    It bears to remember - the Log Cabin Republicans are Republicans first, and gay right proponents second.

    That must be why they took the Bush DOJ to court to repeal DADT, and are still out there working for it while Democratic gay groups just hold white parties.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      59 democrats and independents are voting to repeal DADT.

      41 republicans are voting against it.

      And the log cabin republicans are seriously blaming the democrats for it not passing rather than trying to get one of the 41 republicans voting against it to flip.

      How the hell is it the dems fault? They care more about the GOP than about gay rights.

        Saying they were was just for gay votes.  No Tpub will ever want to see gays have rights.  Certainly not in their military.
