George Bush's "Super Gay Traitor" Pounds Christians To Submit
The New York Times reports: As the Supreme Court considers overturning California's ban on same-sex marriage, gay people await a ruling that could change their lives. But the case has already transformed one gay man: Ken Mehlman, the once-closeted Republican operative who orchestrated President George W. Bush's 2004 re-election on a platform that included opposition to same-sex marriage.
Now Mr. Mehlman, a private equity executive in Manhattan, is waging what could be his final campaign: to convince fellow Republicans that gay marriage is consistent with conservative values and good for their party. His about-face, sparked in part by the lawyer who filed the California lawsuit, has sent him on a personal journey to erase what one new friend in the gay rights movement calls his "incredibly destructive" Bush legacy.
He remains controversial, both applauded and vilified. On the left, he is either an unlikely hero or a hypocritical coward. On the right, some Republicans embrace him; others deem him a traitor.
LIB NEW YORK TIMES FINDS IT FUNNY AND IRONIC
Eugene Delgaudio president of Public Advocate says:
"Ken Mehlman is the "super gay" consultant that makes the model for Ann Coulter, Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed. Make millions and get it from both sides, the pro-family side and the anti-family side.
That's twice the retainer for half the work.
Why is it wrong, illegal, for one consultant, Jack Abramoff, to be jailed for taking money from two competing Indian reservations when here we have a host of consultants ripping off the Christian community. (Abramoff has written "Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Corrupton from America's Most Notorious Lobbyist"). It is time for Conservatives to expose the traitors who take money from both sides in our movement."
