Remember Alex's post from a couple of weeks ago asking what we should call gay "Uncle Toms" who work against their own community? It's time to add a new nominee to the list of self-serving assholes who's more worried about his own career than his community.

Mark_Buse.jpgJohn McCain's new Senate campaign manager, Mark Buse, is a gay man who also served McCain's Senate Chief of Staff. Both Michelangelo Signorile and Mike Rogers outed Buse during the 2008 Presidential campaign.

McCain does not support the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, voted against ENDA, voted against hate crimes legislation and voted in favor of DOMA. But who's helping him hang on to power? A cowardly sniveling little gay bastard, that's who.

Apparently Buse is a thoughtless top. At least he could kiss us before he fucks us.

We've had Arthur Finkelsetin, who was the architect of the anti marriage campaigns for the Repub's and then went off to get married in Mass

We've had Santorum's Chief of Staff

We've had Ruben Diaz's Chief of Staff

All of the great political homophobes seem to have had queer people enabling the persecution of us.

Oh back the hell up. Santorum's minion was gay? ...Ok, I live in PA. I'm trying to think of something to say that doesn't end in me wanting violence but how the fuck could any LGBTQ person work for that miserable piece of scum?
Hell, on that matter did Santorum know? I mean, he'd actually have one of us work for him?
There are so many levels of wrong with people like this (both Santorum/McCain and the Auntie Toms (what? No good? it's the best I could manage in three seconds)). How much self-loathing does it take to be able to work for someone who actively denies you your rights? Seriously, what the hell?!

Santorum knew all about it and hypocritically 'supported' his aide when he was outed.

Oh yeah, we remember Ol' Ricky boy...we sent him packing a few years ago! He had a gay minion?!?!? That's a new one on me!

The difference between GLBT Republicans and their Democrat cousins who advocated for Clinton and Obama is a party label. Nothing more.

The difference between Obama, a failed President in way over his head and McCain, a rancid rightwinger moving right is that McCains honest about it.

The reason for the differing positions on DADT can be explained by the fact that Obama spends all his time cowering in the WH. Obama is not worried about the GLBT vote. He worries about the bigot vote.

Pelosi does worry about the GLBT vote. If Democrats continue to ignore our agenda the size of our vote in SF could lose her the election either to a protest vote or a larger than normal boycott of elections.

For the first time in years, McCain is dangerously close to losing a primary election. "McCain continues to lead the hotly contested GOP Primary contest, but his level of support is stuck in a narrow range between 47% and 53%."

Gates represents the christer, homohating dominationist wing of the officer korps that appears to run the war department, no matter the views of Congress or the WH.

John McCain gives off a gay vibe. He prefers the company of men and clearly during the presidential debates preferred talking with men than women, especially military men. While all Republican straight men were swooning over Sarah Palin, he seemed to find her almost repulsive. Maybe he's just old school, or maybe he has a strong emotional connection to men.

Maybe this guy's just a conservative douche. He's out and he's still working there, so "self-hating" probably doesn't apply. There are plenty of gay men who'd put their rights on hold if they thought it meant Mexicans would get them too.

Money before community, what a concept. That's all I see in DC, on both sides of the aisle.

Has anyone asked him what his reasons are for working for McCain? There's always the off chance that McCain saved his father's life or something like that.

Or it could boil down to the fact that some gays who are white, upper-class males think they can buy their own personal equality with their money and privilege.

I think your 2nd paragraph is the more likely scenario, rhapsody.
