This poll from (suprise) 60 Minuest and Vanity Fair is a perfect example of how you can get people to say whatever you want them to say, as long as you phrase the question correctly. The idea that more than half of this country would accept a gay president is, of course laughable, when you consider the number of general state votes that have rejected gay marriage. It also speaks to the fact that people generally give the politically correct answer to polling question (as the Dems were so fond of pointing out when Obama was running). If normal sexual preferrences didn't matter to voters, we certainly would have had more than one unmarried CIC in the past 234 years.

I’m so sick of “gay” this and “gay” that and “gay” everything.

You’d think that 95% of the population was gay or something. Sheesh; enough already.

Worse yet, how “scientific” was this poll? 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair are not exactly the epitome of fair and balanced, IMHO.

My guess is they got 100 drag queens in SF for this poll, given the money required to live in that hell-hole.

Stopped right there. I know an agenda driven push poll when I see one.

What difference is race, age , sexual orientation or sex? The left cares about that crap. The focus should be strictly on a candidates governing philosophy. If Ronald Reagan, Bill Buckley or Barry Goldwater were re-incarnated as homo, would conservatives support him?

That's right. We should call them what they are...homosexuals.

Race and sex are traits one is born with. Age is a fact of life. Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice that calls into serious question the judgment of the person making it. IMNSHO, it makes a big flippin' difference!

And if Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater or Bill Buckley were homosexuals, they wouldn't be conservatives, because homosexuality is incompatible with conservatism.

Question: Would American voters be more comfortable with a gay candidate who could produce documentation for having been born in Hawaii, or a straight candidate who was born in Peurto Rico and spoke English as a Second Language?

Okay, I get the appeal of a Miss America who’s not only smoldering hot but likes girls in, you know, that way [cue the vintage porn flick bow-chicka-bow-wow]. But the notion of an NFL QB who likes to get under the center both on and off the field...I don’t know that I need that in my head. And as to a gay president...I think the bad ones are perfectly capable of screwing more people at one time than they could ever stick their junk in anyway.

As far as the director for my biopic...John Landis. And Harold Ramis does the screenplay.

You do not see a glaring difference between being against gay marriage and not caring what a leader’s sexual affiliation is????

That's how my generation got brainwashed into the notion that 10% of the population is gay. They projected a survey of prisoners, Catholic Priests, and guys who had been marooned on desert islands together onto the the entire population. And the survey declared "gay" anyone who had ever had any sort of same-sex contact even once, or had fantasized about someone of the same sex. I'm not making this up, that's where that figure comes from. I can remember being in health class in an all-boys Catholic HS, when the liberal teacher told us: "There are 30 boys in this room. Three or four of you are gay." This was in a Catholic school! Meanwhile, according to more scientific surveys, the numbers are more like 1-3% of the adult popluation, with gay men ournumbering lesbians significantly.

Certainly we would, but none of those men WERE gay. I can't imagine one of them BEING gay, because I have known more than my share of gay men in my lifetime. Even the conservatives were nothing like the three men you mentioned.

Damn, I always forget to vote in the online poll whenever I visit the CBS website. Or watch their TV station for that matter. I'm usually too busy changing the batteries in my smoke detector, or something like that.
