Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Prediction: The Senator Will Be Re-elected in a Landslide

At BlogActive, there's an attempt at blackmail:

Tomorrow you will decide if your political position is worth more than doing what is right for others like you. For others like you, Mr. Senator, who engage in oral sex with other men. (Although, Mr. Senator, most of us don't do in the bathrooms of Union Station!) Your fake marriage, by the way, will NOT protect you from the truth being told on this blog.

How does this blog decide who to report on? It's simple. We report on hypocrites. In this case, hypocrites who vote against the gay and lesbian community while engaging in gay sex themselves*.

When you cast that vote, Mr. Senator, represent your own...it's the least you could do.

I predict the Senator in question will be re-elected in a landslide. He will have proved that he won't buckle under pressure and that he will stick to inconvenient principles. I suspect the conservative base is more opposed to liberals than to minor vices. If Rush Limbaugh can retain his audience, this as-yet unnamed Senator can retain his voters.

Besides, he might pick up a few votes in the gay community.

Actually, I'm looking forward to a political campaign in which one side quotes from The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson (previously covered here).
