    Welcome to what happens when a comment is taken out of context.

    The Democrats have been saying that the Republicans are anti-gay for a long time. The article addresses the proposition that the Democrats are just looking for something new to say that the Republicans are against.

    That is where the comment from Senator Smith comes in. If the comment were expanded I think it would read more like; “Illegal immigrants are just something new for the Democrats to claim that the Republicans are against, they are the successor to the Republican anti-gay movement.”

    Senator Smith’s lack of words have made this quote more than it really is. The quote is the Senator’s observation, and not his position.
