Log Cabin Republicans Admit: GOP Platform Is ‘Ugly And Harmful’ (But They’ll Probably Vote Republican Anyway)

The HomoCONs at the Log Cabin Republicans have been smacked in the face with some harsh realities this past week at the Republican National Convention and not that their dreams have been dashed, Log Cabin leaders are lashing out at  the GOP for its completely unsurprising bigotry. “The platform is ugly and  harmful,” the group’s director of programs, Casey Pick, told NPR.

Pick also says that social conservatives’ tenacious commitment to  discrimination was only bolstered by her and her colleagues’ involvement. “We  lost,” Pick said. “And you could say the social conservatives in our party  dropped the hammer harder because we were there.”

WHAT A SHOCK!

But what won’t be a surprise is that the LCR will probably NOT endorse Barack Obama for President and perhaps might still endorse Mitt Romney and all of its members will probably still vote a “straight” Republican ticket in November.

INSANITY!
