The road to 1600 Pennsylvania winds through an SPLC hate group's backyard?

by Jeremy Hooper

Q. What does a gay-unfriendly 2008 Republican presidential nominee (and likely 2012 candidate) do to bide his or her between-elections time?

Quitting your job as governor? Adultery scandals? Speaking for an organization that has fallen below this nation's many other gay-unfriendly "pro-family" groups to earn special "hate group" status? Sheesh, who is advising these GOP White House hopefuls?!?!
