Jerry Orbach would not be pleased.

Today, right here our own backyard, Republican Presidential candidate (and now eventual loser) Fred Thompson said he is "personally opposed to civil unions and domestic partnerships." Uh oh. The gays are gonna get so steamed!

The former actor and rabid fan of onyx jewelry went on to say "I do not think that they're a good idea," in regards to civil unions. (We're with you on that one, Freddy. But that's only because we prefer same-sex marriage over separate-but-equal civil unions. But that's neither here nor there.)

He's visiting the Bay Area, hitting three fundraisers today in Los Gatos, Carmichael, and San Francisco. Be sure to say hola if you see him around.
