This quote from Peter King in a Politico piece on the Republicans ignoring the Prop 8 ruling is shockingly blunt:
King, the Long Island congressman, said that in terms of social issues, the raging controversy over the Arizona border laws is providing more than enough ammunition for Republicans in key districts.
“The Arizona immigration law is there, there’s no reason to be raising an issue of gay rights” as a wedge, he said.
No need to do the election year gay bashing, because the GOP is getting their hate on for brown people. Charming.
You don’t catch them openly admitting to stuff like this very often.
