This is getting old.....

It's getting so I'm afraid to open my closet door these days....

....'cause everytime I do, another gay Republican falls out....

I mean, seriously, how many can there be?

The whole Senator Larry ("I am NOT gay!) Craig thing is all over the news. See the story here. And then there's this:

I got a real laugh out of Tboggs description of Florida Representative Bill Allen who tried (unsuccessfully) to talk his way out of being caught "out of the closet". Here's the funniest line:

Allen, R-Merritt Island, is accused of agreeing to
pay $20 to perform oral sex on an undercover police officer July 11 in a public-park restroom.

In the taped statement that was tossed out Monday,
Allen said he was just playing along because he was intimidated by the undercover officer, who he described as a "stocky black guy," and that he thought he was going to be robbed.


When Allen was being placed in a marked patrol car
after his arrest outside Veteran's Memorial Park, he asked whether it "would help" if he was a state legislator, according to a police report.

The officer said he replied, "No."

Police also said Allen indicated he had $800 in his

Allen's attorney, Greg Eisenmenger, said both remarks
should be suppressed because Allen had not been read his Miranda rights by the arresting officer.But Whitaker argued they were made voluntarily and should be admissible.

I think the comment about having $800 in the car may be just a tad prejudicial since it seems that Bob Allen was implying that he had enough cash on hand to blow forty cops at twenty bucks a pop, which, and not be judgmental here, seems kind of slutty. (Tbogg's quote, not mine)


Yes, I know the mention of the $800 was a stealthy attempt to bribe but TBogg's sense of humor is too good to pass up.

There's something amiss here....though....Republicans protesting gays and leading campaigns against homosexual it the Shakespearian "methinks (they) doth protest too much..." ? Hmmmmmm...
