PA Governor on Same Sex Marriage

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...cal&id=9273985

Just stumbled upon this news story while reading up on Philly news. Gov. Corbett went on a local (Harrisburg) morning talk show this morning. When asked to comment on recent comments made by his attorney that compared gay marriage to marriage between children the Gov. responded by saying that "It was an inappropriate analogy, you know. I think a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don't you?"

There is a video of the comment in the link I provided. The reaction of the reporter is priceless.

I obviously know that gaffs like this are not solely committed by members of the GOP, but after all the ridiculous comments made about abortion in the last election by politicians in MO and IN (woohoo Hoosiers ) don't you think politicians would learn that smarmy, off-the-cuff comments are not always conducive to their political careers?

Any additional examples I may have missed would be appreciated.

Wonderful insight...really and truly. Not that I'd expect anything less.

An interesting news story would be a politician who preaches against gay marriage but yet ends up getting married to someone of the same sex.

Ask and ye shall receive.

Still doesn't negate the fact that this guy was given a chance to smooth over and defuse comments made by an associate of his, and only ended up making himself look like an ignorant ass in the process.

Sounds like something even celebrities are known to do. Big ****ing deal!

The frustrating part of it isn't his stance (because it's just ridiculous...) It's that he thinks it's funny.

My fellow posters, save this quote for AP's next outraged thread based on what a politician says.

Brother and sister? What a ***ing idiot.

It really would behoove the GOP to distance themselves backwards turds like this. How hard is it to not say completely dumb **** like this?

I never claimed that they didn't, now did I? Unfortunately the story was about a politician (I don't care what their political persuasion is), hence why I geared the thread towards politics, and not celebrities. Feel free to start a thread about that if you really want to. We have all seen you make butt hurt threads before (e.g., WTF California).

Terrorism is a much bigger issue than stuff like this.

I never said it wasn't. But the thread isn't about terrorism, just like it's not about celebrities. Keep on trying though.

It is unfortunate, however, that there are complete dullards like this in politics.

I hate to say it, but he strikes me as fairly representative of Pennsylvania. Politicians are dull because people are.

I can't disagree with you there, I grew up in PA. The space between Pittsburgh and Philly is extremely red, and filled with views like this example.

Yup, and judging by your location you're right in the thick of it.

Edit: Nevermind...Collegeville isn't too far removed from the Philly area. I was thinking more central PA...State College etc.

Corbett is an ass hole and has become really unpopular. If he runs again in 2016, I look forward to voting him out of office.

What a d-bag. Here is his "apology" - which of course is not a real apology, but rather an "I'm sorry if people felt offended by my remarks" apology:

I'm proud to have not voted for Tom Corbett, and I will be even more proud to vote him out next year.

Moderate GOP'ers must go nuts when idiots spew this crap. How are people supposed to take the GOP seriously on domestics and political issues, when they're so far out in space when it comes to social issues?

Oh duh, he's up in 2014. Brain fart from me. Well this is great news; I'll almost definitely be living in Australia at election time next year, and registered to vote in PA since that was my most recent state of US residence. Corbett's polls are looking so bad that he might be better served to not stand for re-election.

Good lord.
