Because freedom can't protect itself
This week has been a mixed blessing. The Supreme Court decision on the VRA is devastating, but may be a call for mobilization. The Supreme Court decisions on DOMA and Prop 8 are excellent. I'm VERY disappointed at the ACLU's decision to offer a position to Jimmy LaSalvia, who has denigrated gay liberals consistently and supported anti-gay candidates (as head of GOProud, he posed as a pro-gay activist, but it was all a pretense). He recently had a little change of heart at CPAC, but he is not a true ally.
