Over at HuffPo there’s the story of Amanda Simpson, who has been named by President Obama as senior technical adviser for the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security.
Why are the Religious wingnut Right so afraid? Because she’s actually Transgender! What do you expect though from the religious Taliban who want people to get roles not because they’re the best person for the job but because they see themselves reflected in them?
The fact that she has 30 years experience cuts no ice with them – oh no! They see Government not as a basis of getting things done with the best people creating solutions – they see it as being done by people THEY approve of ie George W Bush!
Thus one paid up member of the Christian fraternity said `The transgender thing doesn’t play well with millions of conservative Evangelicals. … I understand President Obama won’t be after die hard conservative Evangelicals in 2012 but let’s remember that moves like this don’t play well with the million of conservative Independent voters and Catholics who will be up for grabs again in 2012 as well.”
In YOUR world sonny appointments might well be JUST to do with political calculations. In a Liberal world it’s about getting the right people for the job!
