Bachmann’s Husband… A Closet Queen?

Lot of speculation zooming around the Internet about Michelle Bachmann’s husband being a “Closet Queen” – a gay man who is hiding his gayness.

Marcus Bachmann

Marcus and Michelle Bachmann. Is that wrist a little limp?

At this point there doesn’t seem to be any smoking gun – just a lot of speculation. Much of that is coming from the gay community, who have no reason to love Michelle’s anti-gay crusading antics.

However, considering how many anti-gay conservative Republicans (Such as this Attorney General in Alabama reportedly caught in bed with another man by his wife just last week)  seem to get caught in “corpus delecti” with someone of the same sex each week…

And the tendency for folks to come popping out of the woodwork with salacious details when politicians or celebrities are involved…

Stay tuned!

Bachmann Rumor Grows Louder

…If you aren’t yet familiar with the growing whispers about Michele Bachmann’s campaign—the uncorroborated speculation that the candidate’s profoundly antigay hubby, Marcus, is a closeted gay man—you will be. The chatter has already made its way from the blogs and Twitter (Cher tweeted that Marcus has tripped her exquisitely tuned gaydar) to the alternative press to The Daily Show, where Jon Stewart and Jerry Seinfeld left each other in stitches this week taking shots at Marcus Bachmann’s effeminate manner and “center-square gay” voice. (Anyone out there old enough to remember Paul Lynde?) As Stewart joked, the guy is “an Izod shirt away from being the gay character on Modern Family.” Clips of the comedians’ faux “comedy repression” session promptly popped up on the websites of such stodgy outlets as The Washington Post and The Atlantic…

The Minnesota congresswoman has lamented that involvement in “the gay and lesbian lifestyle” is a life of “personal bondage, personal despair, and personal enslavement,” while her husband has charmingly likened bi-curious youth to “barbarians” who must be “educated” and “disciplined”—parenting advice that manages at once to sound both draconian and pervy.

In short, we’re talking here about a couple that has planted its flag on the lush green fields of militant anti-gaydom and dared the deviants to take their best shot.

Which is precisely what is happening now—and is likely to accelerate as the congresswoman’s profile and poll numbers rise.

Whoops! National Enquirer Backpedals on Obama Affair Story

Apparently National Enquirer jumped on a “story” with no “there” there…

National Enquirer Retracts Claims of Obama Affair Video, Already

The Enquirer decided to spend the good will it earned from breaking an actual story — the John Edwards affair — on an incredibly shabby tale about an alleged Obama affair captured on video. They’ve already retracted the video part.

Just hours after they ‘broke’ it the, Enquirer are now saying there is no video, according to Mediaite. So all they have left, essentially, is the testimony of a limo driver. Who didn’t see anything, really. In a way, it’s nice that we’re back to business as usual.

Gee – I can’t wait for some Tea Bagged birther…

To demand Vera’s birth certificate.

Mainstream Journalist Mentions Vera Baker!

No one’s going to ignore the National Enquirer’s reporting on political sex scandals. It is at the height of its prestige now, having been talked about as a serious Pulitzer Prize contender for its coverage of the John Edwards scandal.
The tabloid has cred. And some conservatives and anti-Obama liberals are complaining about the media’s refusal to “cover” the Enquirer’s web splashes about then-Senate candidate Obama’s alleged extramarital affair with a finance staffer, Vera Baker. The lede reads: “PRESIDENT OBAMA in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a D.C. hotel with a former campaign aide.”  Is the media covering for Obama? Are they too afraid to ask the question, fearing ridicule from their peers? Read the rest of this entry »

National Enquirer/Drudge Claim Obama Affair

Ms Baker is hot, if true - The Prez Isn't Pulling a Tiger!

National Enquirer Claims President Obama had Affair with Vera Baker in 2004

Scandal has reached the White House. Well, that’s according to the National Enquirer, which outed Tiger Woods. Here’s an excerpt, which the Drudge Report claims could topple the Obama presidency:

Reports out of Washington, DC:  PRESIDENT OBAMA has been caught in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC hotel with a former campaign aide.

