Uncle Tom's Cabin Club

Um, er, the Log Cabin Club (Gay Republicans) announced yesterday that they will not endorse Bush for president. According to the article, 1 million homosexuals voted Republican during the last election. Some friends of mine express dismay over that number. Actually, there's a good, conservative argument for applying civil liberties to homosexuals that revolves around freedom to live as you like without fear of government interference and yet to be treated equallly under the law. Unfortunately, while the Republican party remains under seige by fundamentalists, gay people are not likely to find a friend with that party. Frankly, I don't know why they even bother. I wonder how long the fundamentalists (which are pro-government activists of the same ilk that Democrats are accused of being) will be allowed to control that party or if true conservatives will eventually break off and form their own party.
