The Real Scott Walker

Now he's refusing to defend the domestic partner registry.  Because he thinks it runs afoul of the state's ban on gay marriage.

How dare gay people be happy together while Scott Walker is in charge.  Personal freedom is great in his book, unless you're gay.  Suddenly the state then has a compelling interest in making sure that you are unfree.

Matt Yglesias deadpans, "No doubt anti-gay discrimination is just a pragmatic response to state-level budget cuts and not at all part of an ideological agenda."

As long as Republicans continue to crusade against equality for homosexuals in every sphere of life, their talk about smaller government and personal liberty is meaningless.
