And maybe the main reason for that is that Democrats can be openly gay and still get elected? Are there any openly gay Republican members of Congress or any state legislatures? If so, I've never heard of them. Mary Cheney would be the closest match I can think of.
I was going to make a snarky comment, but just thought better of it. I think I will just say I am with you Den, I can't think of any national openly gay elected r's. I am sure there are some elected gay r's, there is the log cabin republicans.
