Oh, I have a more clever excuse. It was a radical gay "spy" who either hacked into office computers, or may be posing as dedicated staff in order to discredit the great senator. Hmmmmm, what will they decide?

Even if it wasn't Chambliss who made the comment, isn't he responible for tghe actions his staff? As a senior citizen, I lived through the white night riots of 1979 and today the GLBT community is far more organized. Words like that can and will cause us to stand up against Saxby Chambliss and other dishonorable republicans like him!

Hey, LEH, what part of Palm Springs are you in? I'm off El Cielo, behind the City Hall!

Anyway, I read a name like "Saxby" and think GUILTY, well, guilty of something.
He may hem and haw, but can you IMAGINE the banter that goes on in that office when the mics are not on, and staffers are not stupid enough to log on like that? Someone is going to lose his job over this, but it is not done willingly by Chambliss. His "apologies"? Too little, too late.

The comment may have come from a staffer, but it just goes to show you the character of people the Senator surrounds himself with. The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. The sentiments of Senator's staffer are most likely the same as the Senator himself.

It's easy to say this considering the Senator's voting record and his anti-gay stance on most issues.

As a Georgian, I'm completely embarrassed and ashamed. Both the staffer and the Senator should be booted from serving the public in any form.

This is a ***REPUBLICAN*** Senator,**NOT** Democrat.

OPEN YOUR EYES. REPUBLICANS AND LIBERTARIANS ARE NOT FRIENDS OF AMERICAN GLBT CITIZENS.

I do believe this post, whether from a staffer or not, sums up the GOP position on GLBT people.

Regardless of what party I am affiliated with, come November I am voting a straight Democratic ticket and I have NEVER voted a party ticket in my entire life.

Unfortunately in the US political climate a vote for other than Rep or Dem is a wasted vote and can hand an election to the wrong party.

I had forgotten that Saxby Chambliss was the monster who beat out Senator Cleland, who had lost his legs and arm in Vietnam, by calling him soft on national security and not a patriot. Meanwhile, Saxby sat his fat ass at home during any combat times and did NOT serve, despite calling a true hero "not" a patriot. What a pig. I hope this ruins his career.

My thought is what of the electorate of Georgia that listened to this asshat and voted for him?

That being said, though I agree with hoping his career is ruined, more than likely the same idiots that elected him will reelect him when his term is up.
