    " ... I am sorry for the hurt this incident has caused. Regardless of one’s position on issues and policies, such comments are simply unacceptable, are not befitting those who work in the U.S. Senate, and I will not tolerate them from my staff,” the senator said. ... "

    This is great news. A republican US Senator from Georgia fires a staff member for blogging an anti-gay slur. This is some valid proof that not all republicans are ignorant and homophobic. However, I am sure that Senator Saxby Chambliss R-GA will get some harsh criticism from the religious right wing for firing the homophobic staffer.

    As the words go, so go the actions.

    Once saying something becomes unacceptable, acting on the same sentiments become unacceptable.

    It is great news.
