The Bauer-Musgrave-Santorum Pandora's Box
From Chuck Muth's DC Confidential:
INSIDE THE GOP
"Amid the Cabinet reshuffling, little attention has been paid to the appointment of Bush campaign manager Ken Mehlman as Republican National Committee chairman," writes political pundit Michael Barone. "But Mehlman's appointment could turn out to be as significant for our politics as Condoleezza Rice's is likely to be for foreign policy."
This is a great "insider" piece for those of you who like to keep up with what’s going on at the RNC. And since Mehlman will be the guy we’ll likely being dealing with beginning in January, it might be a good idea to get some background on the man with the plan. Catch Barone’s column here:
On the other hand, a blogger named Michael Rogers has been on a jihad to "out" gay Republicans in his anger over the Federal Marriage Amendment...and he now has Mehlman in his sights. In addition, the Washington Blade, a gay newspaper in the nation’s capital, is raising questions about Mehlman’s orientation.
Frankly, I couldn’t care less if Ken’s gay or not...and I doubt if most other people do, either. The guy knows how to organize precincts, recruit volunteers and win elections. That’s all I care about. His sex life is HIS business. But how will the religious right take it if it turns out the next Chairman of the Republican National Committee doesn’t like girls?
This is the Pandora’s box Rep. Marilyn Musgrave and Gary Bauer opened up for us all with the FMA. Gee, thanks folks.
That's my question too..... The Leviticus Crowd is already unhappy about Mary Cheney.
