And don't forget TEH GAY!
Because, you see, some conservatives 'discovered' that TEH GAY KONSPIRACIE is actually a covert op by the Democrats to infiltrate the Republican Party. Really. Even with top-notch pharmaceuticals, I couldn't make this lunacy up. Said lunacy belongs to the rightwing group Accuracy in Media:
The complex nature of the "dirty trick" against the Republicans over the Mark Foley scandal is beginning to emerge. It doesn't involve a George Soros-funded group or emails that had been in the possession of the media or shopped around by Democratic operatives. Instead, the GOP has played a trick on itself. The party brought so-called gay Republicans into positions of power in Congress only to realize that the confidential information they held about a secret gay network was political dynamite that could backfire.
At this point in the scandal, the issue is not whether there was such a network, but how big it is....
If you are getting the idea that gay Republicans may be closeted Democrats, then you are beginning to understand how the Mark Foley scandal could have been a Democratic Party dirty trick.
In response to the scandal, a representative of the Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual activist group, has been on cable channels like CNN and MSNBC expressing the fear that the Foley scandal will be used to root out homosexual influence in the Republican Party. But the Log Cabin Republicans are so Republican that its board voted 22-2 against endorsing President Bush in 2004 because of his stand against homosexual marriage.
So if the gay Republicans are not really Republicans, what are they? One veteran observer of this network told AIM that the Foley scandal should make it crystal clear that the gay Republicans are in reality "liberal activists" who want to use the party to advance the same homosexual agenda embraced by the Democrats.
Ominously, the Foley scandal suggests that this network has inside information about the sexual behavior of members of Congress and their staffers that can be exploited in order to create scandals at a moment's notice. Only now are House Republican leaders like Dennis Hastert beginning to understand the trap they may have gotten themselves into. They thought they were being tolerant and diverse and constructing a "big tent" when they were giving gay Republicans important positions of power. It is now apparent that this power has been used to sabotage the party from within. Conservatives who blame Soros, the media or the Democrats for this debacle are whistling past the graveyard, which happens to be near the place where Hastert made his statement the other day that staffers will be fired "if there was a cover-up."...
Some liberal and left-wing groups, in addition to the gay Republican organizations, seem fearful of what the investigation might uncover. But radical gay activists sympathetic to the Democratic Party's pro-homosexual agenda are already naming the names of members of the secret network, reaching from Congress into the White House and the Republican National Committee. One such activist is Michael Rogers. Another is John Aravosis, who worked for Republican Senator Ted Stevens from 1989 to 1994...
It's early in the probe, but we may be looking at emerging evidence of a homosexual recruitment ring that operated on Capitol Hill.
They're insane. If being gay wasn't stigmatized within the Republican Party's Christopath Uruk-hai base, this would not be an issue. Idiot hatemongers. Hopefully, they won't find out about the Evilutionary Konspiracy too. If they do, then it's all up to the Jews...
Update: John Lynch exposes the liberal conspiracy.
Mike, I think I love you just for the "Christopath Uruk-hai base" phrase.
Log Cabin Republicans as a stealth Democratic infiltration strategy. Sounds like something only the Watergate Party could have cooked up.
So, let's recap: NOT wanting to endorse re-election of a president who advocates denial of your civil rights is evidence that you are a stealth operative within your own party. Makes sense to me.
I guess the two Log Cabin Republicans who were just fine with second-class citizenry are...stealth Democrats who have converted to Republicanism? Decoys? Red herrings? Or just sadly, tragically, pathetically confused human beings who are unable to speak up in even a minimal way for their own self-interest - within the party that's all about self-interest? Say, that would make them just like...working class Democrats who vote for Republicans who raise their taxes, deliver corporate welfare, and help their corporate buddies ship American jobs offshore! Hmmmm....maybe they really are Democrats. But then, I would say their stealth strategy isn't working so awfully well.
You just can't make shit like this up.

If those upstanding family-values members of Congress are only having hetero sex within marriage, what scandals could be created? Seems to me that this writer is letting the cat just a little bit out of the bag.
