    This is called “the rats are leaving the sinking ship”

    Good report. I’m not from Oregon, but it looks like you did a good job of capturing the differences between the factions within the party, rather than just saying “Oregon Republicans did such and such.”

    I hope this portends increased factionalization in other states, because that’s going to be the sign that things are changing. I’ve been surprised so far at how slow Republicans have been to change, with only a handful willing to speak out unambiguously in favor of gay rights.

    I don’t think he meant it this way, but it sounds like, for Occhipinti, it is not enough for citizens to pay taxes to get equal rights, but they should also be able to die for their country outside the closet to really be considered worthy.

    I always take an accordion when I go hunting. I thought you had to.

    And of course it turned out to be completely false:

    Despite Timothy’s usually shilling for all things Republican, the party is as backwards, theocratic and inhuman as it has been for decades.

    Steve,

    I really don’t care whether you type the word “shilling” into every single commentary you make.

    But as far as what I wrote, it is completely accurate and factual. It is also nuanced and tells the story of a growing division in the party. Perhaps you don’t like that story. But that doesn’t make it “false”.

    You are welcome, as always, to state your opinions. You are not welcome to make false statements of fact.
