I’m a lawyer. I know a lot about gay rights. I imagine I’d be one hell of an expert witness for the folks trying to uphold Prop 8 and DOMA in court. (Just imagine the PR coup alone of NOM getting me working on their side.) If I farmed myself out to the religious right bigots, at say an average rate of $520/hour, to help them defend Prop 8 and DOMA in court, would the same Democrats, and Democratic lawyers, who are now defending Paul Clement defend me?
No they wouldn’t. I’d face a boycott of my blog that would put it out of business, and rightly so.
Or how about if I helped the crazy birthers with their lawsuits against President Obama. Certainly those lawsuits raise a constitutional question (even though they’re bat-sh*t crazy). Would White House spokesman Jay Carney, and Attorney General Eric Holder, praise my work in attacking the President with a line of argument that has serious racial overtones?
No they wouldn’t.
It’s amazing the double standard that so many Democrats have when the victims are gay.
