Reaganfest 2007 continued

Tommy Thompson, the former Wisconsin governor who is running for president says he "misinterpreted the question" when he said an employer should be able to fire an employee if they learn he or she is gay. His spokeperson says Thompon does not believe any kind of discrimination in the workplace is justified, and that his record (I guess as governor) reflects that belief.

I wonder how Bush is going to respond when the Employment Non Discrimination Act is presented to him, hopefully in the not too distant future. The administration has already indicated that Bush will veto the Hate Crimes bill passed by the house last week. That's interesting, and I will bring this up again if he vetos the bill, but I see where Bush has signed the Dog and Chicken Hate crimes act (actually a worthy piece of legislation, the Animal fighting Prohibition Act that makes dog fighting and cock fighting a federal crime and strengthens law enforcement's ability to put a stop to this form of animal abuse....

So in his mind (and the minds of legislators who voted for this bill and against the Hate Crime Bill) the chickens and dogs are more worthy than the homosexuals.

That's Bush for ya.
