Another Republican comes out of the closet - surprise surprise.
Ken Mehlman, a man who formerLY held the highest (non-elected) office within the Republican party has come out as gay.
For at least four or five years of his involvement with George W. Bush and the Republican party, he was the mouthpiece for a group of rich, bigoted, white men and had to demonize and criticize his own community in order to get his boss re-elected.
I cannot imagine the self-hatred this man must have internalized - just to make a living!
To him I say congratulations for finding peace and honesty, but also shame on you for not standing up for yourself and for allowing Karl Rove and other puppet masters to pull your strings.
Interestingly enough, Bill Mahr outed him on CNN's Larry King Live back in 2006. See below:
