Ken Mehlman: He’s gay (yawn)

From the No Surprise File: Ken Mehlman, former Bush campaign manager, comes out:

Mehlman told Ambinder that he had recently come to the conclusion that he is gay and was looking to become an advocate for gay marriage. He went public in part because he expected to be asked about his sexuality when it became known he was participating in a fundraiser next month for the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), which is supporting a legal challenge to California’s Proposition 8 initiative banning gay marriage.

Mehlman said President Bush “is no homophobe” but acknowledged that the Bush administration used antigay initiatives for political gain. In private conversations with senior Republicans, he said, he fought back against attempts to demonize same-sex marriage.

But not fiercely enough.The earth is full of spineless bimbos like Mehlman.
