Not long ago a bunch of homophobic Republicans filibustered the Defense Authorization Bill because they don’t want to allow gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly in the US military.

And today the RNC sent me an email promoting their new GOP holiday schwag including a 5 inch long, sock-stuffing elephant named “Twinkle”…

Meet “Twinkle,” the newest member of our adorable line of collectable RNC plush elephants! “Twinkle” is ready for merriment and makes a perfect stocking stuffer for all your little Republicans who have been so good this year… Actual size 5″

Enough said.
