Steele just said in an interview with GQ that he believes that abortion is an individual choice and that he believes being gay is not a choice.
Are you saying you think women have the right to choose abortion?
Yeah. I mean, again, I think that’s an individual choice.
Do you think homosexuality is a choice?
Oh, no. I don’t think I’ve ever really subscribed to that view, that you can turn it on and off like a water tap. Um, you know, I think that there’s a whole lot that goes into the makeup of an individual that, uh, you just can’t simply say, oh, like, “Tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being gay.” It’s like saying, “Tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being black.”
I may want to rethink when the GOP is going to pull the plug on this man. One thing I do know: it will happen between news cycles. Oh, and Rush will be the one to insert the long knives.
UPDATE: Even the nominally squishy GOPer K-Lo is sharpening the knives. She thinks Steele may have (gasp!) voted for Jimmy Carter.
