Maddow Slams Log Cabin Republicans


Rachel Maddow took aim at the Log Cabin Republicans for endorsing the opponent of Congressman Patrick Murphy, the champion of "don't ask, don't tell" repeal who was defeated in the November election.

Joe.My.God reports that Maddow marveled at how Log Cabin rewarded Murphy of Pennsylvania for his "indefatigable leadership" by supporting Mike Fitzgerald, who will take his seat in the new Congress. The push from Murphy contributed to the two House votes in support of "don't ask, don't tell" repeal this year.

"If you have ever wondered how it is that the American public keeps getting more and more positive about gay rights, but gay actual rights, policy that affects gay people, lags decades behind that public acceptance, this is why," said Maddow. "Behold what is supposed to be a gay rights movement siding against Congressman Patrick Murphy. It's astonishing."
