Hold on a second. Baldwin is a lesbian? I thought she was just a bad dancer who has difficulty extricating herself from embarrassing situations. What does being a lesbian have to do with being senator? It's like next you're going to tell me Mark Pocan has a religious orientation that needs to be factored into whether or not he'll make a good congressman.

There's a difference between biology and belief.

You're telling us, what, that Mark Pocan is part Cherokee?

I'm not even going to pretend I understand what I assume is an attempt at humor.

You specifically referred to "religious orientation" as if it was equivalent to "being lesbian." That's dumb on so many levels, I'm gonna follow the advice of my fellow forons and just start ignoring you.

I'd like to know that, too. For an answer to this question I guess you'd have to look to Tommy Thompson's political director, who raised it with his insinuation.
