    You just can’t get good help these days

    Question: How is it that the best PR strategists, brand managers, event planners, and visual merchandisers the world over are gay…while top jobs at gay PACs attract people who are so irredeemably incompetent at image management?

    I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this whole thing about “The List” (via Eric), but it’s looking more and more like (surprise!) a strategy by lefty gay groups to show the rest of America how readily queers are willing to turn on each other for cheap, short-term political expediency. Way to show gay youths who are just coming out that they’re taking their place in a community in which people value forthrightness, respect individual choice, and stand up for each other, guys. The clear ethical infraction of exposing people’s private lives without their permission is bad enough, but the sheer self-defeating idiocy on display here is almost too much to stand.

      Hmmmm… Let me see if I understand this:

      Bad: Outing communists.

      Good: Outing gays.

      Bad: Enticing young men into gay sex talk (or sex) who are subordinates.

      Good: Having straight sex with a subordinate.

      Bad: Admitting gay indiscretions when caught and removing yourself from office.

      Good: Lying (under oath) about having straight sex with a subordinate and refusing to leave office when caught.

      Did I get that right?

      Now which was the political party that is supposed to hate gay people again?

      But Connie, he didn’t HAVE sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky. Don’t you remember? And they were MEAN to Ethel Rosenberg. I remember that from Angels in America.
