Patrick Sammon Defends McCain On CNN

Log Cabin Republicans head Patrick Sammon was just on CNN defending John McCain. Sammon says that while he disagrees with the anti-gay planks in the Republican platform, "The platform is largely symbolic and is forgotten the day after the convention." Sammon added, "I'd rather have a candidate that agrees with me than a platform."

Again Sammon stressed that McCain opposes a federal ban on gay marriage, but conveniently forgot to mention that McCain wants gay marriage overturned in California and supported a ban in his home state of Arizona. According to Sammon, the "rank and file of the Republican party is much more supportive of gay rights that one might suspect." Oh, Patrick.

UPDATE: Here's the clip.
