  •  This headline is very newsworthy. (9+ / 0-)

    And it absolutely belongs on a democratic blog.

    Reuters has 'pierced the veil' of traditional coverup. The boldness and honesty of their headline is quite breathtaking:

    "Merv Griffin died a closeted homosexual."

    I couldn't have put it better. I'm sure I've known he was gay for over 20 years. For chrissakes, the stories around West Hollywood of how he would pick up boys were legendary. He was the biggest closet case in Hollywood since Rock Hudson.

    There's nothing wrong with being gay and there's nothing wrong with stating that fact when it's relevant to assessing someone's life. But there IS something very wrong with being a rich, powerful supporter of politicians and a party that denies civil rights to people like yourself. That's bullshit. It's evil. And it absolutely deserves to be uncovered and denounced in the strongest, clearest terms possible.

    So to answer your question, I care about his sexuality and his hypocrisy and his lying and his negligence in failing to support LGBT people when the needs were greatest.

    Harold Ford is full of non-sectarian, racially non-specific, gender-neutral, sexual orientation-inclusive bovine excrement.
