Sure, people get away with lots of terrible things until they don’t. And Mike Pence found that out to his utter shock. “Really? Americans don’t like it when you make it legal to be bigoted as long as you hide behind ‘religious beliefs’? Who woulda thunk that?”
GOP strategists, studying the demographics, know that their future lies with moderate GOPers, independents, and Blue Dog Democrats who aren’t anti-gay but a lot of their base definitely is.
The idea that Obama did NOT do anything on LGBT equality is something that HP has been suggesting almost from the very beginning of his first term. The same goes for his record on job creation. At the very moment that his historic decisions were producing their first effects, HP was eagerly joining the GOTP choir that was crying ‘Where are the jobs?’.
From the party that brought you, “Shutdown at the Oh No Corral” comes a new, charm offensive…though they don’t understand the phrase too well (“So we need to be offensive in a charming way?”)
Romney says corporations should be able to marry, gun manufacturing corporations should be allowed to have shotgun weddings, the energy industry deserves to have a nuclear family if they so choose and competing corporations should have the moral right to get into bed with each other.

Last week, I was here in Las Vegas to celebrate the end of DADT. Once (and hopefully future) Congresswoman Dina Titus discussed what happened in the last session of Congress to make this happen, and representatives from Harry Reid‘s office and Shelley Berkley’s office were also on hand to share […]
What happens when a homeless couple shows up at a homeless shelter? The policies and procedures will punish them for their audacity, and rightfully so.
In the 21st Century, intellect has debased itself to such a point that every action needs simplification to the nth degree, with people being willfully and patently unable to see more than one way of achieving an end.
