How shocking! How can it possibly be that a person can permit values and thought to override a perfectly good political classification? I mean, it is common knowledge that anyone with a non-mainstream sexual history can only be liberal and that anyone with a Republican leaning must only believe in a published party line with no deviation (no pun intended or implied).

Oh, snap! Could this mean that all persons who have opted for a sex change did so because they secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) are homophobic and could not stand the idea that they might be homosexual, or because they could not stand to be liberal? Hmmmm, dang it! Now I gotta sit down and think about it. making me po haid hurt!

Transgender and Republican - this individual seems to be confused in more way than one...

Her/his quote; "what I'm all about is the conservative values that made this country a great country that made this country a beacon of hope for many people, including my family," Just another example of the Republican big tent!

I don't think that being transgender disqualifies someone from political office. If I agreed with her politics, I wouldn't have a problem voting for her.

I honestly don't expect her to get much support from other Republicans though...

He/she/it needs to work on their own mental confusion before he/she/it works on the political problems. We need representitives of SOUND mind and body.

With arguments like these, it's no wonder this forum is a magnet for intellectuals like me.

I question the intellectual power of people who cannot figure out the normal use of their body parts.
