My friend and fellow blogger, Dan Blatt -- one of the founders of the Log Cabin Republican Club of Northern Virginia -- had his popular blog, GayPatriot, showcased in the Washington Times today.
Victor Morton's July 15 "Inside Blogotics" column includes one of Dan's posts about John McCain in a weekly wrap-up of the political blogosphere:
Fred Barnes last week advised Sen. John McCain to shore up the social-conservative base by making a bigger issue of matters related to homosexuality.Dan's full July 10 post on the topic can be found under the headline, "Fred Barnes' Bad Advice to John McCain."
On "Fox News Sunday," the Weekly Standard pundit said, "Barack Obama is for allowing gays in the military ... Gay marriage is another one. These are both issues that I think McCain is gonna have to use."
Conservative blogger Gay Patriot West replied that "the Barnes Option" would not prevent him from voting for the Arizona Republican but would overall be "counterproductive."
