Camenker Defenders Demand Apology

Americans for Truth, an organization created last fall "devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda," is demanding an apology from Mitt Romney for his campaign's character assault on "American hero" Brian Camenker.

Others on the right, such as the Michigan Cooler blog, are also upset about Romney's attack on Camenker -- and some are using it as an opportunity to launch ugly attacks at Mitt. Townhall blogger Matt Lewis quotes an unnamed source "close to one of Romney's potential rivals" calling the attack on Camenker "the dumbest stunt by a tier-one presidential candidate since George Romney claimed he had been brainwashed by the generals and diplomats." Yowzah!

By offending the homophobic fringe, Romney potentially allows room for another social conservative to gain traction; but at the same time, he potentially makes himself more palatable to more mainstream Republicans who don't want their candidate associating with the raving right. So, is it a net plus or minus for the Mittster?
