It's so fun when conservative republicans try to find that "middle ground" between executing all homosexuals and executing just some of them.

Poor Billy Simon was dropped from a fundraiser with Mary Cheney.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Republican group said Tuesday that GOP gubernatorial nominee Bill Simon would be dropped from a fund-raiser with Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter because he reneged on a promise to declare a Gay Pride Day if elected.

The Republican Unity Coalition, which was formed to promote ties between gays and non-homosexuals, said Simon would not be welcome at Thursday's fund-raiser in Los Angeles. He had been scheduled to speak along with Mary Cheney.

I'd like to give the RUC and the LCRs some credit, but they're not stupid enough to support a loser.

Signorile has something to say about these issues in his latest column.
