Senator Lindsey Graham: “I Ain’t Gay. Sorry.”
South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham is profiled in the New York Times, and presented as a maverick (sorry, John McCain) who stands up to the crazies in his own party, particularly the tea partiers. It’s been floated that Graham is gay and some conservatives claim he takes moderate positions so Democrats don’t out him. (h/t The Political Carnival)
Less tame are the blogosphere monikers, like “Miss Lindsey,” that play off of Graham’s never-married status. During a South Carolina Tea Party rally this spring, one speaker created an uproar by postulating that Graham supported a guest-worker program out of fear that the Democrats might otherwise expose his homosexuality. (Graham smirked when I brought this up. “Like maybe I’m having a clandestine affair with Ricky Martin,” he said. “I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.”)Click here for reuse options!
