Life In The Closet-- Miss McConnell Is Very Sick And Very Dangerous Person


I'm lucky I figured out I was gay at a relatively early age-- and I'm lucky to have had a loving, accepting, supportive family. Otherwise I could have wound up like Miss McConnell-- a slimy closet queen cowering in the darkness, creeping around in fear and self-loathing, living a life in denial and a life premised on deception. Closet queens are mentally ill-- all of them... and severely so. It's not a matter of how painful it is to have to crawl around in public toilets looking for "love" (like so many "conservatives" do); it's a matter of how a life in the closet rots the mind and turns the sick person into a demon. Normal people don't become child molesters; closeted conservatives with twisted minds do. Or they marry some harridan like Michele Bachmann and consign themselves to hell on earth as a self-inflicted punishment. When far right-wing homophobic state Senator Roy Ashburn (R-CA) was caught, drunk, with a young male prostitute, he had an epiphany. I respect him for it. He now talks about how a tawdry and fearful existence in the closet ruined his life (watch the video here) and forced him into an existence predicated on hypocrisy and deceit. Ashburn, when asked if he's been a hypocrite, said, flatly, YES! "I was in hiding." Watch that video, he talks about how he was terrified and paralyzed. It's what every Republican says when they eventually get outed, although he's more honest and forthright a lot faster than most.

Former GOP Congressman (and the vitriolic homophobic founder of the American Conservative Union and Young Americans For Freedom) Bob Bauman was also living a double life in a frightening closet of his own making and came to personal and political ruin when he was also caught with an underage boy. His book The Gentleman From Maryland: The Conscience Of A Gay Conservative also makes it crystal clear that living in the closet is a life sentence unworthy of any human being regardless of political persuasion. But we're not here today to talk about Roy Ashburn or Bob Bauman, nor about the current crop of slimy, mentally distrurbed closet cases like Aaron Schock (R-IL), Trent Franks (R-AZ), David Dreier (R-CA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) or even about Patrick McHenry. We're here to talk about the Republican Party's severely psychologically handicapped Senate Minority Leader, Mitch "Miss" McConnell (R-KY).

Historically, gays were kept out of jobs where they could give away secrets because of blackmail. Obviously, an openly gay person who isn't in the closet, can't be blackmailed any sooner than a straight person. Miss McConnell, however, has created an entire life for himself in the closet and really is unfit for any kind of a job that requires even a modicum of trust. Every calculation he makes, everything he does is centered around not being exposed and not seeing his carefully constructed fairy castle in the sky come tumbling back down to earth. Yesterday Greg Sargent covered the newest McConnell scandal-- no not about him fondling a private's privates again... this one is about undermining the United States of America. Sargent has just finished reading a review copy of Michael Grunwald's new book, The New New Deal and he's writing about the GOP's decision to deny Obama all cooperation for the explicit purpose of rendering his presidency a failure-- making it easier for them to mount a political comeback after their disastrous 2008 losses. Forget partisan bickering; this is nothing short of treason to the American people, something you could expect from a deranged and mentally unbalanced freak-- like a McConnell kind of closet case. Straight from the book:
Biden says that during the transition, he was warned not to expect any cooperation on many votes. “I spoke to seven different Republican Senators, who said, `Joe, I’m not going to be able to help you on anything,’ he recalls. His informants said McConnell had demanded unified resistance. “The way it was characterized to me was: `For the next two years, we can’t let you succeed in anything. That’s our ticket to coming back,’” Biden says.

The vice president says he hasn’t even told Obama who his sources were, but Bob Bennett of Utah and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania both confirmed they had conversations with Biden along these lines.

Former Ohio Republican Senator George Voinovich also goes on record telling Grunwald that Republican marching orders were to oppose everything the Obama administration proposed. “If he was for it, we had to be against it,” Voinovich tells Grunwald. And at another point, characterizing a strategy session Republicans and McConnell had held in early January of 2009, Voinovich said: “He wanted everyone to hold the fort. All he cared about was making sure Obama could never have a clean victory.” This is the kind of garbage Kentucky voters send to the U.S. Senate. Everyone who has ever cast a ballot for him should be ashamed.

Or maybe vice versa, J? (Whatever the female-dressing-as-male equivalent of "drag" would be.)

So there was a secret meeting? In the words of the premier American monster: "So what?"

Shortly after the meeting the plan hatched therein was publicly, proudly and frequently broadcast nationwide.

The problem is NOT that the political scum of the earth had this plan but that Obama, with full knowledge of it, still embraced these miserable shits with his pathological bipartisanship.

The result was the 2010 midterms which had thus became a referendum on "what to you prefer - real political scum or enablers of political scum?" ... and the never fail preference for true scum not mere pretenders.

You know, the truth is that Mitch McConnell is one person. There are 50 (more or less) Republican Senators at any given time in history.

Why didn't these pious, ex post facto, remorseful Republicans just tell McConnell it was behavior unworthy of members of the United States Senate. That The People had elected Obama and THAT made him worthy of a Senate who treated him with decency and civility, at the very least.

Of course, none of them did or would have thought of doing such a thing.

In the GOP, decency just doesn't seem to be on the list of their "Family Values", at least, not until espousing such would help their latest re-election campaign.
