" fueling the storyline that conservatives are scared of gays." Indeed, Jonah; you are the one fueling that storyline. Excluding the homosexual lobby is nothing even controversial; considering they'd be there only to fuel their agenda. We aren't afraid of "gays." We're just wise to them.

It is controversial for CPAC to change their position regarding gays at their event. Minorities tend to look for instances where they are 'marginalized'. The word is overused but in this case it is accurate; recently they could speak there, and now they cannot.

You can tap dance all day. Nobody in CPAC is afraid of them. That's what I corrected about Jonah's jeremiad.

What's 'afraid of' got to do with anything?

I don't know about you but last election we had too few people pulling the R lever at the polls. Going out of your way to offend people isn't the way to get more votes.

It's a lose-lose game, they didn't need to play.

I'm not fooling with homosexuals for ANY damn reason. They ought to be marginalized; let the Democrats claim them. Politically correct politics is a losing game for Republicans. The quicker we realize that, the better off we'll be. If a voter is homosexual and supports a Republican, let him vote Republican. Fat chance!

And don't say we're afraid of them. They just suck! Sooner or later decent people have to draw the line IMHO.

What can you do with a man like Chris Christie?

The answer, according to many with the conservative movement: Throw him overboard. And while we're at it, let's toss the gays over the side too.

The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him.

Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced Republicans...
