Ken Mehlman finally came out of the closet saying he will now work on gay rights including marriage rights.  He and Rove were responsible for bashing gays in the 2004 election and getting marriage bans on 11 state ballots to get evangelical voters out to vote.  It was well known around Washington that he was gay.  Bill Maher made mention of it on Larry King Live.  Larry acted like he never heard that before and Maher's statement was edited out of the rebroadcasts.  

I find it so unforgiving to use a group of people for political purposes.  Ken has a lot of work to do to ever earn my respect.

Below is video of an ABC NEWS story about this and includes Mehlman's appearance with Tim Russert on MEET THE PRESS:

My good friend Tony Perkins of the Godly Family Research Council emailed me about this shocking news only this morning:

The Update remains on Summer break and will return next week,  but I wanted to respond to inquires and concerns that have been expressed about the news that former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman has now chosen to identify himself as homosexual.

First, I am saddened by this announcement. I'm saddened because I know Ken and care about him as a person. Homosexuality not only has negative implications for society, it also has profound, well-documented negative physical and mental health consequences for those who engage in homosexual conduct as well.

This unfortunate confirmation helps explain the scandalous failure of many in the Republican establishment to vigorously uphold the values and policy positions expressed in the party's platform in 2004 and 2008, particularly the need to protect the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman nationwide. While grassroots activists succeeded in passing marriage amendments in dozens of states across the country, they received little support and even outright resistance from Party officials at the national level, which contributed to the GOP's electoral failures in 2006 and 2008. Now we know one of the major reasons why.

With this announcement about his homosexuality, Ken also announced that he would join those who have mounted the assault on marriage through the activist courts. Not only does this run counter to the historical principles of the Republican Party, it stands in direct opposition to the Party's platform which is clear on the importance of marriage and family. The Party's unequivocal stand on life, marriage, and family is why many social conservatives have made the GOP their political home.

It is important for the conservative movement that the Republican Party remains committed to its longtime stance on core social issues. The Party and the movement will suffer if the GOP adopts a foolish strategy of seeking votes by pandering to the two-percent of the population who are homosexual or bisexual--and thereby alienating the majority of conservative voters.


Glory! Makes a body want to get the rattlesnakes out right now and start invoking he Holy Name, doesn't it?

I wonder if Kenny is trying to head off a Ted Haggard type revelation?

I agree.  I always figure the numbers are similar to teh joos in the US, like 4-5%.  And you know how teh joos control the government, as do teh gays.

Ken could never earn my respect, because he lacks any true character. Just because he's gay, does not change the fact, that he sold out the GLBT community. How he could sell his soul, to Karl Rove no less, is beyond me. I don't want him on my side.
Life is what happens, when you are busy making other plans.

Though you may be only one person in the entire world, to one person, you may be the entire world.

I wish to become half the man, that my dog thinks I am.

Remember me with simple acts of kindness and I will live forever.

Yeah, it's like a black person suddenly coming clean about his past support for Jim Crow laws in 1965.

Thanks Matty, I needed the laugh ;D ;D

   On topic though, it will be very interesting to see the results of this. That Perkins douchebag is pretty amazing, though. He's probably home right now with one of two thoughts going through his empty little head, the first being something like this: "Holy Shit! I actually shook hands and was friends with this man! Am I gonna turn queer now!? What am I gonna do if i turn queer!?"
   The second possibility involves 'ol Tony P. thinking of Mehlman while furtively whacking off in the bathroom after his wife has gone to bed.


    Guess which choice my money's on...
