Seems that I was right when I wrote that many of Ken Mehlman’s “former White House and GOP colleagues have been contacting him privately to offer their support.” Well, we don’t quite yet have evidence that many have done this, we do know that at least the most important member of the Administration has. From Mehlman’s interview with Politico:
Q. Have you talked to President Bush about this?
A. Yes, I talked to him and he was incredibly supportive.
Q. Was it this year?
Q. How widely known was this before?
A. It was not known by anybody. It was known by me. That’s it.
George W. Bush? Supportive?? But, I was told he was a demon who hated gay people!
(FYI, this is not the “next post” I mentioned in my preceding post. I was working on that one when I discovered this interview.)
