Jumping on the bandwagon and posting about Jim McGreevey
I know that my friends page is already full of this breaking news. It seems that every friend of mine in the state, every former resident of the state, and every community about the state is full of multiple posts about this topic. I've already read some well worded statements by breeders, homos, right wing nutjobs, and liberal pussies. There's little I feel I have to say that someone hasn't already said better. petemagyar's already called me about it, agent179 came in to my office to tell me, and my boss blackbytes and her boss mrfantasy both messaged me about it. It's big news for this little state.

For those out of the loop (like assfingers), NJ's wonderful gov McGreevey announced his intent to resign later in the year. In the same speech, he admitted to being gay, having cheated on his second wife with another man. This is a man I have many ties with. He taught petemagyar how to swim, as well as most of his brothers. He might have taught me some form, but I couldn't swim with my glasses most of the time I was there, so I wouldn't know. Over the years that he served as my mayor and state senator, I've shaken his hand dozens of times and spoken with him at various functions. My father and stepmother worked with him on some causes, and got his support on a few things. He graduated from my high school, and was very close with Brother Regis. The first time he ran against Whitman was the first time he had lost an election in his life, counting high school government elections. He was the reason I first registered as a democrat (before switching to libertarian), to vote for him in a primary.

All I ask is that people read what he actually said before jumping to any conclusions. That's all.

Read more here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, or here.

And the Catholic church was talking about denying him mass over abortion. I bet that's the least of their worries regarding him now.

I totally love him! When I first moved here I hated him. Then I started to like him but I fought it. Then I liked him, and now I am so sad that he is going to resign.

As am I. I wish he'd let the people or courts decide his fate instead.

He cheated on his wife, and nominated his lover for an important position he wasn't qualified for. That's not cool at all, I agree completely.

But a lot of people on both sides are making it look like homosexuality is the issue, which will force some hands and get some interesting real feelings out of people.

To all of those who laughed at me when Massachusetts allowed gay marriages all I have to say is, Tah Ha

What the fuck do you mean ``Tah Ha'', you homophobic close-minded moronic bigot? You should be proud of Assachusetts leading the cause instead of hanging your head in shame. Hang your head in shame for pissing yourself twice, you flaming angry closet case, not for your state's progressive social stance.

Geez calm down. You are overreacting more than Towel Boy. I discussed a bit of my gay marriage viewpoints here http://www.livejournal.com/users/thesteamer/1344.html
back right before May 17th when it became legal. The Tah Ha was to the people who laughed at me for Massachusetts allowing gay marriages, cause it is now very ironic that something like this happens to them. It was like they thought that New Jersey was immune from ever being affected by the increasing homosexual movement, which is obviously not the case.

Why should I hang my head in shame over that? If I had the opportunity to go back in time and change it, I would. But I can't so instead I have the ability to mock myself over it instead. Much better than walking around feeling sorry for myself because I got drunk and pissed all over myself.

But just remember to breathe, it will be ok.

You make sense, but I think Dan Savage the cocksucker makes more sense.

it's funny because you could have shook his hand after it had just been up some dude's ass. how cool is that?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: August 18th, 2004 09:38 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
True. But I doubt he was fisting in the park or at town meetings.

Not all of them are. Some people have yet to understand. Like this one.
