Holy Joe licks his chops at the thought of helping to re-elect his doppleganger, homophobic Chris Shays (endorsed by HRC)

I think Jim Himes made the case why he'd be a great replacement for rubber stamp Republican Chris Shays really well when he visited Firedoglake for a live blog session on July 28. Apparently the folks at HRC were still busy reading the hate mail they've been getting for helping homophobic Republican shill Joe Lieberman slip back into office. HRC is up to the same old tricks.

Aside from being a general rubber stamp for the entire toxic Bush Republican agenda, Shays has voted 4 times on specific legislation that impacted gay men and lesbians directly. Guess how many times Shays had to vote pro-gay in order to earn HRC's endorsement. Zero times. He was 4 for 4 rubber stamping the far right, homophobic agenda of intolerance and bigotry. Is that what HRC stands for?

At least another of HRC's horrible endorsements this year, Al Wynn (D-MD) voted for gay rights once out of the 4 times. HRC sure sells their endorsement cheap. Is today the right time to tell HRC to go screw themselves? I smashed the award they gave me and removed them from my will when they endorsed Lieberman. Not much more I can do, I'd recommend that people use this opportunity to donate to Jim Himes' and Donna Edwards' campaigns. And you can do both here at the Blue America ActBlue page.

Don't have a will to cut HRC out of, but it's nice to have another reason to confront the attractive young HRC clipboarders in the Castro. I've been explaining to each of them why HRC is unacceptable due to its endorsement of RGJoe; it'll be exciting to add this new, and heinous, endorsement of Chris Shays to my conversations.

"No I won't sign your damn petition or join your stupid Human Rights Club -- you endorsed Joe Lieberman last year and he wants to bomb Iran!!" (at bear-volume 11)

"And now your little club has endorsed Chris Shays and he's voted against gays and lesbians four times out of four!" (at bear-volume 11)

So Shays didn't vote the way you wanted. Whooptie-friggin' doo. Perhaps he's voting the way his constituents want him to vote. Are YOU from the 4th District of Connecticut?

Shays actually has a good record on LGBT issues. He was a prime sponsor of the trans-inclusive version of ENDA introduced earlier this year and supports repealing
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell". I'd trust the Washington Blade before you:
