Yes, That Is Right, Republican Gubernatorial Runner Christy Mihos Would Support Voting on the Rights of Massachusetts Greek Citizens To Justify His Pandering to Pro-Family Anti-Gay Activists for Votes in the 2010 Republican State Convention
A few months ago, KnowThyNeighbor.org made a personal phone call to Republican Christy Mihos and interviewed him on LGBT issues. My sudden interest in Christy came from my observation that many of Massachusettts Anti-Gay Republican Activists seemed to be "friends" of his on Facebook or in the GOP rumormill now declaring support. These include Sandi Martinez, Peter Porcupine (GOP Sock Puppet Blogger/State Committee Woman), Aaron Margolis, Bob Hargraves, etc.
When I pointed this out to Christy Mihos and asked him if he supports "Gay Marriage" his answer to me was, "Let me say first off, the 'Courts Got It Right!" Taken a bit aback I went silent in the interview, to which Mihos returned the question, "Don't you think the courst got it right?" My answer was "of course, but I am concerned why all these anti-gay people seem to be rooting for you and not Baker/Tisei?" His answer, "Because I feel that this should be voted on (meaning same-sex marriage)." "Everything should be allowed to be voted on."
Mihos, then went on to say, "I would even support a measure that would allow the people of Massachusetts to vote of the rights of ' Five Foot Eight Greek Guys..." One thing about Christy, he is one of the few people that can make me speechless. I paused and said, "Well Christy, I for one would be one of those standing up and yelling from the top of my lungs that we should not vote on the rights of 'Five Foot Eight Greek Guys' -- just as we should not vote on anyone's rights." To which Mihos responded, "yeah I (meaning Mihos and his Greek reference) am probably protected in the Constitution..."
"Yes, Christy, the conversation by those already inside Equality is different than those who are outside of it," I said, and my interview with Christy Mihos ended.
Conclusion, during the 2006 Gubernatorial Race Christy Mihos produced a funny commercial showing charactures of Kerry Healey and Mitt Romney sticking their heads up their asses. I suggest that on the subject of Equality, Mr. Mihos portray himself as a "man speaking out both sides of his own ass."
