Choosing our logo is another important milestone in planning the 2008 Republican National Convention. This design highlights the spirit of the Republican Party and it will adorn everything from the Xcel Energy Center to t-shirts and other souvenirs.
--Convention President and Chief Executive Officer Maria Cino
By the time our convention is complete, this emblem -- much like our Republican nominee and future President of the United States -- will have been seen by millions around the world.
--RNC Co-Chairman and Convention Chairman Jo Ann Davidson
Homosexual. Gay. Lesbian. You think these are names that tell you who someone sleeps with; they don't tell you that. No. Like all labels they tell you one thing and one thing only: where does an individual so identified fit in the food chain, in the pecking order? Not ideology, or sexual taste, but something much simpler: clout. Not who I fuck or who fucks me, but who will pick up the phone when I call, who owes me favors. This is what a label refers to. Now to someone who does not understand this, homosexual is what I am because I have sex with men. But really this is wrong. Homosexuals are not men who sleep with other men. Homosexuals are men who in fifteen years of trying cannot pass a pissant anti-discrimination bill through City Council. Homosexuals are men who know nobody and who nobody knows. Who have zero clout. Does this sound like me, Henry?
