What’s wrong with this headline about Rob Portman, (R-Ohio)
Rob Portman Reverses Gay Marriage Stance After Son Comes Out
I’ll tell ya what’s wrong with it….it’s misleading for one thing. First of all, where was Rob Portman’s son when he came out? Where did he come out from? And how long was he in before he actually came out? Most importantly, why should we care if he came out at all? I go out all the time and nobody gives a rats ass and I certainly don’t make the headlines for going out.
So what’s the big deal with Portman’s son coming out? Other than he admitted to his father that he was gay.
Ohhhhhhhhhh…..THAT’S what he meant by coming out!
Actually that’s no big deal. For the most part, with the exception of many in the Republican party who still think the word “gay” should only be used when referring to the “Enola Gay” airplane that dropped a bomb on Hiroshima back in World War II. Excluding Rob Portman and Dick Cheney, who both have gay children, and now say, “Hey, yeah….gee whiz, golleeee, I now support gay marriages.”
Now a spelling lesson for Cheney and Portman.
Can you spell “hypocrites?” And, this has nothing to do with hippopotamus. I think.
I use the word “hypocrite” especially when it comes to Portman. Why you so innocently ask? I’ll tell ya.
Portman’s son Will, revealed that he was gay to his father and mother back in 2011 AD. At that particular time Portman was, according to the “Huffington Post” “openly hostile” towards gay rights and at one point led to hundreds of students at the University of Michigan objecting to the Senator’s speaking at the school’s graduation ceremony.
Once again folks….can you spell the word “hypocrite.”
Sooooo, now that Portman is no longer up for the second spot on the GOP Vice Presidential ticket and the election is over and Mitt what’s his name chose Paul Ryan as his running mate, SHAZAM! Portman has miraculously changed his stance on gays and gay marriage.
Geez….I wonder why the sudden change of heart here? (two years after his son admitted to him that he was gay)
Okay everyone….all together now….say….”DUH.”
In a very touching comment (two years too late) Portman said, “It allowed me to think of this issue from a new perspective, (no s**t Dick Tracy) and that’s of a dad who loves his son a lot and wants him to have the same opportunities that his brother and sister would have – to have a relationship like Jane and I have had for over 26 years.”
(Jane being HIS wife’s name and not Tarzan’s wife)
“But Senator…..what about all those other gay people who wanted to have the same thing a few years ago when you were against gay marriages?”
“Huh….um, er…..I don’t remember that.”
Altogether again folks…….”HYPOCRITE.” (you can actually say “hippopotamus if it makes you feel better because you think hypocrite is such an offending word)
Portman said that his son inspired him to reassess his position on same-sex marriage, along with consulting the clergy, former Vice President Dick Cheney, whose daughter Mary is openly gay, and several spirits who may or may not have appeared to him in his dreams. (just added that dream scenario because it might help his case when it comes to an excuse for suddenly seeing the light)
Now as for Portman’s record prior to having this amazing revelation. Which, as we all know, is the equivalent of a star rising in the East and three wise men knocking on Portman’s door bearing gifts.
In 1999 AD he voted for a measure prohibiting same-sex couples in Washington state from adopting children. NOW…with just days before the U.S. Supreme Court, (minus Diana Ross) is scheduled to hear arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act, Portman has seen da light.
BUT…after that protest at the University, a spokesman for Portman said this: “Rob believes marriage is a sacred bond between one man and one woman.” (the “one” man and “one” woman were not named).
Hmmm. How can I use the word hippopotamus again. Oh….sorry, I meant hypocrite.
Oh….yeah. When asked about his being a possible running mate for Mitt Romney and revealing to Mitt about his son and gay marriage he said, ” I told Mitt everything. That process is, intrusive would be one way to put it. But, no, yeah, I told him everything.”
One would tend to think that Romney, after hearing that Portman’s son was gay, may have chosen Paul Ryan over Portman…but…..that’s just a wild guess.
After all, Romney’s campaign told him that his son’s sexuality was not part of the decision to select Rep. Paul Ryan, (the guy with the zombie looking eyes) over Portman.
If Portman actually believed that…..I betcha I could sell him a bridge in Brooklyn really cheap.
The last statement in the article is soooooo touching. “I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married.”
(sniff….I’m tearing up)
“Ah seen a light! Ah surely have. And it’s a 100 watt bulb that went off in mah head when my son said that he was gay. Otherwise I’d say screw them gay marriage people.”
And the beat goes on…………
Tomorrow on MisfitWisdom. Congress passes a law that it’s perfectly ok to display your penis on Twitter thereby absolving Anthony Wiener from any misconduct and thereby allowing him to be a possible running mate for the Vice Presidency in 2016.
(NOTE) As of this posting Hillary Clinton has also reversed her stance on same-sex marriages and now supports them. Here’s part of that story from the Associated Press:
For those who lived “through the long years of the civil rights and women’s rights movements, the speed with which more and more people have come to embrace the dignity and equality of LGBT Americans has been breathtaking and inspiring,” Clinton said in a six-minute video, referring to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons.
In the video, released by the gay rights advocacy group Human Rights Campaign, Clinton says gays and lesbians are “full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship.”
“That includes marriage,” she says, adding that she backs gay marriage both “personally and as a matter of policy and law.”
(end of AP story)
Um, you might have noticed that Hillary did not say that she changed her mind because someone in her family admitted they were gay.
