Arlington Sun Gazette Stoops to Homophobic Joke (?)


Over at the right-wing real estate rag known as the Arlington Sun Gazette, editor Scott McCaffrey has added a bit of variety to his usual assaults on liberals, the “loopy left” the “environmentalist left,” the “blogging crowd,” Democrats, anyone who criticizes him, real newspapers (e.g., the Falls Church News-Press), etc. Now, he’s stooped to a homophobic joke – presuming this is a joke – and an extremely juvenile one at that (think 7th grade)!

Well, ha ha ha and hardy har har, the thought of Gerry Connolly and Jim Moran sleeping together, isn’t that funny? Wait, you didn’t think this was funny? Maybe that’s because this wasn’t really meant as a joke, that perhaps Arlington Sun Gazette editor Scott McCaffrey really fears that Gerry Connolly and Jim Moran might become homosexual lovers, and is horrified at the prospect? Yeah, it’s completely nuts, but sadly, it’s also just another day in Sun Gazette la-la land.

P.S. This is the same right wingnut who denies global warming, who endorsed Felix Macacawitz over Jim Webb for Senate in 2006, who also endorsed Bob McDonnell over Creigh Deeds in 2009, who also endorsed Bill Bolling over Jody Wagner in 2009, etc., etc.

But at least he seems to love Ward Armstrong (for his “moderate positions and leadership [that] makes the left-wing blogosphere types crazy”, and also because his “politics are in the Creigh Deeds mode, a style that didn’t help Democrats in 2009, but may be more effective come the next statewide race.”). My god. {UPDATE: Actually, Creigh Deeds is a flaming liberal compared to Ward Armstrong, who is truly a “DINO”}
