    Hey, I've got a good idea! Let's all write some really hateful things about them, so they will go join the other side. We're bound to win all the elections that are coming up anyway.

    Ah Dougie, you knew it was coming, :D but seriously I think there should be a National Conservative Republican Coming Out Day, that way it will give all the hypocrites a chance to say, jeez, what will they say?

    'Not that there is anything wrong with that.'

    In all seriousness, I think you have to be seriously self-hating to be a log-cabin republican....

    Sex has a place in politics - usually a victory bonk on election night. But apart from that I think it's best kept as a private matter and not something to be used to evaluate a party's policies.

    Normally I would agree with you. But the repubs have vilified and used gays as a wedge issue for the last eight years.... ever since Karl Rove took over republican strategizing.

    So, yes.. I think they need to take into consideration the level of hatred that is thrown at them. Just my opinion. But to me it would be like a Jew joining the KKK.

    Yes, understood - Rove was very good at organising hate figures, he must have read Nineteen Eighty-Four so many times.

    Rove was a brilliant tactician. He actually started using the "gay" issue back when he was on his debating team, at least according to the doco I watched on him.

    He knew which buttons to push and which groups to pander to but he would have made Machiavelli blush.

    Doug hasn't returned to draw one of his usual jeremiads that somehow or another ends up blaming the other side for all that is wrong with the world and its problems. And he has the nerve yet to pick on Chomsky. But I read the link and wonder if one side is wrong one way, could the other side be wrong too. Weird article kinda apropos of a simple minded categorization and not thought.
