Republican + gay is as silly as Republican + black. You're in a tent with people who utterly despise you. It represents an utter lack of judgment.

To be honest, I think lots of Democrats are just as homophobic and racist as Republicans.  :-\

It's just not a part of their official platform.  :P

The difference? Republican court the homophobic. It's just too sad and too pathetic to see people trade away their dignity for a few dollars back from the IRS. I have nothing but contempt for them. And that's the truth.

I think I feel more pity than contempt.  I think it's kind of sad.  :(

But I may feel differently depending on what happens in November.  We'll see.  :P

And I'm not a Salon member.  :-\

Pity I reserve for children. If they're paying their dues, they're grown folk: they've earned the contempt.

I don't think the issue is so much what the Democrats have done for you lately...but rather what the Republicans have never done and have made a point of saying they'll never do...

Well, it's not worth it to me to join a party whose tenents I don't believe in, just because they are less against gay marriage than the party that i identify more with on almost every other issue.

Are you gay?
