My Opponent Has Scandalously Understated My Dislike for the Gays

|

In the close Mississippi race for Trent Lott's Senate seat, Republican Roger Wicker put out the following ad:

Democrat Ronnie Musgrove promptly denounced the ad, though not because of the ridiculous gay stereotypes.  Rather, he wants to assure the voters of Mississippi that he dislikes those gays as much as anyone.  From his campaign's press release:

In March 2000, Musgrove supported a ban on adoption by homosexuals or same-sex couples. The ban not only pertained to adoptions in Mississippi, but also ensured that Mississippi would not recognize adoptions by gay individuals or couples from other states if the parents moved to Mississippi.

Glad that's all cleared up.
