Quote of the Day: Former Sen. Alan Simpson (R)

The video has been getting around but the transcript is pretty powerful too.

Former Sen Simpson has no patience with today's Republicans. REmember, this used to be the party that opposed intrusion into the private business of the people.
We have homophobes on our party. That’s disgusting to me. We’re all human beings. We’re all God’s children. Now if they’re going to get off on that stuff—Santorum has said some cruel things—cruel, cruel things—about homosexuals. Ask him about it; see if he attributes the cruelness of his remarks years ago. Foul. Now if that’s the kind of guys that are going to be on my ticket, you know, it makes you sort out hard what Reagan said, you know, 'Stick with your folks.' But I’m not sticking with people who are homophobic, anti-women, moral values—while you’re diddling your secretary while you’re giving a speech on moral values? Come on, get off of it." .
