Leftist Bloggers ask the IMPORTANT Questions: Is Ken Mehlman Gay?

Raw story:

GQ Magazine details the outing campaign of gay blogger Mike Rogers (also editor of RawStoryQ) in a 3,100 word spread in this month’s issue, now on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles, RAW STORY has learned.

The piece, which includes a first-ever denial that the chairman of the Republican National Committee Ken Mehlman is gay–a fact contested by many reporters and others close to the Mehlman himself–is sure to spark a new firestorm of debate over whether outing those who oppose gay civil rights is appropriate.

“Ken Mehlman is not gay,” Steve Schmidt, a senior official of the Bush campaign and a friend of Mehlman’s told Jake Tapper, an ABC News correspondent who wrote the piece for the magazine. Scmidt who refers to Rogers as a “bottom dweller.”

Mehlman has not responded to previous requests for comment on his sexuality from any publication.

RAW STORY previously reported that during the Republican National Convention in New York, Schmidt intimidated two New York newspapers from printing a story questioning Mehlman’s sexuality. Schmidt also allegedly called the sources that had spoken to Mike Rogers, who had been ready to go on the record about their experiences with the then-Bush-Cheney campaign manager. Mehlman was also outed by a progressive radio talk show host late last year.

AmericaBLOG’s John Aravosis, who is gay and publicly questioned whether Mehlman might be gay last year, said he was surprised a Bush campaign official would deny Mehlman was gay.

“If he’s now heterosexual, I’d like to know why he’s single at 38,” Aravosis told RAW STORY. “Because we’ve heard nothing about girlfriends, we’ve heard nothing about marriage, we’ve heard nothing about nothing–and he’s bashing [us] about gay marriage? Because he doesn’t seem like much of a defender of marriage himself.”

That's not the way Ann Coulter tells it!

I wonder if John Aravosis will publish photos of Ken Mehlman's C*CK? Cause, you know, there's nothing that settles the Social Security reform debate better than a nine-inch Republican MAN-SHAFT.

Rob at Say Anything in his best Jeff Goldstein voice says about the article:

After all, we can’t let these Republicans escape the hypocrisy of their private sexual lives. Your political leanings absolutely must hinge upon your choice in sexual partners.
Indeed. Do you think it's time to break out the Gannon-bell again??

1 I always did think I did a good Goldstein. Actually I didn't even realize I was sounding like him. I think I've just read (and laughed) at his posts so much its ingrained now.

Anyway, its so funny how the gay witch hunters on the left all hide behind Aravosis when they're doing some GOP gay bashing. Its as though they think the fact that Aravosis is gay some how makes the fact that they're persecuting their gay political opponents A-OK.

2 "–and he’s bashing [us] about gay marriage? Because he doesn’t seem like much of a defender of marriage himself."

Now that's logical. Is this critic saying that single people don't have the right to express views about marriage?

3 Ummmm, when I went to the RAW site, the blog adds on the right was selling the first season of "Doogie Howser, MD on DVD"

You can't make this stuff up.

If this is what the left is spending time on, more evidence of their irrelavance.

4 I've decided that since I blog anonymously that I can be anything I want to be.

From now I AM GAY.

Let the gay jokes begin!

5 Since it is your blog after all, does that mean you'll have a gay old time?

6 Is there even a question?

7 Ken Mehlman put the Log in "Log Cabin Republicans". I think history is repeating itself. The German Nazis were full of closet homos. That goose stepping was a dead give away.
Now gays have "deep penetrance" in the neoconservative movement. Everything has to be so orderly for them.
