Lordy! More Gays in the GOP!

While I was in the City of Brotherly Love this morning, I happened to pick up USA Today and saw this little tidbit:
It's from an article on how the GOP plays it both ways. They bash gays and lesbians for political gain during the elections but then put gay and lesbians in very prominent places in their administration. In the above picture, Secretary of State Rice swears in the new global AIDS coordinator Mark Dybul. As first lady Laura Bush looked on, Rice singled out his partner, Jason Claire, (who was holding the bible Dybul was swearing in on) and Claire's mother. Rice referred to her as Dybul's "mother-in-law."

In fact it seems like the higher ups in all the Republican offices are gay! Someone just outted Florida's Republican candidate for governor too! Who knew the Republican party was gaier than the first row at a Barbra Streisand concert!

I think the Republican elite thinks it's okay for rich discreet quiet people to be gay. They just don't like uppity working class gays who kiss in the streets and want to marry for love.
