I used it that way when I was a kid, but then I realized what it was really saying and stopped using it.

I hate when gay is used that way. It is insulting, insensitive, and ignorant. I am a Democrat and would never vote for McCain anyway!

Perhaps the sweater didn't portray the somber GOPtude he felt important to get across to the voting public? Perhaps he was using "gay" as in happy?

Hmmm, maybe we at KH could get together a knit a long and knit an Oddball Rainbow type sweater for him....instead of the "boyfriend" sweater it could be the "presidential trail" sweater.

Just a few ideas:

I wonder how many rainbow-colored knit goods he's already received in response to his outburst... :thinking:

I LOVE that idea.... SHOWER him with "gay" sweaters!

just makes me want to sing - "Don me now this gay apparal"

And how did McCain determine that his sweater was gay?

Whatever his reasoning, McCain = Barf

Why, oh why do you do that to me? It's a slow day at work, so I have spent the morning thinking about knitting and checking out the forums here at my desk.

Which is fine, as long as I am here to handle any last minute emergencies.

What is not fine is me laughing out loud, and then promptly falling out of my chair!

As for a republican, I can honestly say that the man is challenged when it comes to sensitivity and intelligence.

A gay sweater is a sweater that is attracted to other sweaters. If the sweater is attracted to camisoles, then the sweater is also a pedophile.

Hetero sweaters are attracted to pants and skirts.


Am famoos!
