It seems that whenever I turn to the MSM or gay media for a report on gay Republicans, they are either badmouthing us as self-hating insecure hypocrites with wide stances or noting how unwelcome we feel in the GOP while pointing out that we disagree with our party on any number of issues. Â Or how gay Republicans refuse to back certain GOP candidates. Â
The MSM just loves stories of a divided GOP.
Note how they were all over the story of Log Cabin running ads against Mitt Romney in Iowa and New Hampshire early in this presidential campaign.
Well, today while observing the festivities, chatting with fellow bloggers and scanning the news and blog, I found that Yahoo! for about two hours (as of this writing) led with the story of Log Cabin’s endorsement, “Gay Republicans endorse McCain.”
Never seen a story with Log Cabin backing GOP get such prominent coverage.
The article, while generally fair, was not without bias:
Being openly gay is not easy in a party with a strong base of evangelical Christians who read the Bible as the literal word of God and believe there are biblical sanctions against homosexuality.
Um, how would they know that?
It’s a lot easier being an openly gay person in the GOP than being an openly Republican gay person in West Hollywood.
