Outpouring of love

September 21, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see all the love local rep John Sinrud is getting from the blogs lately.

Sadly, I have no anti-Sinrud experience to share with you, other than the one going on in Touchstone’s comments, where Sinrud is dodging questions, demanding my last name, and attacking Tester (and addressing that attack to me, for some reason) for raising taxes (when he actually didn’t).

I really do like his justification for voting against hate crimes protection for sexual orientation:

“What we’re doing is, people who may disagree with people could have penalty enhancement,” said Rep. John Sinrud, R-Bozeman. “I don’t think you want to squelch free speech. This is America. We have a right to disagree and we have a right to free speech.”

I like to think I’m something of a First Amendment zealot, but I’m just not sure curb stomping someone because he or she is gay is free speech. John thinks it is, apparently. He also seems to think this is Europe, where they do actually pass hate speech laws.

All in all, he and his wife make quite a pair.
