Mehlman Outed from Closet and Job
Yesterday Republican National Committee Chairman,Ken Mehlman, announced that he is stepping down. Not coincidentally, they day before that Bill Maher announced on Larry King Live that Mehlman is gay.
CNN censored those comments from the rebroadcast program. Thank God it is Larry King Live. Maher had already done his duty as a citizen before the corporate media could shut him up.
Will that same corporate media dare ask Mehlman what everyone else is asking? Did he leave as quickly as he did because he would be asked if Maher spoke the truth?
Mehlman's homosexuality has been an open secret for a long time. I often wondered if the gay prostitute (2/15/05 post) in the White House press room was his special friend. We will never know the truth of that either.
It has come to this. Stand up comics are now doing the work of the press.
