Glad I’m Not In His Shoes

Imagine the headline: “Wyoming Republican Praised Nationally.” Sounds pretty cool until you see the rest of the headline “for Gay Stance.”

Dan Zwonitzer is both Republican and straight, but the 27-year-old state representative suddenly has found himself praised by gay-rights activists nationwide.

Zwonitzer, R-Cheyenne, spoke out in a legislative committee against a measure that would have allowed Wyoming to deny recognition of gay marriages granted by other states or countries

Zwonitzer told the House Rules Committee on Feb. 22 that he needed to publicly oppose the measure – even if it cost him his seat – because he believed that was the right thing to do. He told the committee that gay rights were the civil-rights struggle of his generation.

I will tell my children that when this debate went on, I stood up for basic rights for people,” he said.

Isn’t that great! another weak-kneed Republicrat that thinks we he needs to not be so conservative in order to be buddies with the libs.

And it appears the homosexual crowd remembered John Kerry’s comments in ’04:

“I mistakenly thought many people in Dick Cheney’s home state didn’t support equality for me as a gay man,” said Michael Petrelis, a gay blogger, Green Party member and AIDS activist from San Francisco.

“That was the thing that surprised many of us in the San Francisco gay community, that this pro-gay development happened in Dick Cheney’s home state.”

We must remember, the Vice President’s daughter is the one whom the controversy is about and she doesn’t even live in Wyoming! Can we please remember that there are plenty of Republicans (yea, even Wyoming Republicans) that disagree with the choice made by Mary Cheney (even if she does take a pro-life stance?)
