RoadMichelangelo Signorile on Mitt Romney's pandering: "He's done a stunning public turnaround on LGBT issues – as with many other issues – from claiming he was better than Ted Kennedy on gays and supporting partner rights back in the 90s (when he unsuccessfully challenged Kennedy in a Senate race) to signing a pledge written by the National Organization for Marriage this year 'to appoint federal judges who don't see a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.' But no matter how much Romney joins in the bullying of gays, he continues to get bullied himself by the same gang of thugs for being a Mormon."
