    Yeah, but 90% of that 25% were in the closet.

    Republicans have had a lock on the Alby Grant portion of the gay community, its the rest they are having a problem with:



    You have to be a Big Love watcher to get that though.

    Interesting--I wouldn't say this constitutes conservatives redefining themselves, as there were some not happy with the group, however, Cheney's comments on DADT and the presence of the this group at CPAC are steps in the right direction as far as getting more in touch with the mainstream and the next generation of voters.

    I've never understood the Fiscal/Social dichotomy in modern conservatism. Fiscal wants less government involvement. Social wants government involved in certain aspects of people's lives.
    And, Liberals want to socially engineer the country into the image they like the most and don't care how many liberties they have to destroy to do it.
