RNC Picks Next Bigoted Leader Today!

Some 168 delegates get to choose the next chairperson of the Republican National Commitee today. You might think that with Michael Steele trailing in support (just 24 votes are a definite lock for him going into the vote), a regime change might usher in a new era of conservative politics. Hah! Reince Priebus, the current chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party (and former Steele adviser), is in the lead with 44 votes, according to Politico‘s count. But no matter who wins, remember all of these folks want to keep queers in their place as second-class citizens. Luckily it’s really the chairman’s job to raise cash, and not always dictate policy and strategy; that honor goes to operators working behind the scenes. Who also hate you.
