In a move that surprised very few, Republican Senator Lindsay Graham left the heterosexual community of which he is thought to have been a part for many years and announced that henceforth he will identify as Gay.
"I didn't leave the breeders," Graham complained, "the breeders left me."

  Graham went on to explain that since the retirement of Idaho senator Larry Craig, he had been feeling quite lonely and isolated as one of the Senate's completely straight Republicans.
  He noted that he would not change his stance on EFCA, Health Care, or even on Gay issues. "In fact," he said, "I will probably have even more credibility opposing gay marriage and hate crime legislation as a gay person.
  "No one can accuse me of hating my own self!", he exclaimed, "My right wing positions will carry even greater weight due to my superior morality."
  He also reiterated his belief that being gay is a choice, explaining, "Look, I just chose to choose to be gay, so doesn't that prove my point?"
He noted that opposing gay marriage and preventing the inclusion of sexual preference in hate crimes legislation would be his top priority in the Senate.

  In a related development, conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has announced that he is changing his ethnic identity to white.
  "I just feel like it's no fun being a rabid black conservative anymore," Clarence explained, "I used to be able to write my own ticket, but it's old hat now, so what's the point of even being black?" He also expressed his disappointment and occasional bitterness that 90% of black people think he's a jerk.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
