Sorry to be off-topic, but I am having a late-breaking one-woman political campaign that I hope you will join.

I hope that everyone who is troubled by this will contact the AFSCME. I sent them the following message:

To whom it may concern,

I am horrified at the advertisement the AFSCME is running against Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, and I urge you to remove them and to apologize for them. While there is disagreement among Democrats about the extent to which we should campaign for homosexuals' equality, I hope there is no disagreement that our tactics should not sink to those of our opponents. Unfortunately, in referencing McConnell's military record and asking that he be "straight" with voters, the AFSCME has found a low ground to share with Republicans, and it makes me ashamed to have made common cause with the AFSCME.

Please, please reconsider such advertisements, and please remember that the Democratic coalition cannot be strengthened by using sexual orientation as a fear factor in politics.

I'm an Audrey. Didn't even know that was an option. I don't know if I agree; Audrey comes off as a rather delicate, spacey flower child. I guess there are worse things.
