Ken Mehlman Just Realized He's Gay
Ken Mehlman, Dubya's 2004 campaign manager and a former Chairman of the RNC, has finally been telling people he's gay, something he says he's come to realize over time.
Funny, Ken, we realized it years ago when we were screaming, "You're gay!" and you were vehemently evading and denying it.
You know, back when you were enforcing all kinds of gross, anti-gay smearing and oppression on behalf of the Bush administration?
Can you folks believe this duplicitous bullshit?
Ken is just the latest in the Sean Hayes/Ricky Martin wave of "better late than never" gays.
And at least he's been quietly fighting for same-sex marital rights, trying to make up for all the years of closety backstabbing and self-loathing subterfuge.
Yep, Ken is really on our team these days -- and I'll be glad to help him along in that role.
After all, I knew he was gay before he did.
