No More Mister Nice Guy: Pat Boone’s homophobic political calls

Just because recent political scandals haven't brought quite enough crazy, particularly when it comes to gays and Republicans, the flailing recumbent incumbent candidate for Kentucky governor (Ernest Fletcher) enlisted leather-vest-happy, otherwise rather irrelevant crooner Pat Boone to record some homophobic telemarketing messages for the GOP.

You can listen to the calls in all their unhinged glory over here, but here are a few samples of what they got into (transcription courtesy of PageOneQ):

"… Now he faces a man who wants his job who has consistently supported every homosexual cause: same sex marriage, gay adoption, special rights, to gay, lesbian, bisexual, even transgender individuals."

"The problem (inaudible) gay advocacy groups (inaudible) enthusiastically endorse Bashear, knowing he's their guy. Kentuckians have already voted to amend the state constitution to prohibit same sex marriage. Now, do you want governor who'd like Kentucky to be like another San Francisco? Please reelect Ernie Fletcher."

This coming from the man who notably lived next to the Osbornes, and appeared on their reality show. And heck, he's dressed for the Folsom Street Fair already! (And yes, that album cover at the top is real. We don't joke about that kind of thing here.)

While it's not likely that these phonecalls will get Fletcher the votes he needs to get re-elected, they will provide us with literally hours of YouTube mashup enjoyment.

Writer-filmmaker Brian Juergens launched CampBlood.org, the world's first website devoted to horror films from a gay perspective, in 2003.
