Gay Baiting

Obviously I understand that the point of this kind of thing is pure gay baiting. Nancy Pelosi is going to force you to be gay, as all people in San Francisco are required to be by law.

Still I find the attempt to demonize San Francisco rather odd. It's a pretty nice place. Lots of people travel there for tourism, not because they want to experience forced gayness, but because they hear it's a fun place.

I have no doubt that this kind of thing works for the 30 percenters, but I still think this kind of regional demonization the GOP has been doing for years just doesn't have the broader appeal it once did.
