Blogroll Addition – GayPatriot

I haven’t blogged at all about the Ken Mehlman story, because who cares, but in reading around I have found cause to finally blogroll a site I’ve actually been reading with some regularity for years – GayPatriot. GayPatriot (Bruce Carroll and Dan Blatt) is roughly to the right of Powerline, and GAY! Doesn’t that just blow your EFFING MIND?!?

But seriously, they’re a site that have been plugging away with good work for a long time, and for their liberal critics, I’d just add that they are doing more, on their lonesome, to see that Republicanism is not mutually exclusive with homosexuality and that the other half of the country is okay with a gay figurehead than any liberal has ever done (or would care to, so invested are they in the liberalism of gays). Anyway, they are more partisan than I normally care for (they are gay Republicans, as opposed to Andrew Sullivan, who is a gay conservative, or A Stitch in Haste’s Kip Esquire, who is a gay libertarian misanthrope (I love you Kip)), but always a good read. Onto the blogroll go they.

Also: adding GayPatriot to the blogroll is pretty much all I’m going to say on the subject of Ken Mehlman.


  1. Incidentally, as a pure coincidence of alphabetization, if you added Freedom Democrats, Gay Patriot, and Glenn Greenwald together, divided by three, and created one (super hot) political blogger from the progeny, you’d have me (roughly).

  2. One cannot be a pure misanthrope so long as Christopher Hitchens lives.

    After that, all bets are off.

  3. Don’t be so modest, Kip. You knew Charlie Crist Lindsey Graham Aaron Schock Mark Kirk John Boehner George W. Bush Ken Mehlman was gay long before any of us reported it. Hats off to you.
