GOP gay group booted from N.C. convention

(CNN) -- Gay Republicans in North Carolina said state party officials told them their group isn't welcome at a convention this weekend because "homosexuality is not normal" and their agenda is "counterproductive to the Republican agenda."

Just read the whole story, it's depressing as hell. You know, half the gay people I know would happily be Republicans if it weren't for this bullshit. The values they're seeking in Massachusetts and elsewhere are Republican core family values. But I don't understand how Log Cabin Republicans can continue to support a party that slaps them in the face over and over.

Also, it seems like a good idea in a tight election to go out of your way to alienate constituents. These are Republicans being banned from a Republican convention! Such smart cookies over there in GoOPer land.
