    Ms. Baldwin has made no secret of her lesbian lifestyle.
    Oh, that's OK: I make no secret of my heterosexual lifestyle, either.  
    She is a vocal supporter of gay pride and the LGBT community.
    Good.
    She told the liberal Huffington Post that her Senate candidacy is historic.
    It may very well be.  
    Ms. Baldwin stressed that “breaking through these glass ceilings has a ripple effect.” In other words, her election would—and should—encourage other avowed gays and lesbians to enter high office.
    Good, if it works out that way.
    She sees herself as the tip of the spear for the LGBT community—a relentless advocate for homosexual issues.
    Good for her!  And the LGBT community.
    She attacks traditional marriage.
    Traditions change.  We didn't always have bi-racial couples, you know.  
    She led the fight to repeal the ban on gays openly serving in the military.
    Awesome.  
    She consistently assaults our Judeo-Christian heritage.
    Even awesomer if it is true.  Religion has no place in secular politics.    
    [...] Ms. Baldwin’s success so far has been due to her ability to mask her hard left-wing views.
    Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Say no more!
    She is portraying herself as a moderate liberal.
    But you just said her policies make her the Lesbian Lenin?  Now I'm confused....
    In fact, she is a radical feminist who champions gay marriage,
    OK, back on track.  And Good!
    abortion on demand,
    Good.
    government-funded contraception
    Even better.
    and war on religious freedom.
    By protecting me from having you ram your religion down my throat?  Your "freedom" stops at someone else's rights.
    She is the Sandra Fluke of Wisconsin politics—a postmodern socialist who wants government to underwrite birth control pills and homosexual unions.
    Good.
    Ms. Baldwin is the antithesis of the working-class liberalism embodied by Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman. [...]
    Uh, Truman, maybe.  Roosevelt?  Not so much.  I think he'd be right there with her.  Eleanor, too.  
    Mr. Thompson is a Catholic. He does not wear his faith on his sleeve, yet he should confront Ms. Baldwin about her socialist feminism.
    He should ram his religion down her throat...
    Wisconsin’s electorate needs to know just how far out of the mainstream she really is.
    If you consider yourself mainstream, then yeah.  They need to know.
    The last thing they need is Barney Frank in a dress.
    No, that's what they need most to countermand the huge fuckup they elected for governor.
