    I followed him because I wanted to get an idea of what gay conservatives were thinking. After he RT'd that, I stopped following him. His blog might have a lot of readers, but I'm not interested in the opinions of such a pathetic person.

    I'm gay and I'm pissed. I'm not giving up, I'm not giving in, I'm not backing down, and I'm not going away. Deal with it.

      I rather doubt he is as esparater speculates above, insulated from economic reality. I suspect like many poor tea baggers, he is merely insulated from reality. And probably like most teabaggers, voting against his own economic interests as well as his equality.

      I still follow LogCabinGOP for that reason (see what they are talking about) and for updates on their DADT case. They are ok, though I rarely (ever?) agree with them, at least they don't enrage or sicken me. GOProud and Barron, like Gay Patriot are an embarrassment to politics in general, in addition to gays in specific.

      My deepest gratitude to all the Kossacks that supported my fundraiser for marriage equality in Delaware.

        (sorry, I had to get my Go Steelers in somewhere on game day)

        the GOProud people do drive me crazy because they endorse people like Jim Demint. And they show such love for Sarah Palin. LCR doesn't do that as much (though they endorsed McCain in 2008). I guess their willingness to look past the homophobia of these prominent conservatives helps them get a seat at the table. Maybe that strategy is really working for them. They seem to be getting more attention than the LCRs.

          Barron is an attention whore. And the media loves a train wreck/circus act. The news loves to report on gay Republicans for the "Man Bites Dog" angle and Barron, tweeting naked pictures of himself and using inflammatory, hyperbole language at every opportunity gives them lots of red meat.

          My deepest gratitude to all the Kossacks that supported my fundraiser for marriage equality in Delaware.
