Well, so much for dialing down the heated political rhetoric.
A podcast called “Doc Holliday’s Tea Party” and hosted by the Tea Party Review–a glossy new monthly dedicated to covering the movement–has awarded the four Republican New York State Senators who voted in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage with its weekly “Tombstone Award.”
The award ominously “goes to an action, deed or words that deserve to be placed six-feet under the ground” and is presented to Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Steve Saland, and Mark Grisanti.
The quartet, Holliday writes:
“[P]rovided the margin of passage for the new same-sex marriage law in the state of New York. These modern day Benedict Arnold’s were the four Republican votes needed to make this law pass.
Their votes in Albany were completely different from the way they campaigned during their election posturing.
Tea Party patriots around the country, beware of RINO Republicans who campaign one way and once they get elected vote the opposite way. It doesn’t matter what you think of the subject of same-sex marriage, the fact is these Republicans campaigned one way and voted another. They betrayed their constituents.
These modern day Benedict Arnold’s should get primary opponents and be kicked out of office the next election, and their votes in the state senate should be buried six-feet beneath a tombstone.
