Excuse me, your desperation is showing

One would be hard pressed to single out any one particularly pathetic response to the whole Mark Foley debacle that erupted recently. I mean, we had Newt Gingrich going on TV to peddle the idea that Republicans wanted to avoid being accused as gay bashers, which is why they let Foley run wild for so many years chasing gorgeous underaged youths.

I realize that we generally have short memories in this country, but surely everyone is going to remember that these people have been demonizing gays every election cycle since the 2000 coup d'etat. All of a sudden Newt Gingrich has a sense of propriety and a new found respect for gay people?

Forgive me, but I'm not buying it.

But sadder by far is this post by a Log Cabin Republican that attempts to portray the Republican party as the last bastion of gay rights in this country.

I'm not sure how in love with your portfolio gains and home equity appreciation values you would have to be to try and present this argument. What more does the right wing have to do to the gay community before these idiots get it?

In the past I've always been kind of tolerant of gay conservatives. I mean they're kind of amusing to have at parties, in the same way that inviting the Dungeons and Dragons club to the high school kegger to spout THEIR idiocy was sort of amusing. But this is honestly too much. I'd prefer people like this deal with their parent and closet issues with a therapist rather than propose desperate ideas like this one.
