I wonder if Pat Buchanan thinks that Ronald Reagan had a secret gay agenda? Buchanan along with other conservatives are blaming their loss on California's Proposition 8 on Judge Vaughn Walker's homosexuality.
Pat Buchanan: It is unnatural….an older white guy handed down the decision and he happened to be gay. That might have had something to do with it.
Ironically, Walker was nominated to the bench by President Ronald Reagan and re-nominated and confirmed under President George H. W. Bush. Two dozen House Democrats, led by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “opposed his nomination because of his alleged ‘insensitivity’ to gays and the poor.” The Democrats objected to Walker’s role in representing the U.S. Olympic Committee “in its successful effort to prevent an athletic competition in San Francisco from being called the Gay Olympic Games” and for “putting a lien on the home of a gay-games leader who was dying of AIDS.”
I guess Pat thinks only crusty old straight white guys are qualified to decide whether gay people can get married. MSNBC needs to show this relic the door.
