    The conservative Log Cabin Republicans are frantic to appear relevant both to their party, run by conservative bigoted filth, and to our community. That’s a tall order. They’re hopeful that by going after Romney they can somehow slip and slide through the sewer of Republican politics and come out clean on the other end.Romney is doing very badly. In spite of contributing tens of millions to his own campaign he’s been slipping for weeks. And the same charges that LCR indicts Romney for, reversing himself on GLBT rights and women’s absolute right to an abortion apply to most politicians in the twin parties, including the Clintons (DOMA and DADT). They all do and say what’s necessary to get elected. The other problem with Log Cabins focus is that it leaves the other conservative Republicans and centrist/rightist Democrats in the shadows when we should be remorselessly examining all of them in the glare of searchlights. None of them are worthy of a second glance. Giuliani does his mad dance of one step forward and three steps backwards on GLBT questions. Brownback is a brownshirt. Thompson is a Reagan Wannabe. McCain is a sociopath who helped bomb civilians in Vietnam, wants to preside over Bush’s genocide in Iraq (and soon Iran) and who promises that against prisoners will get harsher when he gets in. And Huckabee is, well, he’s just another slick, gutless, treacherous politician from Arkansas. What else needs to be said? The Log Cabin Republicans, like HRC and the Stonewall Democrats are front groups for rightist and centrist parties. They provide cover for them but are marginalized and overlooked. Hence their desperation to appear relevant.
