Ironic Statement of the Day

as promoted (also ironically) over on Pam's House Blend:
At the meeting, LGBT finance staff and key fundraisers did sit at the Caucus table, as before, but what is different is that lately we seem to be treated solely as an ATM for the party, with our civil rights seeming an afterthought or burden.

Let's see....since the Clinton campaign in 1992 was the first to actively court gays for dollars, but then treat what gay leftists and Democrats argued were "civil rights" as an afterthought or burden, it's only taken, oh, fifteen years or so to realize the fact.

At this rate, we can expect that they might actually consider doing something about it just in time for the midterm elections -- in 2022.

But in the meantime, I offer Donald Hitchcock and his fellow Dems a bit of sage advice; if you don't want to be treated like an ATM, stop spitting out money on command.
