"In the next few days, the Democratic controlled House of Representatives will do exactly what the Republican controlled House in the 108th Congress did – pass hate crimes legislation. In their cynical never-ending quest to lower expectations, the gay left will undoubtedly hail the passage of hate crimes legislation as ‘historic.' While the passage of hate crimes may be laudable, its passage, and indeed even its enactment into law, is not historic.
"The truth is that Democrats have spent no political capital on moving on important election year promises such as the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the partial repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. Instead of making excuses for the lack of action by Democrats in Washington, the leaders of the gay left should be demanding that Democrats commit to living up to the promises they made."
