Your gay family vs. America, as fear-mongered by 2010's GOP Senate hopefuls

by Jeremy Hooper

Someday, in some future election, LGBT citizens will know a world where their benign lives, loves and families are respected (or at the very least, tolerated) enough to not be presented to the public as literal threats to society. Someday, the suggestion that gays should be looked at as if they are heat-sinking missiles will get a campaign manager fired, not promoted. Someday, when a voter uses the i-Device that Apple has managed to surgically implant into all of our brains to search for "traditional family" and "one man one woman," the query will no longer turn up hits, since America will have finally grown the frick up enough to admit that there's no one certain kind of family that deserves to be seen as any more American that another.

Unfortunately that day is not now. At least not with Republican/TEA Party candidates of the 2010 midterms:

Someday starts right now. On Tuesday we can help determine how soon we'll reach our tomorrow.
