Cory Booker Won't Address Gay Rumors
The Root ^ | August 29, 2013 | Jozen Cummings

Posted on 08/29/2013 7:06:56 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

As he prepares to run for the U.S. Senate, Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker is having to answer questions about his sexuality, and according to Gawker, he isn't doing a very good job.

Presumably because he has mostly remained unattached throughout his time as mayor, with no publicly known wife prospects, whispers of Booker's sexuality have been swirling around him for years now. But with the high profile that would come with being a senator, the whispers may become yells for answers -- Gawker seems determined to start the rallying cry.

Newark Mayor and U.S. Senate hopeful Cory Booker is once again parrying questions about whether he likes dudes. Is he gay? Bisexual? Completely straight? (Asexual?) The only person who knows for sure -- Booker himself -- refused to specify twice yesterday, first in a Washington Post profile and, in a follow-up interview, to the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

And if it isn't the media pining for an answer, it's his fellow political compatriots and foes.

Still, Booker's default supporters in the Democratic establishment are not the only ones to notice their candidate's unwillingness to discuss his own sexuality, which Booker himself considers to be a pedestrian facet of existence. (It's a little difficult to play up the normalcy of gayness in the abstract when you refuse to discuss it in the specific.) Indeed, for the past year or so, his sexuality, and sex life, have become topics of immense attention among GOP opposition researchers -- the hired guns who dig up dirt on the opposing party's ticket.

A source familiar with a team of New Jersey opposition researchers working with state Republicans recently told Gawker that the team appointed a member to research the relationship between Booker and a particular male confidante.

Good for him. Don’t ask, don’t tell. Not my business, I don’t care and I certainly don’t want to be told.

I would think being gay would be a plus in politics these days.

If that’s true, then Jim McGreevey ought to be making a comeback right about now.

Forget the rumors. When is he going to address the facts about his hilarious imaginary friend "T-Bone?"

I’m sure he will show up in commercials with a wife and family doing family things. Cory Booker, good for families, good for America.

Among Democrats especially. I figure homosexuality will be required of all Democratic politicians from now on.

Uh-oh! You're in big trouble with the Imaginary Friends Liberation Front now, FredZarguna! They've got their own parades now, their own signs and slogans and colors and bumper stickers, and their own faction in the Democratic [sic] party. As a matter of fact, President You Didn't Build That has some imaginary friends of his own, and isn't at all ashamed of them.

Have you ever been to one of those Friends of Imaginary Friends Pride parades?

Everything starts off OK, but then the marchers start yelling at each other for stepping on the toes of their imaginary friends.

It gets real ugly real quick.

I'm especially afraid of imaginary friends wearing back-less chaps... [Which Felix Pappalardi may have sung about in Theme From an Imaginary Western]

But I'm more concerned by Barack's imaginary relatives. The uncle who liberated Auschwitz comes to mind, and of course he has Dreams From an Imaginary Father.

Because, as I've said before: "You can pick your imaginary friends, but you can't pick your imaginary relatives."

I could care less whether Cory Booker is gay or not!!! I care that Cory Booker is another failed Obamabot bigot across the board and will not serve NJ well at all!!! Best to think......before voting for this low life, shyster, flim/flam Obamabot clone!!! Vote for Steve Lonegan for United States Senator in the special election im mid October. He will be a great, honest representative for the people and state of New Jersey!!!

Good link. it would make for a great campaign ad. Do you want to meet Cory Booker’s friend, T-Bone? and next switch to a blank screen.

Why not? What if you didn't have brothers and sisters to practice incest with as a child? What if you killed your mom because she was mean? What if, somehow, you didn't get a dad even though you prayed to Santa for months on end? After all, we're all citizens of the imagination, aren't we? Isn't that what it said on MTV or one of those places?

Funny how Booker screwed up on the gay issue. He would have come out of the closet and all the Democrats would praise him for his courage. But now Democrats criticize him for being a coward and they may even accuse him of being a Log Cabin Republican until he gets his sparkles and glitter to make his big announcement. But even when he does, the gay community will not praise him since he first avoided answering the gay question earlier.

Yeah, but he'll still get a skin color pass, won't he?

“address the facts about his hilarious imaginary friend “T-Bone?”
If you aren’t aware, have a look: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/357064/cory-bookers-imaginary-friend-eliana-Johnson";

The article says:

“Price considers himself a mentor and friend to Booker and says Booker conceded to him in 2008 that T-Bone was a “composite” of several people he’d met while living in Newark. “

This is just like Obama’s composite girl friend.

Democrats can make up stuff. Everyone knows that lying is the essence of their ethos.

The great thing about "composites" is that there is no way they can be falsified. They may be "composites" of entirely real people, "composites" of some fictional and some real people, but most likely they're composites of entirely fictional people, which of course means they are nothing more than fictional people.

Serious voters should never accept a "composite" as an explanation for a lie. Serious journalists [an oxymoron] should press for which parts of T-bone are real, so they can be examined.

I agree with you about Steve Lonegan. I am doing some door to door on his behalf out here in Warren County. I would urge all NJ Freepers to try to help the campaign in some way. We have to get a good conservative elected and Lonegan is the guy. If you want to help and don’t know who to call let me know and I will do my best to direct you.

I use the word "gay" only in its original, legitimate sense of happy, light-hearted, frivolous, cheerful, and the like.

I despise, loathe, and detest all Marxists.
