State Republican Chairwoman Robin Smith gay-baiting

From the TN Republican Party via Mr. Kleinheider:

Upon entering a reception these evening, committee members presented their challenges pursuant to the Tennessee Republican Party Bylaws. “Action will begin immediately to address the actions of Rep. Kent Williams,” responded Robin Smith, TN Republican Party Chairman. “His commitment today was not to Republican Principles, but to the blind and shameless pursuit of personal power. He cast his vote for a Pro-Tax, Pro-Gay, Pro-Abortion, Anti-Gun Liberal Democrat to preside in leadership against all 49 of his Republican colleagues.”

Well, there you have it. I suppose we're now supposed to believe that they intended to focus on the budget and on education this session. How vile! Ms. Smith, there are two alternatives to "pro-gay." One of them is where most voters are--indifference. The other alternative is "anti-gay." Which one motivates you? Please, don't ever say that you have a gay friend. Friends don't work their butts off to make their friends second class in the eyes of the law. A former member of the State Human Rights Commission who attacks minorities. Tsk, tsk.
