    My Representative is the big cheese in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
    She's in favor of overturning DADT.

    Heh. Fortenberry is not going to change his mind, no matter how many email and phone calls I make to his office.

    Good luck to those who's reps are willing to use their brains icon_smile.gif

    Same problem here. Tulsa Rep. John Sullivan might change his mind if the Roman Catholic denomination changed its anti-Gay politics but he recently sent a letter to a constituent saying he wouldn't support ENDA because it might somehow limit the speech of religious groups. Huh?

    And in the Senate, we've got Dr. Coburn and Jim Inhofe, both ultra right extremists.

    I keep wishing we could get alternate representatives......kind of like those break away Episcopalians get African bishops because contacting my reps is merely an exercise in masochism and maybe a pointless affirmation of faith in democracy.
