In the news: Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Wednesday signed into law a bill that will legalize civil unions for same-sex couples in the Aloha State. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has ordered the Justice Department to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and woman, according to a statement Wednesday from Attorney General Eric Holder.
ONLY ON THE BLOG: Answering todays OFF-SET questions is Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies.
According to its mission statement, GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy. GOProud promotes our traditional conservative agenda by influencing politics and policy at the federal level.

Jimmy, that was spelled U-G-H not H-U-G !!!
Not true, Jimmy.
I think “embrace” was a poor choice of words.
I’d like to start the following groups within the Democratic Party:
2) pro-growth tax-cutters
3) small government freedom-ers
Here’s a zinger from the interview:
LaSalvia: “Like GOPoud, shes (Carville’s wife) staunchly conservative, but not conventional. Shes much more edgy and cool than your stereotypical stuffy conservative. Im sure that the party at her house will be like most GOProud parties a blast!”
When talking to other homosexuals, these cowards are quick to stereotype other conservatives. Then brag about their parties. Their highest priorities seem to be sex and partying.
Will these people never stop talking about their odd sexual preferences?
Not true. And you KNOW it’s not true. Stop propagating lies about conservatives.
LOL!! Good one!
With the debauchery into which our society is sliding, is it really any mystery as to why so many good conservatives shy away from running for President? Who in their right mind would want to preside over this mess?
No one who supports these jerks or those who work with them is a real conservative.
It couldn’t be plainer. Their agenda is not to bring gay activists into the conservative movement, but to bring stupid pseudo-conservatives into the gay activist movement.
CPAC is dead. And I hope that Ann Coulter comes to her senses and repudiates her support for GOProud.
“They now seem giddy to work with Obama and James Carville’s wife in order to mandate normalization of their lifestyle.”
James Carville’s wife? Is that Mary Matalin?
This man is a subversive agent in the Conservative movement. I do not think for a moment that he is not a Rat plant.
Hey! Don't judge us by what we do with our penis' while we organize a group based on what we do with our penis'!
It seems to me they are looking for anyone to accept them ,therefore giving them an ok for what they do.
It ain’t happening on planet earth folks.
When your big happy happy party is over , you will pay the bill.
Go in peace.
Embracing now are we? Next they’ll be “intwined” standing before Obama with a marriage cert... there is a bridge I shall not cross!
In before the first “PALIN SUPPORTS GOPROUD!” post.
"Gay marriage" is a silly desire, and I've already convinced one young gay man of this. This is a man who actually obtained one of those "marriages" done in SF a few years ago.
This young man doesn't vote yet, because he doesn't consider himself well informed. I've encouraged him to wait until he becomes better informed. In the mean time, I take occasional opportunities to educate him about areas where his interests are in-line with Republican interests.
It's more productive to educate people than to run around screaming "faggot".
“I am constantly astounded by the number of FReepers who don’t want gays to vote Republican”
What are you talking about. Of course I want gays to vote Republican. I also want pedophiles, wife-beaters, and 911 truthers to vote Republican. What I don’t want is these sick groups FORMING A GOP PAC NORMALIZING THEIR SICK LIFESTYLE!
Votes are one thing - flaunting and forcing your sodomite lifestyle on others is something entirely different. Would CPAC have welcomed a group calling itself GOPedo or GOPalchy or GOPilloppers?
