(Talking Points Memo)   Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GAy) doesn't support marriage equality for one simple reason: he isn't gay. Though with a name like "Saxby Chambliss," he's well on his way   (livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 111

What do you call it when you feel the need to go on national TV and make an unsolicited, unprovoked comment that you're not gay?

One anagram for Saxby Chambliss is:

Bash Clams By Six

HE HATES WOMEN!!!1

Saxby is retiring.  It is the only good thing he has done for the non-rich people of Georgia in his entire tenure.
 
2013-03-21 10:18:52 AM  
He defended his consistency, saying he's also not female, Mexican, black or poor, and you don't see him going out of his way to help those people either.

D'OH!

Stupid Saxby Chambliss.

He's not a woman either, but that didn't stop him marrying one of them

he's nothing if not straightforward.

Brilliant.

On another note, this is the second political story in a row where a TPM aggregation of another site's story has been greenlit. Good for TPM, not so good for the people who actually did the reporting.

And Saxby is supposed to be the most moderate GOP Southern Senator.

The mental image I get off his name is some deep south, southern dandy plantation owner.

Can someone translate that from idiot to English?  Does he really not know the difference between optional and mandatory?
 
2013-03-21 11:50:10 AM  
Because if marriage equality makes any more progress those gays are going to force all the straights to marry gays.  Yep, that's what they're going to do and so I don't support gay marriage.

/ what a moron.
 
2013-03-21 11:50:49 AM  
Is that really what he said? For the long time, the argument on the left was that conservatives against gay marriage should remember that they aren't being forced to participate in one. Now he's basically saying the same thing. Seems to me that he just knows which way the wind is blowing.

What's wrong with being Saxby?
 
2013-03-21 11:51:49 AM  
1. "Fark you, I got mine" - the mating call of the Republican.

2. Dude's as queer as a three dollar bill.
 
2013-03-21 11:52:09 AM  
When asked if his views had changed on gay marriage, the Georgia Republican quipped: "I'm not gay. So I'm not going to marry one."

...WHAT THE FARK DOES THAT MEAN? That's not a quip, that's an embolism that results in random words being strung together. The "reporter" should've asked if he needed immediate medical attention.

Rapmaster2000: And Saxby is supposed to be the most moderate GOP Southern Senator.


Seriously? The guy won by insinuating that a triple amputee veteran was the same as Osama Bin Laden.

And yet you're probably right. He probably is the most moderate of the GOP southern senators.

God help us all.

Guilty dog barks first.
 
2013-03-21 11:55:18 AM  
It's interesting. He could have said virtually the same thing in order to voice his support for gay marriage.

"I'm not gay, so I'm not going to marry one."
"Don't like gay marriage? Don't have one."


What's the difference between these two expressions, really? Isn't the one just the first person version of the other? Yet, apparently, Saxby used his version to say he does not support gay marriage.

Interesting.
 
2013-03-21 11:55:19 AM  
Goddamnit so much, Saxby. Grow some empathy.

FloydA: Can someone translate that from idiot to English?  Does he really not know the difference between optional and mandatory?


From what I see of conservative opinions, no, he probably doesn't.  To them, everything is either mandatory or banned, like abortion (not banned, therefore mandatory), school prayer (not mandatory, therefore banned), and gay marriage (if un-banned, will then necessarily be mandatory).  They don't know how to think for themselves or make their own decisions, so just assume that all laws are telling them how to live their lives rather than giving them options as to how to choose to live their lives.

Yep... and it's because everyone in his party moved right and he didn't:  http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/01/25/saxby_chambliss_the_mode r ate_we_never_knew.html

Now that is some weapons grade stupid...

Maybe he really thinks making it legal means he has to marry a man.

Old people get soft headed and everywhere they go fox news is on.

The fact that he would feel any pressure to marrying a man is quite revealing I would say.

First one is quite literally saying "I don't favor gay marriage because I am not gay and it doesn't not affect me therefore I don't care but I care enough to actively oppose it because."
 
2013-03-21 12:00:36 PM  
Hey Saxby... I got news for you: you weren't elected to write laws for yourself, you were elected to write laws for EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY. That includes people who aren't like you and don't share your beliefs. You know, being that this is a free country and all.

But therein lies the problem.... Theocratic statists don't like freedom. Saxby, and the rest of the GOP schmucks standing in the way of civil rights again, use freedom as a rhetorical tool with their words and stomp all over freedom as a real principle with their actions.

The GOP of today hates freedom.
 
2013-03-21 12:01:05 PM  
Does this surprise anyone?

The GOP on abortion: I'm not a woman, so I don't think anyone should have an abortion either.
The GOP on voter rights: I'm not black, so I don't think there's racism in America.
The GOP on Medicare: I'm not poor, so I don't think we need it.
 
2013-03-21 12:02:24 PM  
Sounds like Larry Craig: I am not gay so I am not going to marry one, I will just blow one in the airport bathroom.

oldernell: Saxby is retiring.  It is the only good thing he has done for the non-rich people of Georgia in his entire tenure.


Is he? Thank God. Isakson can be hit or miss (he is actually responsible for the section of the PPACA that was going to allow for Medicare coverage of living will consultations but scattered when that was removed from the bill as "death panels") but Chambliss is someone I genuinely find to be a terrible person for his behavior. Even in those situations where he's right for all the wrong reasons (he's done some pushing against executive secrecy on matters of national security after being all for empowering Bush) I can't even give him partial credit just based on his campaign against Max Cleland (a triple amputee Vietnam vet who was also a big supporter of the War on Terror, yet still got smeared as weak on Defense.)
 
2013-03-21 12:09:13 PM  
An un-American piece of garbage who slandered the good name of a man who served his country while Saxby hid out in a country club.

monoski: Sounds like Larry Craig: I am not gay so I am not going to marry one, I will just blow one in the airport bathroom.


Seems reasonable: How can you legislate on something without knowing what is involved. He was just conscientiously doing research before deciding his stance on the issue.

FTFY, Senator.

He doesn't want gays to marry or to be recognized as normal for the same reason the rest of the Republican Threes don't.  If being gay is OK, then kids growing up as threes or higher will be OK and out and grow up with relatively normal behavior & relationship patterns.  That means very few people on the other side of that lovely little waist-high hole...
 
2013-03-21 12:15:00 PM  
So because it doesn't affect you, you're against it?

// it'll be a fine day when the GOP embraces the concept of "benign neglect"
