1. You know, I'm happy to agree that Obama....

...was a serious disappointment when it came to equality up to this point. From the start, we all wanted more from him. And this is certainly, in that respect, late in coming. But come on! If you want to criticize Obama for not being supportive enough, early enough of gay rights then you can't belong to the party that electing homophobes and funneling money into laws like the one that just pasted in NC!

I can't think of an apt enough metaphor for these guys. Criticizing the candidate of the political party fighting for your rights as being "too little, too late" while staunchly supporting the party intent on taking away your rights? With candidates like Rick Santorum and Rick Perry? These gay republicans are, themselves, the metaphor.
