"When you back someone into a corner, they fight back twice as hard. The platform is ugly and harmful. We lost, and you could say the social conservatives in our party dropped the hammer harder because we were there."

-- Casey Pick, a Log Cabin Republican party to the GOP's platform drafting committee, vents about her frustration with the sharp, anti-gay rhetoric inserted into the Republican Party's platform by the Family Research Council - and other recognized hate groups - to NPR. Even though the gay lobbying arm of the GOP previously labeled its own party platform as "bad with a capital B," they'll still be punching their dance card for Romney/Ryan come Election Day.
