Love that Laffey Taffy

Republican Rhode Island Senate candidate Stephen Laffey, who is running to the right against moderate incumbent Senator Lincoln Chafee in the GOP primary, has come under fire for anti-gay writings he now calls "sophomoric political satire". I think the irony is that at the time he actually thought what he was writing was "funny". Here's a sampling:
This is not to say there aren't any; I simply haven't seen one in my lifetime. Maybe they are all in the closet. All the homosexuals I've seen are sickly and decrepit, their eyes devoid of life.

ROTFLMAO!

Um, not really. No, that is not satire. That is bigotry, Mr. Laffey. But thanks for playing the game.
