Bad News For Another Hypocritical Republican Closet Queen: Mitch McConnell Outed (Again)


If you follow DWT you are probably aware that we do not support nominal Democrat Bruce Lunsford for the Kentucky Senate seat. That certainly doesn't mean we support the current occupant of the seat, Miss McConnell, either. We want them both to lose. But a group in Kentucky may have seen Blue America's campaign against David Dreier, which has sent mailers to the most conservative pro-Dreier parts of CA-26, mailers that explain to his constituents that the congressman they support and think they know, is someone else entirely. In fact, the gay-bashing David Dreier is himself a closeted homosexual.

And so is Mitch McConnell. It's the worst-kept secret in Washington and many people in Louisville and Lexington know how queer their senator is. But in rural counties around Paducah, Bowling Green, Covington, Pikeville, Somerset... not a clue. Well, not 'til today. As many as 150,000 of the above fliers are being placed on windshields in the most Republican precincts in Kentucky.

They are aimed at McConnell's own hysterically homophobic base, the same kind of people who turned on Republicans in FL-16 when they found out that Mark Foley was another of the GOP closet queens. These aren't the kind of folks that usually care that much about hypocrisy. These are the hard-core haters who just don't like anyone who has been painted as "different."

There are many reasons to deny McConnell another 6 years of obstructionism in the Senate. The fact that he's gay should be no big deal, especially not to himself or to enlightened voters. The flyer isn't aimed at enlightened voters.

Dasm!! Talk about fighting fire with fire!! I know a lot of Democrats are afraid of going hard after Republicans, but I'm not. I like this. It's about time Republicans got a taste of their own medicine.

How have the rumors about Lindsay Graham been handled?

I am SO OVER 'protecting' the closeted Republicans or holding the hands of heterosexuals who are still confused and afraid of things like sexual orientation or gender identity.
