was an election in AZ to recall Russell Pearce, president of the state Senate and architect of the infamous immigration law. And whadda ya know, Pearce is now the first legislator in AZ history to be recalled. Of course, the guy who beat him is also a Republican, but presumably he's at least less insane.

    A headline on the L.A. Times website right now: "Elections may signal a pause in conservative trend". I'd prefer the more accurate "Election results a vaguely hopeful sign that sanity is finally reasserting itself," but what the hell. You take the little satisfactions where you can get 'em.

    yeah, but how does this effect Herman Cain? or his victims?

      What victims? Also Bill Clinton.

      • poncho_pilot

        ya know? now that i think about it, we're all Cain's victims. but some have had to deal with the gross prospects in person while the rest of us are armchair victims.

            An understandable and comprehensible reaction. (Though you might want to stop paying attention to the media for the remainder of your lifetime. Not that I have any specific idea of what the future may bring, but I have a hunch that we haven't seen the last of the whole "media promoting blatant lies to get the public to support a war of imperial expansion" thing.)

    This is what comes of letting women vote. As soon as your back is turned it's that time of month and they are at the polls supporting all sorts of godless and liberal initiatives. Even Maine, Ohio and Mississippi are not safe.

        You're wise to be cautious. The People of AZ passed a really weird mixed bag of sane and insane referendum items. You'd almost think there was a split electorate at work.

    This issue pales in comparison to Washington State initiative 1183, which will allow me to buy my booze in 5-gallon jugs at Costco as opposed to the state-controlled liquor stores, which has lousy hours and no parking.

    Actually, come to think of it, Costco has lousy hours and terrible parking.

    Well, fuck.

    • DaRooster

      Costco has great parking… about a half mile away… to be fair, it is in their lot still.

      • anniegetyerfun

        I guess the three-mile hike to, around, and back from Costco will justify the 10 gallons of Kaluha that I intend to purchase.

    Well, it's certainly good news all around this morning. I wonder what the over/under is on how many hours until Ken Layne posts some utterly depressing piece of information as to how we're all going to be living in dishwasher boxes soon or the EPA is being absorbed by the Chamber of Commerce or Obama is making John Bolton SecDef or something.

    From the comments to the article:
    "The only thing this campaign has educated us on is how low and sleazy its proponents are. They are trying to win by stirring up hatred and bigotry. First it was immigrants, then it was college students, then it was Canadians and now homophobia."

    Apparently the Maine GOP hates immigrants, educated people and Canadians more than it hates gays. That's progress!

    (When I was a military cadet as a youngster I met other teenagers from across Canada. The New Brunswick cadets were always talking about how American Election Day was their favorite time of year. They would get all liquored up, then swim the St. Croix river and go vote for Democratic things. (The Democratic party would print up special waterproof voter guide sheets for them.) They didn't have Social Security numbers, Maine driver's licences, any form of proof of Maine address, and in fact every form of identification they had made it clear that they were from New Brunswick. But thanks to same-day voter registration, this was no obstacle. (Fortunately, some of the ID was in French, which made it easy to defraud honest but naive Maine election officials. The cadets were coached to say "Yes, it looks as if this is a New Brunswick drivers licence, but the French part takes it back. "Nouveau Brunswick" is French for "Correction: It's Maine, actually.") After the cadets, still dripping wet, had voted, a Democratic party official (a big guy wearing a Black Panther beret and carrying a truncheon) would give them a coin containing $100 worth of Nazi gold. (They knew because it was stamped on the coin: $100 In NAZI GOLD.) Then they would all have gay sex and go to college.)
