If memory serves me correctly, Senator Obama was counting on the ‘youth’ vote* as his secret weapon. That’s fine, but then why on earth would Obama court virulent anti-gay bigots, especially when younger voters of all political affiliations are the most likely to be tolerant of gays? This certainly won’t help him in the primaries. Unlike some political issues, gay bashing is easy to understand and remember. Is there something I’m missing, or is he just desperately trying to prove how piss poor a candidate he really is?
*I always thought eighteen meant adulthood. Presumably, we’re not registering fifteen year-olds to vote.
