Democrat Pissed He Can't Be Gay for McCain

Craig Brownstein of Edelman PR in Washington says he's a reported McCain supporter who went to the campaign's website and was rejected when he tried to order a personalized sign professing his support according to The Examiner:

Mccainbush"Although $25 will get you 'Jewish Americans for McCain' or 'Business Leaders for McCain' (or most any other variation) T-shirts on McCain’s campaign Web site, if you give 10 times that amount — $250 — you’ll have much less, not more, luck getting a personalized sign. [Brownstein] headed to McCain’s presidential Web site to make a contribution and noticed that, for $250, the McCain campaign’s store would create a customized 3-by-6-foot outdoor banner for Brownstein...The purchase went through, but "a few hours later...Brownstein received a call from a woman fulfilling the McCain store’s orders, and she informed Brownstein that the text was not approved. 'I was told it could only be personalized with names,' said Brownstein (they would, for instance, accept 'Craig and Doug for John McCain')."

Why is this a surprise coming from a man who's afraid of gay sweaters? And the more obvious question — why a proud gay Democrat would want to profess his love for John McCain...

For signage, money gets you nowhere [the examiner]

  1. Gay is a name in France - and is short for Gabriel in some countries. "Gay for McCain" - do for it!

  2. Hell, I'd be a little 'gay' for McCain if he'd agree to drop out of the campaign. I'm man enough to take (an awful) 'one for the team'. Or maybe it's that I don't want to have my tax dollars pay for his impending heart valve replacements, nitro tablets, or one of his and Larry Craig's airport-Viagra binges for 4 years. I wonder if they would make a sign for someone using their drag name; I'd love that for my front yard as long as I can pose in full drag with my local bar co-workers and post it online - what fun that trend could turn out to be!

  3. Are you REALLY surprised by this?? Yet, the LCR will still be behind him. Go figure!

  4. First, I'm glad this guy got what he deserved. Any self-professed "Gay Democrat for McCain" clearly has a lot of major problems, and it's good of the McCain campaign (first and last time I'll ever say that phrase) to point out his delusions. He should learn sooner rather than later that free speech and gay support are not a priority for Republicans.

    Second, that photo of McCain hugging Bush is the most revolting image of male affection I've ever seen.

  5. The woman who told him his sign was rejected is my new hero.

  6. He's obviously filled with self-hatred and delusional. Why, he should be commited to a institution for re-education. Doesn't he know that he will be one of the first rounded up and sent to a gulag by the republicans.

  7. I'm sure they'd reject "KKK for McCain", though perhaps Michael Moore should try ordering that one. "Osama Bin Laden for Barack Obama"? Is there a way to test the other side?

  8. Dear, are you equating gays with the KKK and a terrorist? Naughty, naughty.

  9. "A proud gay, democrat for McCain." Man, how many oxymorons can you fit in one sentence?

  10. This guy is a moron. What did he think was going to happen? Is he the same person going to be asking why McCain is talking badly about the gays in the future. That should have swayed his vote right then!
