Doug Lambert was fired for calling Democratic leader Ray Buckley "a faggot."

If Doug Lambert ever had delusions of grandeur and invincibility, the Mouth That Roared is quickly finding  out that he is as expendable as a dead rat on a sinking ship.

Over the weekend, the GOP activist called New Hampshire Democratic Chairman Ray Buckley “a faggot.” But that was only a small part of Lambert’s outburst. Here’s how it was reported in the Laconia Citizen:

After Lambert called Buckley a faggot, co-host Skip Murphy suggested they turn off the live Web feed but, instead, Lambert looked into the camera, made some dancelike movements that were intended to mimic the way gay men walk, and said, “Yeah, you faggot. That’s right, I said it and I meant it. You are a reprobate. How the people, the Democrats — I think of some of the gray-haired ladies from the old party — would stand behind you is beyond me. You are a disgrace to yourself, to humanity, to mankind and to your party. Other than that, happy birthday, Ray, and many more — not,” he said before the feed suddenly went dead.

Since then Lambert has been fired as co-chair of Frank Guinta’s congressional campaign, he has been evicted by WEMJ AM, the radio station that aired his weekly radio show, a local newspaper, the Laconia Daily Sun, has promised to stop publishing Lambert’s rants, and the high and mighty of New Hampshire’s Republican party have eviscerated him in the press and denounced his homophobic comments.

The details can be found here.

Lambert will continue to serve on the Gilford, NH, budget committee, only because as an elected official he cannot be removed by the town for being an ass. The “enabler” in Lambert’s world is his media partner, Skip Murphy. Murphy is also on the Gilford budget committee. The two of them are like a wrestling tag-team, basically bullying the rest of the town into doing what they want.

The best Murphy could say about his partner’s homophobic outburst is that it was “a dumb thing.” I can only hope that Gilford’s voters will have something more to say to both of these cretins in the next election —

“Your fired!”
