In last years presidential election, Barack Obama won 70 percent of the gay vote, John McCain just 27 percent.

I wonder who is taking Larry Sinclair’s place these days

Soon the military will be no different from public school and completely useless to actually fight.
Excellent. See, I knew I pinged the right person. I think his claim to be “straight” is bogus. I guess he feels hugely successful now that Zer0-in-Chief is his mouthpiece.
Oh yeah, and special thanks to PA: First, Murtha and now Murphy. Sheesh!!
