The GOP in the West is keeping up with the party’s efforts to broaden its base and offer an open tent by offending everyone in sight (from the Spokesman-Review):
Idaho Republican Party leaders are calling on the state Legislature to invalidate local city ordinances that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation — like the one Coeur d’Alene passed after an emotional community debate just two weeks ago.
Six Idaho cities have passed such non-discrimination ordinances in the past year and a half, and a seventh, Idaho Falls, is looking into one now; the Idaho GOP wants them halted. …
Cornel Rasor, a former Bonner County commissioner and chairman of the Idaho GOP’s resolutions committee, said, “I’d hire a gay guy if I thought he was a good worker. But if he comes into work in a tutu … he’s not producing what I want in my office.”
I’ve been working and hiring for a lot of years. So far, no one — straight or gay, male or female — has shown up for work in a tutu. People in Idaho must be kinkier than I thought if it’s happening there.
Let the skewering begin!
