Jonah Goldberg took down Jim McGreevey on Friday in a very insightful column. He received this most interesting comment from a reader of The Corner at National Review Online.
As a gay liberal NRO-reader, thank you for the superbly sensiscal column on Governor McGreevey. The man’s a schmuck, and a schmuck on a publicity blitz at that. But don’t hold your breath waiting for much condemnation from mainstream gay organizations. Most voting gays know only that McGreevey came out and are unfamiliar with the Governor’s, ah, unique regard for the law. Meanwhile, certain swaths of the web-using left* have tagged McGreevey as a good guy. Educating the gay community is expensive, time-consuming work, and talking sense into the lefty blogosphere is a theoretical proposition, so why would the HRC or anyone else waste time on this, especially in an election year? In other words, “McGreevey who?”
I don’t even mind the political calculus. That I understand. But this guy’s going to make more money than Lily Tomlin this year, no matter who does more good for homosexuals and humanity in general. I don’t know how to square that with a just and loving God.
* These are the people who think anything written on NRO is ipso facto batsh*t crazy, that Martin Peretz is Mata Hari sans boobies, and aren’t nearly as much fun at parties as they like to think.
Now this guy is funny! Sounds like a well-educated GayPatriot reader to me!
