    It's kind of like the mugger who nicked your wallet proclaiming that he's helping you free yourself of the tyranny of wordly concerns.

    At one time, the Republican Part was quite reasonable. That was before it was taken over by a bunch of crazy reactionaries.

    But gay Republicans are all horrible, traitorous people! Oh wait. That's just something intolerant assholes say...

    Nice to see so many Republicans, gay or straight, on our side. There's room on the bandwagon for everyone.aq

    La Mehlman made himself rich in part by designing the 2004 "God, Gays, and Guns" platform. We're a wedge issue because of him, and he only works for the other side because Bill Maher outed him a few years back. Now that he's living in Chelsea or whatever in a luxury apartment with a paid piece, he's cashing in by working for gay rights advocates now that his former bosses wouldn't touch him if he was made of gold.

    That's not selfless heroism. It's mercenary opportunism.

    "Enhances freedom" = "Get that check"

    I'm not sure that his fellow Republicans will buy his reasoning ( e.g., less government, commitment to family values, etc.).

    Quite honestly, I don't know what to make of folks like him who worked against marriage equaity a few years ago and are now for it. Some rational insight and enlightenment, please!
