Anti-gay activist Ryan Sorba angles for CNN special
At this year's Conservative Political Action Conference, California activist Ryan Sorba got a taste of infamy when he used his two minutes on stage to bash the event's organizers for allowing the gay Republican group GOProud to co-sponsor it.
But Sorba dealt with the aftermath well. He made the rounds at March's Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight, Nev., where he met reporters for CNN. The result, according to his Facebook page:
CNN won't comment directly on this, but I'm informed that Sorba is one of several conservatives that producers have spoken to as they've covered the conservative movement. The odds of him getting his own documentary might be oversold.
UPDATE: I emailed Sorba, and he responded:
Let Tammy Bruce and/or Andrew Sullivan know that I am going to publicly challenge both to a debate soon! You don't think they would be afraid to debate do you? Lol.
