Congressional Candidate: Gays=Short People
Republican congressional candidate Sean Bielat has a simple logic problem for you here: If men shorter than 5'2" can't serve in military combat,why should gays get to? "I don't see anybody protesting. Where are the people standing in front of the White House, the short guys standing in front of the White House? You don't see it," Bielat said, apparently unaware of the birther rally that was on the Mall this past weekend. This is the man who is running against Barney Frank. What ever happened to the LaRouchie who was running against Frank and called Obama a Nazi? That lady seems like a sober arbiter of political facts now. But never mind, some people are actually saying Bielat could win this.
A new Boston Globe poll puts Barney Frank ahead of his GOP challenger, Sean Bielat, by a 46 to 33 percent margin. That may sound like good news for the incumbent, until you consider that Frank, who was first elected in 1980, has never won a general election by fewer than 20 points -- and that he's notched at least 64 percent of the vote in every race since 1990.
