    I understand where you're coming from, but I don't think this is a good message for Democrats. Having a bleeding heart and a humongous set of balls are not exclusive concepts, nor should they be.

    As much as I admire Mayor Menino's letter, if I were him, I would have hedged my statements, and added a course of action (LGBT grassroots hostility - free speech is an expressway, Chick-fil-A better speed up or get off at the next exit).

    Still, I can't imagine a more effective way of kickstarting a LGBT grassroots campaign. The only thing that Republicans have on this is "free speech", "free enterprise", and "jobs destroying".  Democrats and LGBT groups can say "Promoting violent infringement of LGBT rights" (which trumps all (R) arguments, just do the research of all the groups C-F-A supports), "McJobs are not of economic focus", and "Food sucks anyway."

    I think, with the best messaging minds on hand, Menino can really turn this to his advantage.
