Gay hater opts out of presidential nomination

Update on the Bob Jones University alum nominated by our president to the AIDS commisson. Andrew Sullivan reports that the gay hater has resigned from the nomination process, and Ari Never-tell-a-lie Fleischer castigated him for referring to AIDS as a “gay plague.”

“The views that he holds are far, far removed from what the president believes,” Fleischer said. “The president has a total opposite view … The president’s view is that people with AIDS need to be treated with care, compassion.”

That may well be, but it has not been reflected by the company Bush has kept, right from the start of the 2000 campaign and the infamous courting of Bob Jones University. Notice that Ari, ever careful with every syllable, says that Bush advocates compassion for “people with AIDS,” not tolerance for gays.
