  •  Straight and bi men go to gay bars (none)

    Unless they find a former or current boyfriend who will go on the record, all it is is speculation.
    •  It's not speculation (4.00)
      if someone states he saw Scottie in a gay bar.

      Middle-aged Republicans, by the way, do not go to gay bars all the time. It's one thing for the young, the hip, the urbane to do this--or for people to accompany their friends--but quite another for the most frequently visible member of the Bush White House. It isn't "Real World."

    •  Straight men who are White House Press Secretary? (4.00)
      Would someone in Scotty's position be caught dead in a gay bar, if he were straight?  Even if gay, in closeted DC circles, it's a big risk.  But for the official mouthpiece for the Homophobe-in-Chief to show up there is risking a huge scandal with the wingnuts.  

      If Scotty's going to gay bars, it's not for fashion tips.  We can be sure of that.

      You can never be too rich, too thin, or too cynical.

      •  Not politics (none)
        but religion -- is everyone not familiar with the John Paulk debacle? So many parallels: high-profile sensitive position quite specifically involved with an anti-gay program -- yet he knew perfectly well where he was.

        Some of these guys need, on some level, to get "caught." Pathetic, really.

    •  That's like saying (none)
      no White House intern would ever conduct an affair with the POTUS and then kiss and tell. Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. To my point of view, raising suspicions in people's minds, particularly right wing minds, is just as damaging as an actual person coming forward and claiming "Bush blew me at a truck stop while Rove fisted him using a can of STP." Alright perhaps not quite as damaging, but you get my point.

      There is a certain providence in the fall of a sparrow
