Happy Hour News

The hypocrisy and cynicism here is stunning:

GOP lawmaker attended gay son’s wedding 3 days after voting against same-sex marriage

A Republican lawmaker attended his gay son’s wedding just three days after joining the majority of his GOP colleagues in voting against a House bill that would codify federal protections for same-sex marriage.

The gay son of Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., confirmed to NBC News on Monday that he “married the love of [his] life” on Friday and that his “father was there.” NBC News is not publishing the names of the grooms, neither of whom is a public figure.

Thompson’s press secretary, Maddison Stone, also confirmed the congressman was in attendance.

“Congressman and Mrs. Thompson were thrilled to attend and celebrate their son’s marriage on Friday night as he began this new chapter in his life,” Stone said in an email, adding that the Thompsons are “very happy” to welcome their new son-in-law “into their family.”

That takes some stones. I’m amazed the grooms allowed him to attend.

    Teh republican party is the aristocracy risen again and hypocrisy is a big tool in their apparent hold on a certain portion of the regular folks. Other wise they wouldn’t have enough votes to get close enough to cheat to win.

    I think of it like this: republicans = the merchant class = aristocracy = multi-millionaires, billionaires = our current and future autocrats, fascists…
