One possibility may involve Newt's response to a gay activist who wanted Newt to "reach out" more to gays (vote for Obama), and Matt Drudge being gay.
Maybe, but the key is Newt is the ONLY one that threatens Romney winning the primary. Meanwhile, there is NOTHING good to say about Romney. Hence the only strategy for all of Romney’s backers is to trash Newt.
You may be right.
We need to be careful about groups like Log Cabin Republicans. I am not so narrow-minded to think that only social conservatives can be good Republicans, but it would take a great deal for me to trust a homosexual conservative the same way I would, for example, a retired Marine NCO who happens to be an atheist.
Homosexuals had serious trouble getting security clearances not many years ago. There were reasons for that.
