DiFi gay bashing?

Under most circumstances I'd be thrilled to see Diane Feinstein taken to the woodshed by her own supporters. This is a case where she really doesn't deserve it.
In Dianne Feinstein's hometown of San Francisco, hard feelings apparently linger about the senator's remark that the push to make marriage legal for same-sex couples hurt Democrats in the November election.
The gay rights folks in San Francisco believe that her comments have damaged their cause and that might be true. But all she was really doing was making a comment about political strategy. Agree with Democrats' positon on gay rights or not, but they have pushed it to the point where it has hurt them.
