Is Denny Hastert gay? It has been suggested by many, including Left Talk radio this week, that yes he is gay. Some will say.....no, that can't be!
Follow me to gay world........
Before I begin to get into the real meat of this diary, pardon the small pun here, let me say this......I AM A LESBIAN, so therefore I have a license to probe into all things homosexual and queer.
What was on Left Talk Radio last evening? Hmmmmm, one show, not naming names here, said that Dennis Hastert and Tom Reynolds are roommates in Washington, that they live together. Shocking isn't it?? OMG!! Wait until the Conservatives hear that one! Gasp!!
Ya know, my Gaydar goes off everytime I see a news clip with Tom Reynolds. My Gaydar gets confused with Denny Hastert though. When my Gaydar gets confused that usually means that the person is bisexual.
Denny's wife was seen shopping in Washington and was approached and asked where does she live? Mrs. Hastert, who, shall we say, looks like a gym teacher that we have all had at one time or another, supposedly replied that she lives in a Washington area hotel. OMG!! What will the conservatives think about that one?
Wednesday, October 4........after watching my hero Keith Olbermann, I stayed on MSNBC to check out what was happening on Joe Scarborough. Sometimes Joe has a pretty good show, and sometimes after 5 minutes I turn Joe off because he is turning me off with his conservative crap. I have to say though, lately Joe's show has been pretty good. Yes, I do give credit where credit is due.
So anyway, it was interesting, news about the Foley scandal and all. Us gays love a good sex scandal, cause all the conservatives know that we are about the sex. Sometimes we can't get enough of it ya know! But we all know that the Conservatives are jealous because we're getting sex and they're not. Too repressed and all that ya know. God, if they would just loosen up a little bit maybe they would get more sex.
Where was I? Oh yea, so anyway....on the second half of Joe's show he has Al Franken and David Bossie from Citizens Untied, errr, United. You remember David don't you? He was the LEAD INVESTIGATOR in the Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal. Remember that? How could we all forget that gem of an investigation and impeachment circus. Right?
Ok, I'll get back to my diary here. So Joe is talking to Al (love ya Al!) and David about Foley and all the goings on with who reported what and to whom, or didn't remember getting the reports, etc. And then Joe drops this bomb:
Is it not the case, David, that there are--and we won`t name any names, but there are gay members of the Republican Party in Congress right now that hold pretty powerful positions, that have not come out of the closet and that vote in a way that could be termed anti-gay?
WOW!! You have to read the transcript cause Joe's show kept getting better and better after that bomb was dropped.
Ya have to scroll down for the second half of the show for Joe, Al and David. OMG Joe, what a bombshell! Whoa!
I was reading somehwere on the internets the other day, you know the internets, those tubes and tube things that makes all of the internet possible? Anyway, I was reading the other day that ol' Denny Hastert had himself a teenage boy problem back when he was a high school coach. There was something about inappropriate contact with a young boy or something like that. He escaped from that little no-no by quitting coaching and running for Congress! No lie! That's when he got into politics. Funny isn't it? I wish I could remember where I saw that gem, maybe it was AmericaBlog.
Who needs LOGO, that new Gay TV Network, when you have the best gay show in America right in Washington DC!! Republican gays in the closet! Gay aides! Mark Foley! Woo hoo! This is great stuff coming out of Washington. It's got all the makings of a hit TV show!
God I love politics, don't you?
By the way, since Robert Traynham, Sen. Rick Santorum's top aide came out, Rick has been a snappy dresser. Look back about 5 years or more at the pictures of Little Ricky. He has always worn tailored suits, but they were always dark suits. In the last 2 years Little Ricky is wearing some lighter colored suits, AND I saw a news conference where he was wearing a light gray suit with a pink shirt. I thought boy does he look particularly snappy today. And then I remembered, oh yea that's right, his top aide is gay. Little Ricky is taking fashion advice from his top aide. I am no fashion maven, after all I am a lesbian, but I do like to see snappy dressers, and Little Ricky has become really snappy. That doesn't mean I like Rick, OMG no. He is my Senator and I am a Dem who is working VERY HARD for his defeat in 26 days. We are going to send our Senator back home to Virginia.
