pssst have you heard about the new House Majority Leader? wink wink
GOP congressional officials said Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., will recommend that Rep. David Dreier of California step into those duties. Some of the duties may go to the GOP whip, Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri. The Republican rank and file may meet as early as Wednesday night to act on Hastert's recommendation.

1. I understand that Larry Flynt has an arensal ready to roll out
which undeniably 'outs' this self-loathing bastard.
Stay tuned...

8. Really? Flynt doesn't pull any punches if he has real evidence
that will stand up in court. Didn't Livingston (R-LA) resign as speaker of the house to pre-empt a Flynt announcement about his affair(s)?

God bless Larry Flynt. An unlikely patriot! :patriot:

2. Drier and Blunt .... not much of a choice
If the put Blunt up there, that's as bad as Delay, what with the allegations against Blunt (since we're at Defcon 3 I can't find the damned link).

If Drier goes up - and it appears he's the guy - then I would just LOVE tro see him outted.

The religionuts all know what a gay man looks like. Make the allegation in public, point out the facts, and let 'er rip.

It is 'take no prisoners' time. Scorch the RW earth.

Just do it through surrogates .......

3. There is no place for gays in the Republican Party
and the same could be said for blacks.

Therefore, I really don't see a need to pull punches when it comes to gay or black Republicans.

10. A very bigoted statement...
that became a racist statement in the body of your message. You're inferring that gays and blacks should only have ONE political belief because of their sexual orientation and race. And if they don't have the political belief YOU feel they should have then you see no problem persecuting them because of it. Very progressive of you.

4. I relayed....
my thoughts about watching Dryer manage a bill on the floor to a member of the rules committee. Told him what an asswipe Drier is.

He said, "I know what you mean, I have to work with him".

5. If he is, so what?
Gay is acceptable now. At least in one of the parties. I say let everyone know. Who cares? If the Rethugs crucify him, he can always switch parties.

6. He's a hypocrite. That's what we care about. It's not that he's gay
it's that he works against gay rights and supports the RW fundy agenda.

He's evil but in a prettier package than Delay.
