Former Republican National Committee chairman and Bush-Cheney campaign manager Ken Mehlman has announced publicly that he is gay, CBS News chief political consultant and politics editor for The Atlantic Marc Ambinder reports.
"It's taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life," Mehlman said. "Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I've told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they've been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that's made me a happier and better person. It's something I wish I had done years ago, but I didn't."
Mehlman was RNC chairman from 2005 to 2007 after serving as Bush-Cheney campaign manager in 2004. He also served as White House political director during President Bush's first term.

Has anyone noticed that about the time their bats start to go limp, some players show up at the park to begin catching?
“”Ken Mehlman is not gay,” Steve Schmidt, a senior official of the Bush campaign and a friend of Mehlman’s told Jake Tapper, an ABC News correspondent who wrote the piece for the [GQ]magazine. “
Well knock me over with a feather ... boa.
The only question then left for Ken to answer is just what role he plays in a relationship. So Ken you do you hit or receive??????
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The first time I heard this guy talk I knew he had way too few Higgs Bosons in his loafers.
If someone makes an issue of their own vile, perverted, immoral and disease-spreading sexual preferences, then I'm damn sure gonna criticize the hell out of them. If they would just STFU and not announce to the world who and/or what they prefer to diddle, then it wouldn't be an issue.
But of course, homos can't do that, because it's all part of pushing their agenda. They identify themselves first and foremost by their sexual preferences, and try to force the rest of us to accept them as normal, when they're anything but.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.
Now when Boy George and Elton John came out, those were some shockers.
Boy George is gay?!?!?!? Say it isn’t so.
Aren’t ladies and gentlemen supposed to refrain from religious and sexual discussions in public?
>>> no wonder the GOP did so terrible in 2008, the Chairman was too preoccupied
Insightful analysis. Clearly Mehlman being gay is what crashed AIG, Morgan-Stanley, and generally put the US into a recession six weeks before the vote.
That made me laugh harder than I have laughed in a long time. Thank you for that.
Only guessing. Not sure about these guys, though:
I thought Bush’s campaigns were pretty limp-wristed. Now I’d take even money that his Chief-of-Staff was a fisting fan.
Indeed ya got to be a macho macho man.
Let me get this straight: a man who finds erotic fascination with the hairy fecal elimination canals of other men WAS PUT IN CHARGE OF THE RNC? And those idiots wonder why we are losing faith in their leadership?
