    Sure, I know people with racially and sexually prejudiced beliefs.  I'm 52 and I grew up in Louisiana for God's sake.  But the fact that I know those people doesn't mean I give them a platform or prominence when I know that will be offensive to others.  If that makes me an "alienator," then I'll proudly plead guilty.

    As far as Obama is concerned, let's face it, he wouldn't invite someone who'd given a fiery racist or antisemitic speech to speak at his inauguration.  Somehow, though, he feels comfortable doing this with homophobes.  As much as I'd like to think this is a mistake, since it's the second time in a row, it's clearly a deliberate choice.
