Just to show how bad things have gotten at firedoglake, Pam Spaulding had a panic attack over gays and lesbians having a kiss in at Chick-fil-A today. After another instance of firedoglake historical revisionism analogous to Southern Dragon's claim that Marx abandoned his activism and limited himself to the understanding of a capitalist economy after 1850, wherein Spaulding states that the kiss in is incompatible with the past activism of ACT-UP, she is joined by numerous others complaining about the adverse consequences of public displays of gay and lesbian affection. It was left to slobeck to correct the record and bring some rationality to the discussion. Just imagine if Spaulding went to an Occupy event in NYC or Oakland, she'd probably faint and require help from the street medics.
