Via Glenn, I chance upon Charlie Spiering’s great round-up of conservative reaction to Ken Mehlman’s coming out:
Ken Mehlman is gay? Most right-leaning political junkies probably responded by asking, ‘Who is Ken Mehlman?’ or ‘Yeah, but who cares?’
Conservative bloggers either ignored the topic or pointed out that conservatives aren’t necessarily surprised or outraged by the news.
“I had absolutely no idea Ken Mehlman was gay, or existed,” wrote the Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher in response to the New York Times piece that marveled at the “muted reaction” of Republicans to the announcement.
The story has all but disappeared from Memeorandum. I think I e-mailed someone telling her that I didn’t think this story would stay in the headlines past the Sunday (i.e., today’s) TV talk shows. Seems I may have been onto something.
Guess this just confirms the notion that many of the leading opinion makers on the right are indifferent to an individual’s sexuality.
