  •  While GAY republicans (0+ / 0-)

    are trying to kill it in the courts, Republicans as a whole don't care about the Log Cabin Republicans or GOProud. As a matter of fact, they work actively to remove gay rights from current law (witness Rick Scott in Florida wanting to bring back the anti-gay adoption bill that Crist vetoed).

      are trying to block it being killed.

      So there are some stupid straight people, and some stupid gay people.  But gays still vote more overwhelmingly Dem than straight folks do, so the whole singling them out as group and complaining that they don't vote dem enough is pretty damn stupid.

      Wow, Independents put down the centrist Blue Dogs, and somehow liberals are to blame?

      •  I'm not singling gays out (0+ / 0-)

        I don't blame them for this debacle any more than I blame the rest of the Dems that didn't turn out.
        I actually wrote the first part wrong in my post, I should have said gay republicans are bringing these issues infront of the courts (not trying to kill it, as I wrote above), while the party they support is actively trying to remove all the advances the GLBT community has had in the last decade.
        It just seems crazy to vote for a Republican if you're gay. Not stupid, just somewhat insane if you're an informed voter.
