Fascinating. And while Roemer’s “some of my best extended relatives are gay” comments are bit odd, even they are indicative of a Republican party that is desperate not to come off as anti-gay. We saw Boehner’s recent comments on DOMA, and even Rick “Man-Dog” Santorum’s comments. They’re all backing off from the anti-gay. And several other GOP presidential candidates couldn’t be bothered to comment on the recent DOMA news at all.
It’s a clear shift in the culture wars. Now to figure out what caused it.
