I didn't get around to doing this post earlier in the week...I guess I'm not going to go back and link to everything, but I will link to yesterday's post on the old, old, Senate.
Today at Plum Line I talked about Richard Mourdock's idea of bipartisanship, and said that it matters precisely because he doesn't appear to be a flake.
And over at Post Partisan, I did a quick reaction to Barack Obama's new position on marriage. Short version: historic, but won't matter in 2012.
But that does raise a question. Regardless of what happens in 2012, what will the future of gay and lesbian political attachment look like? Will the LGBT community wind up like African Americans, Jews, and Mormons? Each of those groups, it seems to me, has remained politically identified through their ethnicity (in the first and perhaps second case) or their religion (in the third and perhaps second case), and therefore has stayed bound to one party. Or will they be like, I don't know, the Irish -- moving away from their current political identity to other identities, and therefore identifying with parties for other reasons?
