On the HRC

The other day I received an interesting email from the Human Rights Campaign. I didn't keep it, but the general gist of the thing was about their response to how Rick Warren, "who equates gay marriage with incest, pedophilia and polygamy, was chosen to speak at President-elect Obama's inauguration." The HRC was clearly upset by this turn of events.

All I have to say is WTP, HRC? You backed Obama without reservation, never once (as far as I have ever seen) calling him out on any of his alliances with anti-gay bigots, and now you're acting all surprised about the Rick Warren thing? What the hell did you think was going to happen? Sure, the Warren fiasco is disappointing, but hardly surprising.

At least not to those of us who haven't been willing to look the other way when it was politically expedient to do so.
