    Sadly, that’s the best candidate money can buy for the Republicans in Ohio. And outside groups have given him more than $20 million dollars. He now so indebted to outside groups he won’t have time to represent anyone from Ohio because he’ll be busy protecting his money men.

    Watch his Fox and Friends interview on YouTube.

    He says the phrase “shoving down the throats” four freaking times.

    He’s a future toe-tapper or wide-stancer for sure.

    We need a moratorium on closeted homosexuals running for office on anti-gay platforms. Perhaps a litmus test: Would you fit right into Log Cabin or GoProud without losing a beat? Will you be “out and proud” in 5 years?

    Perhaps a moratorium on “stupid’ as well. You can’t advocate for people — any people — and simultaneously oppose their basic rights. Can anyone say “cognitive dissonance?”

    Josh Mandel is an opportunistic piece of slime that runs for the sake of running and the Rethuglican super-PACS have poured in nearly 30 not 20 million dollars to defeat Senator Brown. Mandel is a snarky, nasty bitter man who will do or say anything to get elected. His commercials run non-stop in Cleveland and Columbus and is trying to buy the election because he has no beliefs that haven’t been forged by goons who control the purse strings.

    *Sigh* Why do they even bother? Hiding in the closet kind of implies that you can successfully pass for straight. This guy doesn’t have a prayer. If there was a yard-high neon sign over his head, flashing on and off and reading HOMO, it wouldn’t be much more obvious.

    Seems like “representing everyone” has become a necessary talking point, but empty promise. Even if his intention is to represent everyone (doubtful), the pressure from his Republican colleagues and his deep-pocketed funders to advance the Tea Party false Christian agenda will make that impossible.

    Bottom line: you are lying – you cannot represent everyone when holding such bigoted views.

    How does one protect and support all tax-paying citizens while keeping some from entering into private marriage contracts as well as serving in the military?

    I don’t think that it is fair to call him gay or closeted just because he is young and boyish. The stereotype does not always apply. But it is certainly reasonable to call him an idiot if he really thinks that he can represent a certain demographic while actively trying to push that demographic back into a closet and then nail the door shut.

    oh, no doubt GOProud masturbate furiously to this bigoted sack of s**t.

    his paternal grandfather similarly said “I don’t believe y’all negroes should be free, but I promise to represent y’alls, sorta, and stand up for you, as slaves. which i thinks you should bes”

    so piss off.

    Most people are unaware that Josh always wears frilly, lacey panties with “don’t tread on me” printed all over them. Most nights he dry humps his Romney/Ryan yard banner. He told me once (at a leather bar) he has to be spanked by a heavy wooden paddle to achieve his full two inch erection. He lures hairy dominant daddy types by shaving his boyish body. When you take away his pacifier, he cries and begs for it’s return. That’s why he gets my vote for self loathing, deeply closeted gay politician.

    It is laughable that the Koch Bros etc spent sooo much money on defeating Sen. Brown and backing this kid. As an Ohioan, I can tell you that anti-Brown ads have been running non-stop for well over a year by outside groups and lol, Brown will prevail! BIG waste of money.

    According to fact checkers, Mandel has the same problem with truth that the national ticket does. He’s also something of a Palin in that he’s hoping to leave his job as Treasurer of Ohio before his term is over. (After promising to finish it before seeking another elective office…)
