So I don’t know anything about PoliticsOne or Roger Stone so I’ve got questions out to some peeps who might. In the interim, I will add the following thought:
Um, yeah, right.
Miss Carol Rome – the “girlfriend” in question – turned up last night on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” The episode was a Lost Footage hour, and Rome’s Hamptons soiree made the cut even though she wasn’t actually a housewife ever mentioned or featured on the show. Coincidence? Sure. Convenient? Absolutely. Can’t hurt to raise her profile early and often. (Not that hoards of Republican voters are watching Bravo, but I recognized the name and connected the dots. I can’t be the only one.)
It’s possible my gaydar needs calibrating, and Captain Supertan is straight, but seemingly accidental antics – like an elevator make-out tape – and Crist suddenly making the rounds with a
wife girlfriend to “prove” the governor likes girls is making me more skeptical, not less.
UPDATE: I forgot. There was this too.
Just to be clear – I’m not trying to give Crist a hard time. I’d be thrilled if he were gay. I’d prefer it. Go him! He’s a popular politician, and if he just happened to be gay, it’d be more ammo in the fight against close-minded homophobes – evidence that sexual preference does not a good or bad human make.
I’m just not sure this growing over-denial strategy is the best or most believable course of action for the possible VP pick. It’s just going to make some work even harder to dig up evidence to the contrary. And if any exists, I trust that those who really want to find it absolutely will.
