    They show up, they vote, they vote blue.

    In overwhelming numbers.

    Those are hundreds of thousand of votes the GOP does not have.  Whether they want to transform their platform into something worth our vote is their call.  

    Til then, though, I'm voting as blue as it gets.

    When the President of the United States says, out loud, on tv, that he and the First Lady have no problem at all with same-sex marriage, for instance, it changes the landscape inside and outside the head of a 15-year old in Topeke, a 17-year old in Hartford, and a 12-year old in Nashville.  

    That's a new landscape.  The inside-the-head dialogue will reject the GOP's homophobia.  And if that young man or woman registers to vote, the GOP will continue to lose support.

    And IMO they deserve to.
