IMMORAL?….This from Paul Waldman is a good question. The press has given lots of attention to Democratic responses to Gen. Peter Pace’s statement that homosexuality is “immoral,” but why not ask the Republican candidates too?

In comments to Paul’s post, it appears that several of the GOP candidates have been asked, but with the exception of Sam Brownback, who thinks Pace was spot on, the rest of them have all dodged the question in one way or another. Maybe the national press should try again?

UPDATE: Here’s Mike Huckabee tap dancing around the question on Bill Maher’s show last week. (It comes at about 5:30.)
