Rob Portman says he's changed his mind on gay rights now that he has found out that his son is gay. He is greeted with
hoots of derision unsympathetic responses from Matt Yglesias, Paul Krugman, Noah Berlatsky and GOK who else, all chorusing that it's pretty rich for a hardliner like Portman to get religion (heh!) on an issue like this only if as and when it creeps into his own DNA. It would be churlish and self-defeating for the folks here at Underbelly to point out that we made the same--oh, crap, Buce, go for it.
