How do you motivate people after you throw them under the bus?

This is the conundrum a lot of LGBT voters and friends face, I fear.

“[W]hat do I tell my LGBT readers this time around?” said John Aravosis, editor of AMERICABlog. “‘Vote for Democrats. They won’t keep their promises, but they suck less?’ Of course I’m voting, and of course I’m urging our readers to support Democrats who have actually kept their promises. But it’s difficult motivating people to vote once again for the same guys who already threw them under the bus.”
