to people who care only about political ideology this is the sensible conclusion. To people who would rather have someone who knows what their job is, does it well, and would rather not see incompetent political hacks running Wall street, National Security, or any other important government position, this is a good choice.

One thing I noticed about this story, the "religious right wing nut" keeps referring to Amanda Simpson as "he".

I guess being a man of the cloth imparts more medical knowledge of this case than the transgender's experience or a surgeon's education.

The blurb above refers to "prominent figures on the religious right..." Let's remember, there are no "prominent" figures on the religious right, unless one is referring to girth.

Let them go nuts. History will see them for the bigots they are, just as they did for every other bigoted ideology.

Isn't it ironic that these nuts object to her being hired because they don't believe transsexuals have earned affirmative action? I guess in their book we'll have to build up a nice long track record of denying them jobs so that they can get affirmative action.

But wait! Didn't we inherit that track record from the previous administration?

Besides, let them show that this was some sort of affirmative action. If they can't, then they are guilty of breaking two of the Big Ten: Mistreating our neighbors, and bearing false witness against them.

Nice people these self-declared leaders of the Christian community!

No Republican can imagination that the best qualified is Transgendered, Gay or Lesbian. but they think Log Cabin Repubs are kids playing with toy houses called Lincoln Logs.

they think that saying I am not gay is a campaign slogan, Ask Craig.

And Lincoln only slept with men to avoid the sex nagging of his wife. Just like they do. So why do they carry K-Y lub everywhere.

Matt Barber is trying to get the blacks all riled up against gays and Obama (since he Obama is half-black). I see right through Barber's AGENDA and activism.

Basically these Christian groups are trying to make others think it's morally okay to discriminate against people who are different, misunderstood, and unpopular.

It's really a shame we can't do something more about US Evangelicals besides just bitching about them.

Yes what a shame that you can't just send us all to concentration camps.
