    There are two ways to "drop all this anti-gay stuff".

    One is to pretend it isn't so, while keeping up the Dog Whistles, which is the stock Republican thought on all of the issues that they are losing on. This is a losing strategy, because they always get outed. [sic] As is continuing to admit, even flaunt [sic] their bigotry.

    The other is to stop being, or pretending to be, homophobic, and come out [sic] for LGBT rights. I'm all for that. We are seeing more and more of it.

    The public tipped on LGBT rights a few years ago. Politics is designed not to respond to shifts in public opinion immediately, but elections have consequences, some sooner and some later.

    The war is lost, but not conceded. Most will surrender at some point. Some will fight to the bitter end, and then claim (as in Germany after WW I) that they were sold out and stabbed in the back, and start looking for scapegoats and planning their next putsch. Let a hundred conspiracy theories bloom.

    America—We built that!
