Infamous homophobe Bryan Fischer, who serves as the antigay American Family Association's director of issues analysis, doesn't believe that the electoral thumping conservatives took in last November's election is a reflection of their declining popularity. Instead, Fischer just thinks conservatives need to find a better "salesman" to peddle their ideology.
On Wednesday's episode of The David Pakman Show, the progressive host tried in vain to get the right-winger to admit that socially conservative ideals no longer have the support of the American people.
"If we look at demographic shifts that are taking place, combined with the direction of this polling, either way it's not going to bode well [for hard-line conservative values]," says Pakman.
Fischer baldly denies Pakman's numerical assessment, claiming that "The problem with the election in 2012, is that the Republicans ran a moderate on many of these issues."
Fischer claims that four million conservative voters stayed home during last year's election because they thought Mitt Romney was too liberal, calling the failed presidential candidate "the godfather of gay marriage in the United States."
Fischer also reveals that he enjoys watching Mad Men, though he says the values on the show "suck."
