Anti-gay-RepublicansWe should really just give those folks a big ol' hug

I got the most infuriatingly stupid pitch last night. The subject:

"For Further Progress on Gay Rights, It's Time to Stop Demonizing Republicans."

Excuse me? It's the other way around, and it's not a figure of speech when they do it. When Republicans talk about gay people, they literally talk about us being against nature, against God.

Furthermore, have you ever heard of gay activists and/or pro-gay politicians refusing to work with pro-gay Republicans? No, because it doesn't happen.

The body of the pitch continued:

Nate Silver
In case you don't recognize him, that's Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight—he's the dude who successfully predicted most of the results of the 2012 elections. He was widely derided by conservapundits, but one of his biggest critics has already eaten crow.

A Romney/Ryan '12 Playlist Comments (3)

Romney_ryan_rect-460x307

Look, I'm not a former candidate—I don't need to be classy. And it's great that Mitt Romney gave a classy, gracious concession speech (eventually), but it only came after months of saying and doing horrendous things that threatened many things I hold dear. So if you're feeling groovy and don't want any post-election snark, skip this. Otherwise, here's my Romney/Ryan playlist—my last post on their losing ticket.

If Romney won't concede soon, President Obama should simply give his victory speech before Romney has conceded.
