Perhaps it really should only be a story when we discover that one of them isn't gay, as in the case of South Carolina's current governor. Apparently this is not the case for the man who would replace him.
That's where flamboyant blogger with bulge of bias Mike Rogers toe taps in. He lubed his way into the national consciousness by bringing down idyllic Senator Larry Craig and wise-as-a-whip Representative Mark Foley. This week he has accused 40-year old Lt. Governor André Bauer of secret homosexual tendencies. But Bauer has an absolutely fabulous record defending the rights of families and Christianity. He has loudly opposed Homosexual Marriage, Homosexual Sodomy and Homosexual Adoption. He has profoundly defined marriage as between straights only. Not only that, but he has pushed for the words, "I BELIEVE" and the Christian Cross on South Carolina license plates, fought tax hikes and supported free-market capitalism at every turn.
So this all begs the question, does the accusation of one or two wrong-headed and furtive man-on-man encounters actually make you gay? Couldn't it be a mistake? If you have a great record fighting against the gays, doesn't it cross out a few moments humping a younger man against the wall of some hotel room?
The link's to a parody site because it's amusing, but the story's real.
