The Most Feared Man in Washingston??

Try the most disgusting man in Washington. At least to me.

"For Gay Blogger, Craig's Resignation Is Just the Latest on His List."

The Washington Post is reporting on Mike Rogers of BlogActive, who goal in life is to out gay Republicans.

"For three years now, he's been a feared one-man machine, "outing," he says, nearly three dozen senior political and congressional staffers, White House aides and, most damagingly, Congress members on his blog."

I don't have a problem with behavior, such as exhibited by Sen. Craig, becoming public knowledge (although Rogers did "out" Craig a while back, it didn't stick. The bathroom episode was given to Roll Call by a anonymous tip, Rogers maybe?) There have been rumors for years about Hillary's sexuality. I wonder if Rogers has looked into that? I doubt it.

As you can see here with Hillary on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Hillary, the one who is leading for the Democratic nomination, is AGAINST gay marriage. So if being against gay marriage makes one unacceptable to gay bloggers like Mike Rogers, then I hope to see him and the other gay bloggers come out against Hillary Clinton soon.

What is so reprehensible about this to me is the assumption that if one is gay then he must be for gay marriage. There are blacks who are against affirmative action. There are women against abortion. If a gay man who is a politician is against gay marriage, then in Roger's mind, he is a hypocrite. But what does it mean to be against gay marriage? Because it seems to me that he only targets Republicans against it, not Democrats. And almost all the Democrat Candidates, and all of the top tier ones, are against gay marriage. So let's not pretend, as Rogers tries to, that this is a bi-partisan fairy hunt. It isn't it. It's all about getting Republicans.

So that is where Rogers becomes the hypocrite, for only calling out Republicans, instead of calling out Hillary and the rest who are against gay marriage, yet have the continued support of gays like Rogers.
