      gays from lesbians, that's not true.

      I honor that service, and I respect [McCain's] many accomplishments, even if he chooses to deny mine. Obama 6/3/08

      •  The Others Have Been Re-elected (0+ / 0-)

        Many told us the news that Polis was gay and then reported it was not news.  

        The logic of that is difficult to follow for us simpletons.

        I think the news, even the news that was not news, was excellent all the way around except for the money spent.

        A plutocracy may not be the best form of government.

        Somehow I suspect Jared Polis might agree.

        I would have broken the lever voting against Joan Fitzgerald(sp?) when she campaigned as the organization candidate had I been fortunate enough to live in Colorado.  

        Best,  Terry

      •  I think it's separating gay from lesbian nt (0+ / 0-)
        •  Yes, but... (0+ / 0-)

          it is still a big accomplishment that a non-incumbent gay man was elected to Congress for the first time in the history of the US. That doesn't take anything away from Tammy Baldwin, the first lesbian to accomplish that. But Polis's victory is a milestone.
