For as long as I have involved with or blogging about Log Cabin, I have encouraged its leaders to reach out to the GOP — and have largely lamented their failure to do so.
Since the organization’s current Executive Director R. Clarke Cooper requested to be my Facebook friend (and I accepted), I have been following his feed and found myself first surprised, now just pleased, to learn how often he has indicated his participation in Republican fora in the nation’s capital or voiced his support for various Republican candidates and initiatives. He has even posted favorably about George W. Bush.
Just the other day, I caught this:
The head of Log Cabin acknowledges publicly that he likes the chairman of the Republican National Committee. This is not Patrick Guerriero’s Log Cabin. When that former Massachusetts politician headed Log Cabin in 2004, the organization not only very publicly refused to endorse the Republican presidential nominee, but Mr. Guerriero himself refused to tell reporters how he voted.
Nice to see the Log Cabin Republicans publicly supporting Republicans.
