Politics makes for strange bedfellows

The subject of an email from the Badnarik campaing that showed up in my inbox yesterday made me almost shoot Diet Coke from my nostrils. It read WE'RE HERE, WE'RE QUEER ... AND WE'RE VOTING LIBERTARIAN. It seems the Pink Pistols a group of gun-toting gays has endorsed Badnarik for his stand on the 2nd Amendment.

I find it interesting that groups that might have gone squarely into the Demoncratic camp have decided to shift their allegiance to the Libertarians. While their sexuality may disagree with your religious views, they have the same rights to life, liberty and property that we all have.

"We're excited to endorse the only candidate in this election who stands for equal rights – and the means to defend those rights – for everyone," Douglas L. Krick, founder of Pink Pistols, said in a statement. "With the 'major' parties competing to see who can be most strident in encouraging different standards for the queer communities, it's more important than ever that we stand up for ourselves – and support candidates who stand with us."

And once again it proves that politics makes for strange bedfellows indeed.

Don't you just look so studly in your tight leather pants with your Mauser Broomstick!
