It is interesting, however, that Republican members of Congress are still gay-bashing – they’d toned it done the past few years, seemingly out of fear for their own re-elections, and more generally, coming off as the wacky extremists that everyone already thinks they are. It’s interesting that they’d get upset about a speech defending the human rights of anybody. GOP Senator Jim DeMint, who is from… wait for it… South Carolina (surprise!), is the leader of the anti-human rights pack in the Senate apparently.
It’s too bad that Senator DeMint doesn’t have better things to do with his time than continue the age-old southern tradition of beating up minorities.
