HRC "outed" as DNC lapdog

Wow. We've been saying it all along here in our little blog, but Chris Crain of the Washington Blade actually put it in print in a mainstream LGBT publication. You've gotta go read this:
Rather than actually defend gay families and make the case for gay marriage, HRC is stuck in a three-year strategy of arguing that the American people don’t — and shouldn’t! — care about marriage equality for gay couples.

“Voters want candidates focused on soaring gas prices, a health care crisis and national security,” Solmonese says in the release, “not putting discrimination in the United States Constitution.”

What sort of gay rights strategy is it, when the attention of Americans is focused on our issues, to argue that our rights aren’t important, and refuse to engage our opponents in the debate over our equality?
