In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

Did I Do That?

While perusing wonkette.com today, I learned I might have played a part in an authentic, grassroots political scandal. Connect the dots and make up your own mind.

Gee -- I'm not used to planting the seeds of sabotage! Feels good, though.

UPDATE: Cute Married Rep Seeks Scandal


Oh, goodness. What a landslide of email we uncorked with that bit of business about a married congressman looking for some dick. If we had known that would happen, we wouldn't have started drinking at lunch. What's really sad is that we're afraid that all that speculation (we're looking at you, Boi from Troy) is for, uhm, naught. Except if you're really into astrology. Craigslist posting is gone and, what's more -- how do we put this? It is clearly, and perhaps obviously and intentionally, a put-on.

All this transpired just a few days after I posted these comments (as "gaymafioso") on blogActive.com in response to an article purporting to "out" Republic National Committee designate Ken Mehlman:

that colored fella asked: "Also, where else has Ken Mehlman lived outside of Washington? If he is stupid enough to darken the door of JR's, he has probably left a trail of bar hookups in other cities. I'd think Editors of those cities gay publications would be more than willing to help kick up a little dirt, for the cause!"

An easy way to investigate this is by posting something on craigslist.com. I'd start with Chicago. For some reason, a lot of D.C. types like to frequent the popular bathhouse there. Some are indeed stupid enough to leave behind their names and numbers.
