Daniel sent me a funny article in response to my Planned Parenthood post. “Read your blog this morning. The article below seems apropo. I don’t know anything else about this guy that is not in the article below, but I like him.”
You can read the full article by Brian Montopoli on the CBS News website here. But here are some of my favorite quotes from former Senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.).
“Who the hell is for abortion? I don’t know anybody running around with a sign that says, ‘Have an abortion, they’re wonderful.’ They’re hideous. But they’re a deeply intimate and personal decision, and I don’t think men legislators should even vote on the issue.”
“Then you’ve got homosexuality,” he continued. “You’ve got ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We have homophobes in our party. That’s disgusting to me. We’re all human beings, we’re all God’s children.
Simpson added that “I’m not sticking with people who are homophobic, anti-women, you know, moral values while you’re diddling your secretary, while you’re giving a speech on moral values. Come on, get off of it.”
