    1. Hawyer on Jun 17, 2008 12:04:17 PM:

      Well of course, we homosexuals, unworthy as we are, simply have to hang on the tattered coattails of any Democrat - understanding full well that - at least at the national level- we are still the political third rail: touch us and you're dead.

      And woo-hoo Chris. Obama said he wasn't bothered by gay marriage in California. Now that's a rousing accolade of support. Sort of like saying your sister doesn't sweat much for a fat chick.

      For that, I am troubled by Mr. Obama's potential to come through in any proactive way. Here's the hawyer sniff test:

      1. Obama is a Negro (OK half Negro). And we already know his religious moorings. There is possibly no more homophobic claque in the US than black activist churches. Now maybe I missed the footage of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright comparing the struggles of homosexuals with the travails of slavery, but I'm betting that one is NOT in his polemic repertoire.

      2. Separate but equal. Now where I have I heard that one before? Ummm. Let me think. Who is this black man who now thinks that arrangement is just dandy when if comes to another politically unpopular minority.

      3. States rights. Now where have I head that one before? I'm thinking of Ronald Regan's 1980 presidential kick-off in Philadelphia, Mississippi - where he extolled the virtues of Nixon's Southern Strategy - AKA State's Rights. AKA unambiguous code for old school cracker bigots. AKA Southern Democrats disaffected by the civil rights movement. Who is this black man who now thinks "equal protection under law" should be up for majority vote at the state level.

      The Hawyer sniff test picks up tainted inventory.
