Rep. Sam Graves: Bringing San Francisco Chic To Missouri?

Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) seems to think his Democratic opponent wants to import San Francisco values into the ‘œShow-Me’ state. Unfortunately, the images Graves uses to make his point suggest he may be living in ‘œla la land’’¦and I’™m not talking about Los Angeles.

It looks like San Francisco has become the new France (freedom fries anyone?)’¦at least for some members of the GOP. Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) has taken to featuring those awful ‘œSan Francisco values’ to attack his Democratic opponent, Kay Barnes.

He’™s apparently doing this because he wants Missourians to believe that Barnes’™ singular goal is to take solid midwestern values and transform them into a San Francisco style Sodom & Gomorrah. Unfortunately, the music and images are a miserable melange comparable to what one might expect to find on a late night TV commercial promoting a singles hook-up phone line.

I could be wrong, but it looks to me like Rep. Graves has spent too many restless nights on the couch in front of his television. A more sinister interpretation of the image might suggest that Graves wants his constituents to ponder the slippery slope mentality one would expect to hear from Rick Santorum’¦you know, the one that thinks gay marriage is just the tip of the iceberg in the progression towards allowing ‘œman with his favorite pet marriages’.

All that’™s missing from this multi-racial, pansexual, menage a trois Solid Gold meets Queer as Folk dance club image to complete this ludicrous mindset is a dirty dancing German Shepherd and a pair of ‘œin sync’ silver-haired sister spinsters.
