If it's all about useless lint-picking -- or grandstanding for the bigots -- you can expect Congresswoman Virginia Foxx to be at the head of the buffet line.
There was some puzzlement at the Republican County Convention last Saturday when Foxx told the GOP faithful that she had signed on with 81 other House Republicans to force President Obama to uphold the no-gay-marriage ban represented by the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Like they could hire a lawyer and do that!
'Course, the faithful at the Republican Convention all nodded their heads vigorously at the thought that more pesticide might be dumped on The Gay.
Meanwhile, this issue is not playing well for the national GOP. And perhaps even the fearful Foxx-fanns in the 5th District of N.C. might eventually discover that bashing gay people really has absolutely nothing to do with creating jobs or improving the economy.
