I was perusing some CA political blogs and ran across this little bit of something at D-Day.

Meanwhile, to drum up support for Schwarzenegger among evangelicals, the state party has hired Ben Lopez, a lobbyist for the Rev. Lou Sheldon's Traditional Values Coalition, a group that seeks to outlaw abortion and roll back gay rights.

Good grief, Arnold.

The Traditional Values Coalition. Hoo boy. Google them and read their site for five minutes, and let me know how you're feeling about Arnold's campaign after that.

Frankly, I think Arnold is full of hockey pucks. He says:
"I am proud California is a leader in recognizing and respecting domestic partnerships and the equal rights of domestic partners," .... "I support current domestic partnership rights and will continue to vigorously defend and enforce these rights and as such will not support any rollback."

(as he's vetoing the same sex marriage legislation.)

And now they hire someone who's job is to keep gays from having equal rights. This organization calls homosexuality "deviant behavior". They opposed benefits for the partners of 9/11 victims. They blather about the "homosexual agenda". They oppose women's right to privacy w/r/t reproductive rights, and call global warming a hoax The whole right wing theocratic agenda.


You get the picture.

In summary: Don't buy that line about him being a moderate. He just plays one on tv.
