"It's like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You're still complicit. You're still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don't get to walk away clean, because you say you "disagree" with your candidate on these issues."

-- Playwright Doug Wright in a letter he wrote to a friend who said on Facebook that he'd be voting for Romney. After the posting went viral, Playbill picked it up and published the whole thing.
