4. Nope. He feels cornered, like most Americans. There is no representation for,...
,...us, the common people.

I doubt he'll do Democrat. He's certainly rejected the Republican party.

5. And they end up booing him, a man who served his country admirably
Just for being gay? Republicans are fucking scum, period.

7. they actually booed him?
Everyone of them who booed should have been taken outside and put in a pillory in a gay bar, with a sign hanging around their neck: I booed a veteran because he was gay.

10. I heard it differently... seemed to me the audiece was supportive of
the veteran. I thought they were softly booing the shitstains on the stage.

I guess I'll hafta see the replay. I could be wrong, but I felt they were supporting our patriot. I HOPE I'm right!!!

14. Maybe I was in such a state
of revulsion from the flood of abhorent, ghastly shit coming off those podiums, that I had my timing thrown off (I was more listening to the veteran soldier than the audience, I guess).

I'm sorry if I got it wrong. Damn. How could the audience disrespect that man?

8. Why assume he isn't? There are the log cabin Republicans, you know.
Why are you questioning whether he is a registered Republican?

Because he is gay?

9. I'm questioning it because I didn't hear anyone else say it.
So you shouldn't assume he is a republican.

17. too bad you're so eager to dismiss him just because he
supports someone you don't. Just how are you different than the repukes? Reactionary much?

19. I don't dismiss him, but the media will (now).
In fact, it's already done: he's been edited out of the
CNN video. But his actions are sure to turn up on all
the Reich-Wing gasbag shows today.
