GOP Chair Michael Steele Thinks Civil Unions are Crazy to Consider

Michael Steele is not taking the progressive steps as the new GOP leader. Just this Sunday, he went on Mike Gallagher's radio show and stated his views about civil unions.

GALLAGHER: Is this a time when Republicans ought to consider some sort of alternative to redefining marriage and maybe in the road, down the road to civil unions. Do you favor civil unions?

STEELE: No, no no. What would we do that for? What are you, crazy? No. Why would we backslide on a core, founding value of this country? I mean this isn’t something that you just kind of like, “Oh well, today I feel, you know, loosey-goosey on marriage.” […]

But don't take it from me, you can hear it here

He just keeps saying dumb stuff that makes no sense. I dislike him more and more all the time.

Unfortunately, I get a gay vibe from that slimeball. Anyone else?

I don't know what core founding value he is making up this time, but it's Michele Steele role to say these things and make it look as if it's just not the typical Republican.

Like the choice of Sarah Palin the GOP got it wrong again.

But you know what's weird, John McCain's daughter is going to give a speech for the Log Cabins. I think Steele needs to work on sticking to a message, and the Log Cabins should stop having to use the back door.
