Pajamas Media just posted my piece on how some gays are reacting to Sarah Palin. Please note, given how the gay media has reacted to her, I chose to focus on the support she enjoys in the gay community:
Republicans and even a good number of gay Democrats.
For a moment those who sat with me at the Pajamas TV booth last Thursday afternoon at the Republican convention must have thought I was crazy. Soon after reading an e-mail from a left-leaning lesbian friend with whom I almost always lock horns on matters politcal, I had to share the news–with anyone who would listen. This outspoken woman had informed me that for the first time in “30 years,” she’d be voting Republican in large measure because of her enthusiams for Sarah Palin.
She has a brother in Alaska where they’re impressed with their Republican Governor. “Love that woman,” my friend gushed.
My friend is not the only gay person enthusiastic about John McCain’s running mate. Nearly all my readers are excited about her nomination, some have even been pushing her as potential vice-presidential pick as since the summer of 2007.
