North America 18 June 2011 Quote of the week "Well, f*** it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing." Print HTML Every now and then politicians say what they think and speak human. Here's Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald who initially opposed same-sex marriage legislation in New York, and then changed his mind: You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing. You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing. I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this. › Morning Call: pick of the papers Jon Bernstein, former deputy editor of New Statesman, is a digital strategist and editor.
