Bush advisors recommend ENDA veto

After a wingnut report that the White House had secretly helped draft parts of ENDA-lite (expanding religious exemptions) got pro-bigotry forces up in arms, the Bushies confirmed what pretty much everyone knew, Bush plans to veto ENDA regardless of whether it contains protections for gender identity.

So can we all agree that this year's vote is symbolic and drop the rhetoric by some pundits that insisting on an ENDA with gender identity/gender expression protections will somehow "hold hostage" LGB rights.

That said, even though tomorrow's vote is symbolic, it's still important -- laying the groundwork for a future votes when we have a president who won't vote it. So if you haven't done so, visit, call, email or fax your Congressional representative today.
