Gays and lesbians did not turn out strongly for Democrats on Tuesday. I guess half-hearted efforts just don’t rally the base when you treat them as an after-thought. They stay home, or occasionally, vote for the other Party.

Thankfully, there appears to be one Democrat in Iowa with the fortitude our leadership in Washington does not.
