Leave it to our House Rep, Steve Cohen, to turn everything into a mean spirited political game.
After Bruce became Caitlyn Jenner, Cohen tweeted: “Bruce Jenner came out as a Republican. Well is Caitlyn a Republican too?”
He was referring to the Jenner interview with Diane Sawyer that went like this:
“Are you Republican?” Sawyer asked.
“Yeah,” he said with a smile. “Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.”
He added that he’s thought about whether becoming a woman would be unsettling for the conservative wing of the Republican party, but told Sawyer that neither political party has a monopoly on “understanding.”
Jenner also said he would go to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to help promote the LGBT cause.
“In a heartbeat, why not?” He told Sawyer. “And I think they’d be very receptive to it.”
That must have shocked Cohen. How could a minority not espouse the beloved party of victimhood?
Hence the tweet.
Cohen couldn’t stop himself with just one smarmy tweet. He then followed with this: “The help Jenner expects may b (sic) forthcoming, but if it isn’t (no prediction here) Caitlyn may experience a pol epiphany.”

I don’t think so. But he had to ask his silly question and believe his answer of Jenner’s political epiphany–or that the independently successful Jenner expects help–because obviously he can’t understand that Jenner’s firm political beliefs and knows that Republicans are diverse and tolerant. Unlike members from other Democratic victim groups, Jenner didn’t whine about his situation, ask for sympathy, denounce those who didn’t understand him or mocked him and didn’t demand government compensation. And unlike the present leader of this country, Jenner “believes in the Constitution.”
This complex dissonance is too much for Cohen who seems to be guilty of basic profiling. But the profilee refuses to fit Cohen’s narrow profile as do Republicans. How confusing for Cohen.
So Cohen has to ask and comment because he is obviously a transgenderist! And a Republicanist! Tweet away Cohen; you are certainly living down to your profile.
Wait a minute! I thought Democrats were against profiling. The dirty little secret is that they invented it, wallow in it and never allow escapees from it.
Thanks again, Congressman, for making your district look like idiots.
