Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard that Chimpy’s 2004 campaign manager and former Republican National Committee chairman, Ken Mehlman, finally admitted what everyone already knew–he’s gay. The media was all abuzz. Here are some of what the luminaries at Fox News had to say:

Gretchen Carlson, Steve Doocy, and Brian I’m-the-one-who’s-not-Doocy Kilmeade:

“xxxxxxxxxxxxx”

Sean Hannity:

“xxxxxxxxxxxxx”

Bill O’Reilly:

“xxxxxxxxxxxxx”

Glenn Beck:

“xxxxxxxxxxxxx”

From The Wonk Room at THINK PROGRESS:

When Judge Vaughn Walker struck down Proposition 8, Fox News barely mentioned the story and its most prominent conservative commentators ignored it entirely.  Yesterday, after the Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder reported that former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman — who had orchestrated President Bush’s gay-bating 2004 re-election campaign — was coming out as gay, Fox News Channel remained similarly mum and as of this posting has yet to run a single segment on the story.

The Wedding Panners

From POLITICO:

Republicans in California are remaining largely silent on last week’s ruling overturning Proposition 8. But a band of conservative House members didn’t waste a minute in their day back in Washington, highlighting their opposition to gay marriage.

Reps. Lamar Smith of Texas, Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Steve King of Iowa and John Fleming of Louisiana told reporters on Tuesday that the California federal judge who overturned Prop. 8 acted against the will of voters in striking down the state’s ban on gay marriage.

All Wet Dreams

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

California Republicans begin the 2010 campaign season with something many considered unthinkable just a few months ago – hope that they can win a major statewide race.

They realize the odds are still steep. Only 31 percent of California voters are registered Republicans and no Congressional or legislative district has a majority of GOP voters. And demographically, former state Republican leader and current political analyst Allan Hoffenblum said the GOP has become an “old white guy” party in a state that is rapidly diversifying.

They make an appealing couple!

From ABC News:

President George W. Bush’s first Solicitor General, Ted Olson, filed a lawsuit in US district court on May 22 to protest Prop 8, the California law banning same sex marriage.

Joining with his former opponent in Bush v Gore, David Boies, Olson is suing on behalf of two same-sex couples in California, The Advocate reports: Kristin Perry and Sandra Stier of Berkeley, who have been together for nine years and are the parents of four children, and Paul Katami and Jeffrey Zarrillo of Burbank, who have been together for eight years.

The *Untied* States of America, the Final Installment

Hey comrades amigos hosers mes amis meine Freunde i miei amici mijn vrienden kids! We’ve been exploring what 2010 will look like in the former U.S. of A. after the civil war predicted by Igor Panarin. We’ve covered The Texas Republic and Russian Alaska, the Central North American Republic, and Atlantic America. That, sadly, brings us to the end of our journey, as we consider what it will be like in The Californian Republic (TCR) as it becomes part of China and the new Japanese Hawaii.

Just as the politicians at our previous stops are adjusting to the new reality, so are those in TCR. For example, Senator Bob Bennett of the former state of Utah is taking his ex-state’s values and adapting them to his new environs….

Hey! I bet that, an hour later, you want to discriminate against another minority group!!
