Fred Karger, that unicorn of an openly gay Republican presidential candidate, was in St. George this week campaigning and meeting with LDS Church leaders to discuss their support and fundraising of anti-gay laws around the nation. While he was there, he took the opportunity to meet with Washington County Republican Party Chairman Willie Billings. Per Karger, their meeting was friendly and productive, and resulted in Karger passing along some campagin schwag to Billings.
Where this story gets fun is that, when Willie took his Karger Kitsch home to his wife, she blew a gasket, threw his campaign material in the trash, and took it upon herself to send Karger an exceptionally rude email.
My feeling is the only reason he’s running for president is to find more [sexual] partners. I would never support him, nor, for that matter, any openly gay or lesbian candidate. The biggest issue is they can’t procreate. So I think it’s totally wicked. We’re a very conservative state in Utah, very family-oriented. So he’s picked a state just to cause ruckus. He’s not thinking of family, he’s thinking of himself. He’s not running for president to fix something in the country—he’s thinking of his own personal agenda, period. And I was just letting him know that I think he’s an idiot to think of running.
You heard it here first folks – the best route to tapping some top quality ass is to run for president as a Republican. Delete Grindr, start a SuperPAC, and go at it boys!
But seriously, who the hell does this woman think she is? Certainly she needs to learn a thing or two from her church lessons. Where in the bible does it say “be an absolute bitch to someone who was just trying to be nice”? At the very minimum she could have thrown away Karger’s shit and moved on like the rest of us do when we get an Orrin Hatch flyer in the mail. Or she could have been a real adult and listened to Karger’s point of view and either considered it or not, and kindly moved on with her life. Instead, she acted like a petulant teenage girl who just got her iPhone taken away. Nanette Billings, you’re a terrible representative of the people around you and you’ve turned Karger’s pointless trip to Utah into something that has been picked up by the national news to further bring scrutiny upon your bigoted thoughts and ideals.
