& Another Example of Fine Behavior

from a ReThug via Roger Ailes, no not that Roger Ailes.

Roger Ailes: "Another Victim of Gay Marriage
A Republican family man just wants to get back his job: legislating morality and codifying discrimination:

WASHINGTON -- Three days after it was reported he was involved in a domestic dispute that triggered a 911 call from a 29-year-old woman in his Washington apartment, U.S. Rep. Don Sherwood apologized for causing his family and supporters 'pain and embarrassment.'

'I'm truly sorry. Now, I have work to do. I'm going to continue to work hard for the people of the 10th Congressional District, and to begin the healing process with my family.'

That's beautiful. I'm all choked up.

The woman, Cynthia Ore of Rockville, Md., says Sherwood has been her lover since 1999.

'When I met him he told me he was getting a divorce,' Ore has said.

So that's why Republicans oppose quick divorces -- they inhibit their ability to get laid. This also explains their love of the Young Republicans -- it's the perfect source for fresh meat.

While the Tunkhannock Republican has hardly led the conservative charge on social issues, GOP leaders in the House have come to rely upon his vote when bills pertaining to 'traditional family values' come to the floor.

The Christian Coalition of America, which touts itself as 'the largest and most active conservative grassroots political organization in America,' gives Sherwood an 84 percent rating for voting with the coalition's positions on legislative issues. The American Conservative Union rates him at 88 percent.

The American Family Association gives Sherwood a perfect 100-percent rating.

Ms. Ore gave him a O percent rating for honesty, and 5 percent for technique.

Among the votes that helped earn Sherwood his 100 percent rating with the family association was his support of the Marriage Protection Act of 2004, which would limit the federal courts' jurisdiction over the issue of whether a ban on same-sex marriage is constitutional. Sherwood also voted in favor of a failed proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to define marriage as an institution between a man and a woman.

....and another, much younger woman who really understands me.
