Tolerance Only Goes So Far ...

There's courting the gay vote, and there's actually having to confront the more outrageous members of the gay community ... and the Dems didn't respond too well when confronted:
Dems reject Cher impersonator

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, United States (UPI) -- A New Jersey gay rights group thought a Cher impersonator, who happened to be a man, would liven up a Democratic Party meeting but met resistance instead.

The state Democrats gathered in Atlantic City, which Steve Goldstein, founder of Garden State Equality, a gay-rights organization, booked 'Cher' to appear in full Cher regalia and lip-synch a few of the singer`s greatest hits.

But before the impersonator could hit the stage, a state party official approached Goldstein and -- as witnesses told the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger -- said, "We can't have THAT walking in the hallway. What if the press sees that? What if they report on that in tomorrow's papers?" (source)

So what is it, Dems? Are you tolerant and inclusive, or are you just tolerant and inclusive impersonators?
