Worthy of a thread of its own, I like to call it The Sarah Palin Cooler, enjoy!

If John McCain keeps this guy on as his chief of staff, does Sarah Palin still get to be raptured?
Who is the bigger hypocrite here?
Mark Buse, an openly gay man who is spending his life helping John McCain block important gay civil rights issues like marriage and adoption?
Or John McCain, who obviously has no problem with gay folks, but has adopted an anti-gay platform out of political expediency and a desire to court people like Sarah Palin, who think that if they just hate enough, they’ll be Raptured into the love of Jesus when the End Times come.
Mark Buse is obviously a man of some ability. It ain’t nothing to get yourself a position as chief of staff to a powerful senator and presidential candidate.
A pity that he is wasting his talents fighting against his gay and Lesbian brothers and sisters. And against everyone else who stands in solidarity for civil rights for all.
It’s also a pity for us.
Because his efforts have contributed to the endless delays, damages and humiliations caused to gay and Lesbian Americans as we wait to achieve a full and equal status as citizens of the U.S.
