Today's Bad Deed

It seems to me that the Angry Progressive Left concept that anyone who disagrees with them is evil strikes entirely the wrong note when applied to the Boy Scouts:

A state senator wants the Boy Scouts kept out of the governor's mansion because of what he calls the anti-gay positions of the national scouting organization. State Senator Thomas Duane of Manhattan was invited by the Twin Rivers Council of the Boy Scouts to join them at the Albany mansion. The group is planning a reception Thursday on character-building programs.

If the session is about building character, I have to wonder why Mr. Duane got invited to begin with.

I still remember watching a Democratic National Committee event during the 2000 election cycle (either for a primary or part of the convention) where a Boy Scout color guard presented the colors for the opening. The boys were actually booed.
