Et tu, Donna?

Well, what a surprise, maverick City Councilwoman Donna Frye provided the NO vote to prevent the City of San Diego from joining an amicus brief to the California Supreme Court in support of marriage equality. Democrats Toni Atkins, Scott Peters and Ben Hueso, were joined by independent-Republican Jim Madaffer in voting for the resolution. Frye made some comments about process to explain her vote. But, true blue progressive democrats have to wonder: whose side is she on anyway? This was not a shock to many activists who saw a similar betrayal a few months ago when Frye reversed her position on the Wal-Mart ban and voted to sustain a mayoral veto at the 11th hour. Is Frye plotting a run for Mayor? And if so, who does she plan to attract to her camp with these votes?

On another note, who would think that the progressive block on the City Council – on any vote - would be Atkins, Hueso, Madaffer and Peters?

It must be the heat wave!

I wonder what the Donna apologists are going to say now? I could forgive for one vote, but now two votes! And I voted for her 3 times for mayor.

HA HA HA!! Even Donna knows it's a loser to support special rights to the gays. Even she understands that this debasement of the sacred act of marriage is against the laws of nature. But you know the Liberal Left is going to demonize her for taking the right stance. Maybe this is why no one listens to KLSD anymore either. People are just tired of Liberal whining, anti-Americanism and debasing our institutions! No more defeatism!!!

Oh and Jimbo... Hopefully a real Republican will bring back true values to District 7 and no more of your this RINOism you've been expressing lately!

It seems like the Dems need to start working better together or...

First the extremists came for the labor community and I wasn't, then the extremists came for the LGBT community and I wasn't, then the extremists came for the Latino community and I wasn't, then the extremists came for the African American community and I wasn't, then the extremists came for the Asian American community and I wasn't, then they came for the rest of the Dem community and I was all alone.

Lets stop the extremists from doing this to the next community and stand together.

Equality isn't a special right hannitized. It's actually the exact opposite. And as to it being a "loser" issue, I think that polling would disagree with your assessment with 43% of Californians approving of gay marraige in early 2006 and polling in 2007 demonstrating that generational replacement is increasing support.
