I like Mike Rogers, the author of BlogActive.com. Rogers uses his powers for good, outing hypocritical legislators who hide in their pathetic closets while publicly voting against gay rights. From a profile in the Washington Post:
For three years now, he's been a feared one-man machine, “outing,” he says, nearly three dozen senior political and congressional staffers, White House aides and, most damagingly, Congress members on his blog. On Capitol Hill, a typical phone call from Rogers — “Are you gay?” he'd ask — is “a call from Satan himself,” says a former high-ranking congressional staffer whose name is on the list.
Rogers reasons that there's justice behind his tactics — “odious,” “outrageous” and “over-the-line” as they might seem to his detractors.
In Rogers's mind, if you're against gay rights in your public life and you live a secret homosexual life, all bets are off.
That's my thought exactly. Leave 'em in the closet if they aren't doing anything to hurt our community – they can wallow in their self-loathing til the cows come home. But folks like Robert Traynham (you thought I was going with Larry Craig, didn't ya?) deserve every single moment of public humiliation, ridicule and political fallout they get. Every single bit.
Can ya tell I have strong feelings on this? 🙂
So check out Mike's blog.
