HomoQuotable - Chris Barron

"I understand that Pawlenty is trying hard to get people to pay attention to his campaign. Its certainly a challenge for someone with such little stature in the conservative movement to compete with high profile conservative leaders like Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, etc. Unfortunately for Pawlenty, comments like this simply show how totally out-of-touch he is with the issues that rank and file conservatives care about. If he wants to show he is a committed social conservative he would be much better served talking about the need to defund Planned Parenthood, end federal funding for abortion, reign in an out of control judiciary and support for a parents rights amendment to protect home-schoolers." - GOProud head Chris Barron, seizing upon Pawlenty's anti-DADT repeal statements to get out his own group's social agenda.

You may recall Barron famously saying last August: "We are a gay organization, we only work on gay issues, we have never claimed otherwise. My God, people."

Apparently he was referring to gay issues like defunding Planned Parenthood, repealing health care reform, blocking gun control, and abolishing the Department of Education.
