Bob McDonnell Cited Michael ‘Porn Makes You Gay’ Schwartz in His 1989 Thesis

Blogger Lowell Feld notices that Michael Schwartz — the longtime conservative activist-turned-Hill staffer whom I heard wax poetic about the gay-making powers of pornography — was cited twice in Bob McDonnell’s notorious 1989 thesis. The Republican candidate for governor of Virginia cited Schwartz twice, once on an article Schwartz wrote about daycare, once for a piece of political thinking about the “division between those whose conservatism is defined by dollar signs and those whose conservatism is rooted in the family.”

As I wrote on Monday, McDonnell’s suddenly-embattled campaign provided an ironic context to the Values Voter Summit. The graduate of Pat Robertson’s Regent University had kept social issues out of the race for governor, and climbed up to a double-digit poll lead. The news of his extremely conservative thesis brought his numbers back down to earth.

Oh my word…do the Republicans get any more ingnorant?? Where have these people been? Everybody knows porn doesn't turn you gay…but listening to the brilliant, well informed and every so charming Rachael Maddow has turned hoardes of thinking women gay. Yeah baby!

Red-staters, join us over here in the middle or on the left. Aren't any of you thoughtful righties tired of being the nations laughing stock?

How is it possible that anyone so ignorant could hold any public service job in this country?

McDonnell belongs in a cave with his brothers in the Taliban. This man is not appropriate to be a crossing guard. He needs to leave politics and find a good therapist. A person this far removed from reality cannot represent the interests of the public. There are already enough unstable people in Congress and in teabagger groups harassing the President. Rev.

McDonnell’s core values are on display in his thesis…. a veneer of denial is being constructed by his campaign

righties hate porn because it shows people having sex and enjoying it, contrary to their own sexual experiences

The depths of ignorance is staggering. “Republican” is, I believe, becoming an epithet, or it should be. At least, that's how I view it. The national debate on, well… everything, is devolving into ridiculous hyperbole informed thanks to Fox “news.” I'm a pretty level headed person, but I've begun to think I should be afraid of how many people actually believe crap like this and that which spews forth from the likes of Rush Limbaugh, James Dobson, and Glen Beck.

Straight people who have been infected w/The HIV can ALWAYS trace the disease to some gay person. Even that poor kid Ryan White who died of AIDS after a transfusion in California. Some peterpuffin'-fudgepacker sold his blood to live another day & continue his depraved acts. Ryan got that blood. This gaystuff is a major threat to our nation as serious as abortion. According to an AOL poll, 85% of all Americans believe that Obama's birth certificate needs to be produced.

We have all been fond of office 2007 professional plus furniture haven’t we? With ms windows 7  designs available in all parts of Windows 7 Ultimate, Internet is one medium to choose the best Cheap Windows 7 at competitive prices and that too at a store near your Office 2010 Professional. Below http://hohosoftware.wordpress.com summarize some Microsoft Office 2010 to help you choose the best Office 2007 Enterprise for your corporate as well as office 2007 product key : Generally, while http://hohosoftware.blogspot.com are searching Office 2007 Key, we just type in our window 7  and start browsing the http://peaksoftwares.blogspot.com which appear in the Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise. But here is the Cheap Windows 7 : most of the searches we do without specifying a location with the purchase windows 7 , we end up wasting our time. Let http://peaksoftwares.wordpress.com take an example of windows 7 download . Now people go to Google and type “Windows 7 Ultimate ” and start browsing the Buy Windows 7 . They spend a lot of time finalizing Download Windows 7  but when they decide to contact the Win 7  for the price quotes and delivery time, they generally end up realizing that the Microsoft Windows 7  from which they had selected the Windows 7 , belongs to a different country and the buy microsoft office 2007 cannot export to a their Windows 7 Professional. The simple solution to Windows 7 Professional  would have been, assuming that the Buy Windows 7 buyer resides in India, to search for the keyword “Microsoft Windows 7 India” or “Windows 7 Home Premium  in India” instead of the keyword “Download Office 2010” because when the buyer searched for “buy office 2007”, sites from different countries showed up, microsoft office professional 2010 plus might have had good designs Office 2007 download were not available in window 7 but they were of no use. The purchase windows 7 advantage of using a location such as Office 2007 Ultimate, in case it suits the buyers, office professional 2007 plus can go and checkout their Office 2007 Key and maybe get a better design microsoft office downloads has recently become popular but is not ms office 2007 professional on the website.
