I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.

Between him and Carrie Prejean, our opposition should really start looking for better spokepeople. Or people that, at least, make sense when they talk.