A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.

While Baker has insisted in the past that “nothing happened” between them, reports reveal that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair.

Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says in 2004 that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous in where Obama was staying.  An ENQUIRER reporter has confirmed the limo’s driver account of the secret 2004 rendezvous.

James Brown – Do the “Camel Walk” … Not the Zombie

Apparently there has been an internet rumor circulating at the speed of light around the Internet that James Brown’s body is missing from the crypt where he was buried on his Daughter’s property. Like a lot of rumors on the WWW, this one got around the world 43 times – before anyone got around to checking the facts.

James Cuts A Move in the "Hood"

Funeral director lays James Brown rumor to rest

A “Super Bad” Internet rumor is playing “I Got You” with the British tabloids, which claimed yesterday that the corpse of soul superstar James Brown was stolen, but South Carolina cops and a funeral director say the papers are “Talking Loud and Saying Nothing.”

“I have not heard that,” said the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, which has jurisdiction over the area where Brown was laid to rest. “I would expect we would have knowledge of such a thing.”

Charles Reid of C.A. Reid Funeral Home, who managed the 2006 burial of the Godfather of Soul in a mausoleum at his daughter’s home, said the rumor is false.

James Brown’s daughter LaRhonda Pettit reportedly said his body was missing on the eve of an autopsy meant to prove he was poisoned. The story got picked up and traveled around the world before it landed back in South Carolina, where Reid laid it to rest.

KKKarl Rove’s Upbringing

My last post was about a Republican closet queen who had been outed by his own drunken actions. KKKarl Rove is on the road shilling his book, one portion of which deals with his difficult upbringing. One part of that is his parent’s divorce, and mother’s subsequent suicide –

“I just wanted to set the record straight, because I mean, again, this was a political attack on me,” Rove told Lauer. “In order to get to me, people had to say ugly things about my parents. I don’t know whether my father was, at the end of his life, gay or not. I just don’t. I don’t think so, but I don’t know … My mother never said to us that their marriage fell apart because my father was gay.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In his new book, “Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight,” Rove writes:

“I have become an adjective. There is something called a Rovian-style of campaigning and it’s meant as an insult. One columnist said it consists mainly of throwing mud until it sticks. One prominent blogger described the elements of a textbook Rovian race as fear-based, smear-based and anything goes.”

Others, including fellow Republicans, don’t buy Rove’s denials. As Lauer reported, “Roy Fletcher, McCain’s deputy campaign manager, said of the South Carolina smear, quote, ‘This whole thing, it was orchestrated by Rove.’ ”

And Cindy McCain, the senator’s wife, said she would not stab Rove in the back if he walked by her. “I would stab him in the front,” she reportedly said.

Lauer also read a quote from Matt Latimer, a former Bush speechwriter, who wrote of Rove: “He was what all the liberals said he was, the villain. And to make matters worse, a clumsy one at that. He turned out to be less a Voldemort than a Boris Badenov chasing Rocky and Bullwinkle.”

Rove has quite possibly been the most destructive force in American politics since George McDuffie fabricated the “40 Bales of Cotton” fiction supported by John Calhoon which directly led to the Civil War.

Calhoun, a brilliant orator and writer, was a proponent of Republicanism, which he saw as implying slavery, states’ rights, limited government, and nullification.

Were justice really applicable to all people in this country…

Karl Rove would be sitting in a prison somewhere, convicted of treason for his role in outing a CIA Agent, along with a few of his closest co-conspirators.

Governor David Paterson is reputed to have a “Tiger Woods Problem” … Or possibly enemies willing to circulate a vicious rumor campaign. At least according to blog reports the NY Times will publish “at any minute” the salubrious details including drug use and the tried and true American Political pastime of Bimbo Boffing!

The American Political freak show continues…

Interesting viewpoint from foreign news.
