  •  Running a gay Republican group (4+ / 0-)

    is a lot like a black guy running a group called KKKproud.

    •  Peter Theil's the one to tell that to. (2+ / 0-)

      You're absolutely right. The Log Cabin guys got spit on at the New York convention but they'd spout Ayn Rand crap and try to keep going with it.

      •  Same time, Theil is a big backer for Ted Cruz. (1+ / 0-)

        How does that compute ???

        It's an odd marriage of interests, the sort Cruz otherwise opposes as a matter of principle: Peter Thiel is a pot-smoking gay man, which makes him the kind of person Cruz supporters would like to launch into some sort of Martian exile. But Thiel is also, crucially, a massively rich bussinessman, which is enough for Cruz to shelve his Tea Party druthers and accept hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Silicon Valley luminary.

        (The usual) bigots have yelled at Cruz for pocketing Thiel's cash, but he has every reason to ignore them: last year, Thiel gave $2 million to Club for Growth, a SuperPAC that in turn poured over $600,000 into Cruz's (successful) senatorial run.

        Or, it's all for love.
