Since he made the Out 100 three years running, I'm going to go ahead and doubt that.



He's not Gay until he outs himself, that's
how it works. Anything else is rumor and
inyourendo. (inuendo, you see what I
did there?)

I think a report a day on what Drudge thinks of the current issues would not be to much to expect.



Then it would not be news or a "report" it would be commentary and an editorial.

Yeah, funny thing...who gives a shit? Gay, straight, whatever...he delivers the product promised and does it well.

No one seems to worry much about his sexuality. Well, except those who just have to do so...as I know you don't!!

Who gives a crap whether he is gay or straight?

He provides something people want to see and he is successful.

Being "gay" isn't something to be "guilty" of, of course, but why would anything but a statement from the person that is supposed to be "gay" be acceptable? Does he have to declare for one team or the other to remain eligible? This strange desire to make everyone express their bedroom preferences is ridiculous and always has been. I don't care whether a person is in the closet, out of the closet, can't find the closet, or whatever.

Is there a definitive statement from him declaring "gayness"? If not, he should be left alone and any of those folks who just feel the need to "out" people should mind their own business.

I don't like perp walks (innocent until proven guilty) and being gay isn't a crime...so why not give those who may or may not be so alone? I know what someone will say...oh, heavens, he has a position not supported by many gays that is odd with us, so he needs to own his sexuality...no, gay, straight, bi, asexual, or whatever, he has the right to have his own opinions and be left alone.

Gays can be so amusing. One minute the gay lobby (and "Out" is surely part of that) says to stay out of their bedrooms. The next minute, they stick their own nose in someone's bedroom and declare him gay. FWIW I see no evidence in Drudge being gay. He is male, single, and reclusive. That means nothing.

Heck, if I had that kind of cash and celebrity I'd be reclusive too. No privacy, constant threats, total hassle.

Or is it because he wears a fedora?

I know all of us (including me) have headed off on a Drudge tangent, but back to the election...

Perry has ended his bid very early on. He just never could get any traction and pretty much everyone remembers how inept he was as a candidate last time plus he did nothing over the cycle since then to make an impact; I didn't think he ever had a shot.

There isn't a huge impact when someone with little support drops out but it will be interesting to see where the people who supported him end up in the polls moving forward. Which candidate excites them enough to take the place of the one who was their favorite? Not much percentage-wise, of course, but it will be interesting to see because it could indicate a candidate who is gaining more traction.

Meanwhile, Hillary continues to not be able to figure out how to shed the email server issue. Perhaps telling the truth, continuing to tell the truth, and stopping some of the changing answers would help. If there is nothing criminal, perhaps just owning the issue, admitting that you made a mistake, and weathering that storm would help. Answer the committee's questions, answer the news people's questions, and answer them the same.

It isn't usually the event, it is the cover-up...

Y'all know I see Obama as a poor President; I see him as more Presidential than Hillary by a long shot. She totally lacks Bill's charm and doesn't seem to have the ability to shed controversies as skillfully as he did.

More will follow before IA as is common. In 1996 Pete Wilson was in it all of 3 weeks or so. That was before most people were online so harder to sustain back then; I had hopes for him but the fix was in for Dole. I still say what this does is make room at the "adults table" for Carly, at least at the debates.

She cannot do this, it would end her hopes in an instant. What is the truth? Anyone who worked in an office with email and phones knows the reason. Well, anyone with half a brain......

Office email is monitored, controlled, and most important, retained. I knew from the first time I had a company email not to put anything I did not want read on it. We were even told it was monitored, as if I had to be told. Some folks have to be told, though, including a VP who sent out the Paris Hilton tape. Ditto phones. Company phone, someone might be listening. While they did not care about a few personal calls, I never made a one, I went mafia-style to a public phone or used my cell.

Hillary did not want her emails being read unless she allowed it. This is simple stuff to understand. Most liberals understand what I am saying but want to keep saying "WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE" over and over so the LIVs tire of the whole thing. But it is finding legs now. She is stuck. It was too calculated to say, "Ooops" as if she ran a fantasy football pick on the work email.

I'm of the opinion that hypocrites who peddle anti-gay rhetoric and then turn out to be a closeted gay themselves should be sent adrift on an ice floe.
