Newsflash from the Department of "Duh..."

I know this news will shock you -- if you've been living on Neptune for the last decade:
Ken Mehlman, President Bush's campaign manager in 2004 and a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, has told family and associates that he is gay.

Mehlman arrived at this conclusion about his identity fairly recently, he said in an interview. He agreed to answer a reporter's questions, he said, because, now in private life, he wants to become an advocate for gay marriage and anticipated that questions would arise about his participation in a late-September fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group that supported the legal challenge to California's ballot initiative against gay marriage, Proposition 8.

"It's taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life," said Mehlman, now an executive vice-president with the New York City-based private equity firm, KKR. "Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I've told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they've been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that's made me a happier and better person. It's something I wish I had done years ago."

Privately, in off-the-record conversations with this reporter over the years, Mehlman voiced support for civil unions and told of how, in private discussions with senior Republican officials, he beat back efforts to attack same-sex marriage. He insisted, too, that President Bush "was no homophobe." He often wondered why gay voters never formed common cause with Republican opponents of Islamic jihad, which he called "the greatest anti-gay force in the world right now."

Even after working for George W. Bush, Ken Mehlman has still never heard of John Hagee, Louie Gohmert, Sarah Palin's pastor, and the rest of the closet cases in this country who seem to think that they should decide whom others get to love.

Ken Mehlman, go fuck yourself.

Hello Jill,

Having Ken Mehlman fuck himself is not very satisfactory. Putting him in our harshest prisons and having voluntary (ha ha) sex is much more appropriate especially when Bubba is available (using a large probe orbiting Uranus).
