Another Conservative Changes his Mind

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Steve Schmidt, a key architect of John McCain's presidential campaign, is making his first public return to Washington a bold one.

Schmidt will use a speech Friday to Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group, to urge conservative Republicans to drop their opposition to same-sex marriage, CNN has learned.

"There is a sound conservative argument to be made for same-sex marriage," Schmidt will say, according to speech excerpts obtained by CNN.

"I believe conservatives, more than liberals, insist that rights come with responsibilities. No other exercise of one's liberty comes with greater responsibilities than marriage."

It seems like every day now, another conservative switches sides.

I guess they could be considered 'bi'??

As long as they are on our side, that's good by me.

They may well still be bigots, but it almost seems like thay are starting to get that, at the very least, bigotry isn't winning them votes any more.

Bigotry is out of fashion. (Not that I know anything about fashion)

We will suck the opposition dry and conquer it.
