ABC's The Note highlights this flyer which was posted by the Massachusetts Democratic Party on RomneyFacts.com.

"As that shakes out, ABC has obtained one flier Romney doesn't want you to see. It's from 2002, with Romney was running for governor with Kerry Healey as his running mate. 'Mitt and Kerry Wish You a Great Pride Weekend! All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual preference.' (It's even pink.)"

It was said to have been handed out during the 2002 gay pride parade.

Here's Mitt blasting the Iowa Judge who struck down the state's ban on gay marriage, Powerline downplays Romney's past "secret gay history" and if you listen carefully, you'll hear the sound of Hugh Hewitt's head exploding:

Romney: “The real impact of gay marriage is not something you’re going to recognize in a year or two. The impact is over generations. I believe each child in America has the right to have a mother and a father.”
