Rhode Island Republican Rep. Robert Watson said in February that his primarily liberal state had its priorities right "if you are a Guatemalan gay man who likes to gamble and smokes marijuana." Very professional.
It turns out the racist homophobic House minority leader's self-righteous attitude has gone up in smoke. Connecticut cops stopped Watson at an East Haven sobriety checkpoint and sniffed pot and booze. He was found with a bag of marijuana and a wooden pipe in his pocket, while his BAC was 0.05, adding Driving Under the Influence to a drug possession charge.
The jackass responded to the charges by saying they just didn't happen: "While confident I was a safe and sober operator, trace evidence of marijuana was discovered and I was charged with operating under the influence, a charge I vehemently deny." You betcha, buddy! I sure hope his cellmates don't happen to be foreign, gay or blackjack dealers... although if he runs into a drug dealer, I'm sure they'll be fast friends.
When will these "conservatives" ever learn that time will reveal their never-failing hypocrisy?
