HomoQuotable – John Berry

“In under two years, President Obama and his record number of LGBT appointees have accomplished so much for LGBT Americans. His and Congress’s historic achievement of securing health care reform finally cements the most important protections for those in our community who need them most – especially those living with HIV and AIDS. “Hospital visitation rights for all Americans, expanded ...

HomoQuotable – Michelangelo Signorile

“The Republican Party would like nothing better than to see the discontent in the Democratic base help them install truly the most extreme lot of candidates we have seen in many years.

HomoQuotable – David Mixner

“No one has been more gravely disappointed and, at times livid, with the practically non-existent record of President Obama on LGBT equal rights. Over and over again I have held this administration’s feet to the fire in an effort to force them to move forward in our struggle for freedom. As we all know by now, those pleas often have ...

Where The Dems May Lose House Seats

FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver today takes aim at some of the polls crying doom and gloom for House Democrats previously thought to be safe, cautioning that the volume of losses may not be as bad as some fear. Many of the polls are either partisan-affiliated, or were “robopolls” that used automated scripts rather than live interviewers, or both. Polls with an ...

Nate Silver’s Senate Forecast

GetEQUAL: Close The GayTM

GetEQUAL has launched an internet campaign calling on its followers to “withhold time and money from political entities that are not fighting as hard for our equality as they are for our checkbooks.” We’re not the first ones to voice frustration with both Democrats and Republicans for holding our equality hostage (see here, here, and here).

HomoQuotable – Steve Hildebrand

“The Democratic strategy right now is to run from the president, run from important proposals that help this country. If we’re not going to do something about health care, if we’re not going to do something about climate change, if we’re not going to do something about the economy, about the deficit, about the war, Washington is going to get ...
