Their chief argument seems to be that Democrats promise all sorts of things to gay people, and then deliver little. It isn't an entirely wrong argument, but it is mostly wrong. Democrats may deliver some weak tea when we're asking for strong coffee (there you go, Mark!), but at least they are serving something. The Republican Party often tries to take whatever we're asking for away, sometimes after we've already gotten it. Very often, they are successful.

A Palin loving, tea bagging, Obama's a commie, Nancy Pelosi is a succubus, Harry Reid is the devil, Karl Rove worshipping, Glenn Beck watching, true believer.
Small wonder then that their message doesn't seem to be going very well. For instance, they've had a Facebook page since October of last year, and presently they are "liked" by 327 people. And I'm one of them!
