From logs to kindling: Some gay conservs ready to start from scratch

by Jeremy Hooper

Interesting:

A dissident faction of gay conservatives is launching a rival group to the traditional voice of gay Republicans: the Log Cabin Republicans.

GOPROUD, the new 527 group, will launch next week, according to a media advisory. The contact given for the group is Christopher Barron, a former Log Cabin political director who broke with the group.

"Essentially, there's no voice for gay Republicans or gay conservatives in particular in D.C. right now. Log Cabin has been completely and totally absent here in D.C. for months and months," Barron said.
"It has simply moved way too far to the left and is basically indistinguishable from any other gay left organization."

LCR too far left? Wow, that's not how we saw it all summer when they daily defended the "inclusive" McCain/Palin ticket (while thoroughly demonizing gay progressives in the process). But then again, we've never claimed to speak gay elephant.

Your thoughts

It will be interesting to watch them cannibalize each other.

The who can be the most "right-wing conservative" pissing contest should be very enjoyable indeed.

The death rattle of the GOP continues to grow louder and louder.

Maybe we can finally get a true counterpart to the Stonewall Democrats.
