Log Cabin Head Tries To Explain Hagel Opposition On Fox News: VIDEO


Another day, another story about Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel. Today's tale, or the first one of today, there will probably be more, is about interim Log Cabin Republican leader Gregory T. Angelo discussing the group's opposition with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.

So, why does the gay GOP group oppose Hagel? "Because we're Republican," says Angelo, as if there's an unspoken rule all Republicans must agree on all things at all times.

O'Reilly also asked Angelo whether a potential cabinet official who opposes homosexuality for religious reasons should be disqualified, to which Angelo responded, "We don't have a litmus test." He also talked up his group's new advertisement in The Hill.

Meanwhile, JK Trotter at The Atlantic Wire wrote a story called "Chuck Hagel's Evolution on Gay Rights Is Tearing the Log Cabin Republicans Apart," and it goes a little something like this: "Of the many reactions to Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel's comments about an ambassador nominee being 'aggressively gay'... by far the most vexing, and internally divisive, stem from the Log Cabin Republicans." If there's one lesson to be learned from this whole Hagel thing it is that opportunism is alive and well in America.

Watch O'Reilly and Angelo talk Hagel and homosexuality AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Kiwi : I know you don't see much of the world beyond your parents' backyard and your own imagination, but, here's some reality for you: Listen close: some gays hate blacks and liberals because their parents were "pro-black" and liberal, and they reject everything about their parents. You have it backwards.

  2. Neo-cons hate Hagel because he voiced opposition to their insane Iraq war, in 2007, and they have never forgiven him. By the way, most of these neo-cons are chicken hawks, meaning they talk a big game about war (and willing for other Americans to spill their blood) but most of them have never served in the U.S. Armed Services. Cheney, Reagan, Kristol, & Romeny are good examples of this breed. Hagel might have been anti-gay in the past, but he has evolved and apologized, and served his country as an enlisted man who volunteered for duty in Vietnam. He might be a bit arrogant and sometimes disagreeable, but I believe him to be a fair and courageous man.
