Page scandal exposes GOP's gay identity crisis

By Kathy Kiely, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON At a State Department ceremony this week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warmly acknowledged the family members of Mark Dybul, whom she was swearing in as the nation's new global AIDS coordinator.

As first lady Laura Bush looked on, Rice singled out his partner, Jason Claire, and Claire's mother. Rice referred to her as Dybul's "mother-in-law."

The celebratory moment for a gay couple was emblematic of the political identity crisis facing the Republican Party, two years after an election the GOP won in part by making gay marriage an issue and less than two weeks after revelations about a Republican House member's advances toward teenage boys.
(more, but not about Dybul)

I just find it ironic that the shitweasels up in arms about the use of the term mother-in-law are the same people who based their criminal mis- mal- and non-administration's entire reelection strategy on making it impossible for her to be one (ie, the "in-law" part).

As to the choices found below, I'm open to suggestions. I thought I'd be able to come up with a slew of funny ones, but as you can see, that wasn't exactly the case.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I think there's an extra degree of separation there, but I can do
something like that.
