    MANY times. And it is FULL of "Giffords Republicans." full of liberal Republicans in general? Do you know the names Jim Kolbe, Toni Hellon, and Mike Hellon???

    Not a single issue voter, but if I was, gay rights would be it. I just want Democrats to be tough. And I wish Obama were tougher. That's all. I'm a proud gay!

      Do I get to ask any?
      Of course I know who Jim Kolbe is. Being in LD-27 I'm not as familiar with the Hellon's, but have a vague awareness of their existence.
      Now my turn. Why was it necessary to put the word CongressWOMAN in that capitalization? Should I infer something from your sig line?

        Speaker and how things have come a long way. Then she throws Nancy under the bus? Giffords isn't qualified to carry Pelosi's Prada handbag.

        •  That's an acceptable explanation, although (0+ / 0-)

          it might have been better spelled out in the text. Obviously any inference I might have drawn would have been inappropriate.
          I still disagree with the necessary truth of your assertion that Rep. Giffords threw the former Speaker under the bus, and neither you nor I really know what, if any, transactions occurred privately between them.
          Politics ain't beanbag, as Mr. Dooley noted.

      •  The inference I made.... (1+ / 0-)

        to the capitalization is this:  Democratic women might want to support other Democratic women achieve as much power as possible in Congress (since women are underrepresented there).

        Should BoyBlue (and the other gays reading this diary's thread) infer something about comments in this thread which ask "Why are you telling us this?" (and thank you bagman for your appropriate reply to that question....I'd tip you 100xs for that if I could), or that make an ad hominmen attack on the diarist by suggesting he's hysterical (you know us gays, how fucking hysterical we can be) and needs to "calm down"?

          ...that five kossacks (I'm naming them in case they delete their tip) tipped the ad hominem comment.

          Adam B, homogenius, Annalize5, mcronan, bythesea, you should all be ashamed for tipping such an attack.

          •  It was an attack on the tone of the writing. (1+ / 0-)

            However, had I known the author was gay (I take your word for it), I wouldn't have tipped it b/c of the word hysterical -- nor do I like seeing it used against women.  For that reason, I'll pick up the rec.

          •  Thank you so much for ur support. (1+ / 0-)

            I appreciate it...bigtime. and, if you're gay like i am, even on progressive sites like this, we need to stick together. Giffords voted to repeal DADT and always accepted my being gay. THAT'S kinda why her vote "hurt" so much. I am bringing it up at our next local Democratic precinct meeting. Thanks again, Dave!!!!
