Tim Eyman: Scumbag

Good news. Tim Eyman crawled out from under his rock again yesterday. Apparently he needs some cash for an asshole transplant, so he's going to start collecting signatures for an initiative to overturn our new Gay Rights Legislation. Good plan, since you can never go poor by appealing to the interests of bigots and morons, and there are still plenty of them around, even in a State as "liberal" as ours.

Let's just hope that the transplanted asshole doesn't reject him...

The money quote:

Rep. Hunt expressed outrage over the proposal.“Tim Eyman, have you no shame?” Hunt said. “Eyman is stooping to a new low just to line his pockets and get a mailing list of bigots.”

Hunt described himself as “pissed but sober,” then added, referring to Eyman having dressed up as a prisoner during a legislative hearing last week: “If Tim Eyman is fond of wearing costumes, I suggest his next one be a white sheet and a pointy white hat. I just think it is a sad day for Washington what he is doing.”

While you're busy mulling that over in your own "pissed and sober" way, let us wash out the unpleasant aftertaste of "The I-man" by remembering the words of the late, great Coretta Scott King on this very issue:

"I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people and I should stick to the issue of racial justice," she said. "But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.'" "I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream to make room at the table of brother- and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people,".

Right on brother LGG!

MLK Jr. also said that "no one is free while others were oppressed."
