6. I haven't made up my mind on this issue
I'm upset that individuals private life matter in public life. If a man or woman chooses to keep their lives private then I believe they should be able to do so. Unfortunately, the RW has used their version of family values and intolerance against the Dems while leading lives of hypocrisy. I don't see a good way to stop them without pointing out their hypocrisy and dishonesty. I applauded when Henry Hyde's affair was reported, when Livingston had to resign, and when Gingrich's endless wives and scandals were discussed. I also can't help but laugh when leaders of a party that is held up as more family oriented while they push bigotry and hatred of the GLBT community are outed as members of that community. Still, I think my seeing humor and wanting retribution shows my own crassness and vindictiveness. I think your opinion is correct but I can't help enjoying discomforting some of these hypocrites.
