Arizona Senate Loser Pearce Plays Gay Boy Scout Card in Sour Grapes Diatribe: VIDEO


Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce went on Greta van Susteren's show on FOX Thursday night to whine about being beaten by fellow Republican Jerry Lewis in the recall election Tuesday, the Phoenix New Times reports:

Van Susteren asked Pearce whether he and Lewis are friends. He responded by launching into a tirade about recall elections, boy scouts, and homosexuals.

"That's a stretch. We're not enemies, but that's a stretch. It's just not true. He opposes SB-1070, he supports the Dream Act. He supports gays in Boy Scouts. He's endorsed by the Democrats. We are at opposite ends of this issue. So that's a stretch," Pearce says.


Via Kenneth Walsh, who writes:

I'm told by a reader in Mesa that his successor, Jerry Lewis, "is truly one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. Always smiling, upbeat, not a bad word ever spoken. A teacher/businessman. He's a Republican but Dems, independents, moderate Republicans and thinking-Mormons got behind him. What a coalition! The Pearce folks threw everything at him including a padlock to the crotch from a car when he was jogging. Lots of mud they even accused him from stealing used clothing off the backs of homeless kids. What a bunch of assholes."

  2. When you quote Kenneth Walsh, you really detract from the quality of your fine blog. There must be some other LGBT commentator, one who doesn't routinely slur the disabled, you could go to for things Arizona.

  6. Van Susteren takes hideousness to a new level. As for the yahoo, let him crawl back under his rock and dream up more groups to demonize.

  7. Its is astonishing that 32 years after reagan, these old blowhards are still using the same manual to get votes. and its taken the american voting public 32 years to figure out that the right's mantra of "God, Guns and Gays (or bashing any outsider)" wont put food on your table. Its merely a distraction and a way for rethugs to divide us just enough so that they can squeak into office. pathetic on many levels
