Pretzel Romney

The Romney candidacy is staggering under the weight of its own contradictions. Ryan Lizza explores Romney's past and one activist's attempt to broadcast it to the world. Money quote:

Camenker reminds his fellow conservatives that Romney appointed numerous openly gay men and women, including the state employee responsible for adding a box to driver's license renewal forms to indicate whether the applicant's sex has changed. He points out, with links to many interesting pictures, that the governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth--the same government body whose fisting seminars so rankled Camenker back in 2000--organized a "Youth Pride Day" and "Transgender Proms." No detail escapes Camenker's attention. He notes that Romney's Department of Education distributed a publication, The Little Black Book: Queer in the 21st Century, that includes the following practical information: "There is little risk of STD infection and no risk of HIV infection from playing with pee."

Spin that, K-Lo.
