A great overview

Like the great mind(s), over at BlogActive, I've become a big fan of Deb Price of the Detroit News. This week, Deb writes a great analysis of the elections and what it means for gays. In this overview, Deb doesn't forget about the gains we made outside of Congress, in state legislatures and Governors' mansions.

The whole article is great, but I'm partial to the part where Deb reminds us of the homophobes who lost.Pelosi signals fresh start on gay rights - The Detroit News Online:

Two of the most anti-gay Republicans -- Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who compared gay sex to 'man-on-dog' sex, and Rep. John Hostettler of Indiana, who tried to strip federal courts of authority over gay marriage -- got the voters' boot.

You can see her column linked every week from their news service, PageOneQ.
