We have only ten more days before the CNN/YouTube Republican Presidential Debate. Initially most of the 12 angry white men who make up the GOP's slate tried to weasel their way out of the debate by claiming scheduling conflicts and decrying the lack of dignity in answering questions from riffraff like me and you. But after heaps of ridicule from conservative and progressive bloggers and some journalists, they have seen the light.

Here are a few of the LGBT related video questions submitted by YouTube viewers:

OMG The gays in the military one is perfect. Big lead up with surprise and then whammo - the perfectly phrased question. Best question by leaps and bounds; I really hope it makes the cut.

Whatever happened to Alan Keyes? I was so excited for his run, but no one will listen to him! He's still pretty mad about the Value Voters' Summit excluding him, according to his site....

First FRC, now YouTube!

You are aware that CNN will never put a question pertinent to LGBTs in the Republican debate, a debate which narrowly came into existence, right?

I hope I am proven wrong, but at this time I'm not crossing my fingers.

I have no idea what happened to Alan Keyes. I'm guessing that he is off hating his hedonistic lesbian daughter.

I thought the question about the river crossings was excellent, BUT, as a former military man, the military question is by far the most hard-hitting.

Go for the jugular!
