DNC Debated Peter Pace Response

Democratic National Committee’s press man and Chief of Staff debated how to respond to Peter Pace’s “immoral” comments about homosexuality: “In the protracted e-mail exchange obtained by the Blade, [Damien] LaVera and [Leah] Daughtry advocate for sending a statement only to reporters working for gay press and keeping any mention of it off the DNC web site. They also oppose sending the statement to mainstream news wires. That way, the DNC can have it both ways – placating the gays with a toothless statement while ensuring that any faintly pro-gay statements don’t gain traction or visibility in mainstream media.” Jeez, can’t any of our political parties just take a fucking stand for equality, justice and civility?!
