“Well, let me define this. I’m against gay marriage, but I’m for gay unions. But I don’t want any sexuality defined. If you have a union and designate someone, if you go to the hospital, your overseer, that’s fine with me. Gay marriage I don’t think is necessary because, under the law, if you legalize gay marriage, those guys who want to marry six babes—I know you know who they are— hey’d have to get legal too under equal protection. As for rap, only gangsta rap. I think it’s a corrupting, corroding influence for children. Every teacher I’ve talked to from a poor neighborhood, they’ve said these kids have adopted the f- word. They’re calling fifth-grade girls 'hos' and 'bitches.' And don’t give me this argument about parents, ’cause a lot of these poor kids don’t have parents who care about them. I’m conservative on some issues. I’m liberal on some issues. But I’m a common-sense kinda guy.”
