Quote of the Week: Republican State Senator Roy McDonald on Voting for Gay Marriage

Posted by Paul Constant on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 2:27 PM

Here's Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald:

"You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

Holy shit. This is the best thing a politician has said in ages. And be sure to vote in the TMZ poll, which right now says 85% of respondents believe McDonald did the right thing.
