    I want to add that I think there are two themes going on here that are both legit. For Republicans to boo any soldier, especially given their gross abuse of the phrase "We support our troops", is pretty fucked up. But they did boo. And they did it because he is gay, making (not that it wasn't already) homosexuality an issue that overrides service to country. I can see both your points, and I hope this is an area where both can be seen as very honest and distinct issues that need addressed.
