When Anuzis was last up for the job of RNC Chair, Gay Rights did some digging and found out that he has a surprisingly strong anti-gay record, even for a Republican:
Did Anuzis defend the reputation of a Michigan State University student, Kyle Bristow, who brought a Canadian Nazi to speak on campus, and frequently ridiculed members of Michigan State's LGBT community online, calling them "freaks" "scum" and "savages"? Yes.
And Crooks and Liars thinks he has a tendency to support fascists. All of which is to say: He looks like about as mainstream Republican as they come. He's been a Republican stalwart for ages, and he can't really boast any Teabaggy outsider-ness. This is a continuation of the Tea Party's reassembling with the Republican Party. But at least he isn't black, right, Teabaggers?
