Unqualified to be a judge (guess why - no seriously... guess)

Mr. Thorne-Begland during some of his 20 years
as a Jet fighter pilot
In a surprise to absolutely no one, Tracy Thorne-Begland was rejected as a Judge in Virginia, despite being supported by both the Republican and Democratic legal Boards in the state.  He isn't liberal - he is a top rated Prosecutor in the state.
.
He isn't a pansy - he spent 20 years as a Navy Jet Fighter Pilot (serving in the Middle East).
.
So what's wrong with him.  When asked, he admitted he was gay, which was enough to convince over 1/2 of the House of Representatives in Virginia to not support him.
.
Seriously, the Confederacy should just put up a big FAGS GET OUT sign at the Mason Dixon line.  Apparently no amount of public service, national military service or upstanding private life makes up for the fact that he shhh likes boys.  Apparently his biggest sin was that he got married in a state where it is legal.  Now he and his husband are raising twins.  Which is, you know, icky.
.
I also LOVED that some Republican douche bag said that it wasn't fair that he received flight training - and they protested Don't Ask Don't Tell.  Wasting 1 million dollars of US training.  You know, after only quietly serving in the Navy fighter force for 20 years.
.
PS - One of the two judges that was approved spent his last years in the legislature working to pass a law that would allow concealed weapons into public buildings - you know, like schools and churches (but not courts).
.
Asswipes.
