    ...having outed Ken Mehlman accurately years ago, and awarding him a "Roy Cohn Award" today at www.blogactive.com.

    McCain/Palin campaign advisor Steve Schmidt lied straight [sic] out to Mike several years ago, insisting that Mehlman wasn't gay.  When Bill Maher named Mehlman as gay on Larry King's show, CNN snipped the admission from the cached video.  (Mike, fortunately, has the original version on his site.)

    One way or another, Ken's hatemongering has earned him enough folding green for a $3.7 million pad in Manhattan.  Let's not say, awwwwwww, Ken gets to bask in the glow of acceptance.  He helped orchestrate the most homophobic Presidential campaign ever, in 2004, and also was on board with W. in 2000.

    To quote Snoopy, "Pffffffffffft!"
