1. But it says that Randy Bean's sexual orientation hasn't been stated.
So how can she be Rice's "lesbian lover"?

I have no idea whether Condolezza Rice is a lesbian. Nor, quite frankly, do I particularly care. She has never said anything homophobic or disparaging towards GLBT people.

2. True, but
neither has she spoken against the homophobic policies of the Republican party.

I don't care what her sexuality is either. I do care that we have politicians who acquiesce to evil....whether they are gay or straight.

7. A major criticism is she did not condemn or comment on
a hanging of some gay men by Iran.

6. Her buddy is self described as a "Liberal Progressive".
That is confusing. Isn't "Progressive" a sub term for "Liberal"?

It seems to me that Ms Rice is an opportunist. I have never viewed her as a RWinger. She was offered a job with Poppa Bush & she snapped it up. Then Busholini took a liking to her & elevated her into the Big Time, where she has been useless.

10. Nope, she's a right winger. They named the "Vulcans" after her home town
She had to grow up a bit and start acting more mature when Bush ran out their resident babysitter, Powell. Forced into his place, she started favoring diplomacy more and Cheney-like hollow bluster less. But of course by then she was working surrounded by the diplos at Foggy Bottom rather than the hard corps ideologues in the West Wing. Never a strong intellect, she was easily swayed to mainstream (ie, nonmoronic) conservative foreign policy thinking.

But she was always a neocon and will always be one. It's just in her present job, she's being forced into occasional spats of sanity.

8. And GW is ----?

They are all living so many lies.

To think she can be so mean to people that are homosexual by the policies they endorse,

How can you have a best friend that is gay and not take a stand for justice for your friend and others?
:mad:

Where is Larry Fynt!

12. Rice has never--to my knowledge--engaged in gay bashing.
I think that should make her off limits to forced outing. I doubt it will, but my gut says it should.

16. Setting Aside the Sexual Orientation Angle, There Is A Bigger Story Within This Story
If you read the article, Bean offers an explanation for the shared housing with Rice:

"Bean explains this to Kessler by saying that she had some medical bills that drained her financially years ago, and Rice and Blacker helped her out by buying the house with Bean."

I think that the real story here is that Rice is a member of a political party that has a careless disregard for people with medical bills.

19. That I would agree with
If Ms. Bean is the lover of Ms. Rice is their own business, but the point you make is a valid one.

17. OK, Now I'm Confused
Does Condi's husband know about this? Is GW into 3 ways? What's the real story here?
