"Loving the Sin but Hating the Sinner"

Both Bryan and Michelle have put up excellent posts on Marine Corporal Matt Sanchez (winner of CPAC's Jeane Kirkpatrick Award) and his treatment by the left and the right, respectively, since his past has become public. (I wonder what Ann Coulter has to say about Corporal Sanchez?)

From the comments on prior posts, it appears that quite a few of you are under the bizarre impression that the best way to win elections is to alienate as many voters as possible in some sort of valiant, principled stance against what you consider to be "political correctness." Fortunately for the GOP, few of you are in positions to put your novel political strategies into practice. I'm encouraged by the long list of prominent conservatives, including bloggers, who've gone on record denouncing Ann Coulter for her unacceptable, self-serving remarks at CPAC. A partial list is below the fold.
