The Republic of T.

Black. Gay. Father. Vegetarian. Buddhist. Liberal.

If Everybody Else Google Bombed the Elections…?

Well, apparently all the cool kids are doing it. So I might as well jump in too. Besides, it makes sense.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not imagining that everything will be hunky dory if the Dems take back the House and/or Senate. I’m not optimistic enough to think that a Democratic House would necessarily be a boon to gay issues. Mainly because Dems are already making a beeline for the middle of the road. That’s the strategy that’s been telegraphed for a while now, and I don’t expect any different if/when they take back either the House or Senate.

Like I’ve said before, if you run to the right to get elected, your going to have to stay to the right if you want to hold on to power. (And who, in Washington, doesn’t?) Same goes for the middle, except that you can’t move too far to the left or right if you want to stay in power. Given that, I don’t expect any great strides on gay issues if the Dems take back either house of Congress, at least nothing proactive. But at least they may be able stop some of the egregiously bad stuff, especially if they take control of the House since that’s where the most batshit crazy stuff comes from. At least if you ask me.

So, if being left alone is the best we can hope for in this political season, then Google-bombs away.
