Liberal spokesman and author David Corn has a site that's been deluged today around his article, "The List" which begins:

There's a list going around. Those disseminating it call it "The List." It's a roster of top-level Republican congressional aides who are gay.
This may well be the reverse Monica of the new century; the first time that a remote hand-job has had a hand, so to speak, in bringing down a government.

At the same time, the rich and full aroma of deep irony revolves around what can only be seen as a Democratic initiated and driven effort to purge Congress at all levels of homosexuals because they are, well, Republicans or work for same. Coming from a party that is first and foremost about advancing gay and lesbian rights on all fronts, it seems especially shameful that -- to settle all their old scores and gripes and grievances -- they are going willing to sacrifice the lives, careers and reputations of their fellow Americans on the altar of their derangement.

It would be obvious and popular to the point to the Hypocrisy! of it all in this case, but that's the cheap and easy way out. It really is more despicable and viscous than that. Corn pretty much sums up this deeply disturbed mindset in his article when he writes:

I have a copy. I'm not going to publish it. For one, I don't know for a fact that the men on the list are gay. And generally I don't fancy outing people--though I have not objected when others have outed gay Republicans, who, after all, work for a party that tries to limit the rights of gays and lesbians and that welcomes the support of those who demonize same-sexers.
You'd be hard pressed to find a statement that more sums up the proposition that "The end justifies the means." Corn's subtext is, of course, 'I'm not going to publish it, because I don't have to. Now that you folks in the media know there's a list, you can go and find it from someone less moral than I am. Please write or call if you'd like a pointer. Strictly on the QT, off-the-record, and very hush-hush.' A morally aware person with a respect for the privacy of a fellow human being's sexuality would not write about such a list at all. Case closed. But I don't look for any real moral awareness to rise from the reactionary spear carrieers of the party of "post-modern moral certitude and relativistic rectitude." It's just another example of the extremes of the Democratic Party going after the blood of the moderates, Democrat or Republican, straight or, in this instance, gay.

It would seem that if you can't win an election on the issues, you win it on outing the gay members of the opposite party. Color me not surprised. Politics as pure perversion. If the moderates of this country have come to believe that the Republicans are "capable of anything," just wait until they get a load of what the New! Improved! and Even More Degenerate Democrats can do.

NOTE: I must confess that I did not coin the term "Masturgate." This crime against the English language was perpetrated by the infamous Roger L. Simon who tells me to note this factoid because, to him, it is a matter of "pride of authorship."

UPDATE: File under Two Minds with but a Single Thought. From the comments:
Mr. Simon will have to show he coined "Masturgate" before October 1. That's when I included it in a post on my blog, which I cross-posted to Daily Kos.

Such contempt for homosexuals, identical to their contempt for blacks; for these leftist homophobes are proclaiming that if you are a homosexual who thinks there are more important issues than redefining marriage, you are a bad person. No similar demand is made of "normal" people, who are permitted to join this or that party based upon a hierarchy of values.

Bonus style points for quoting James Ellroy.

Although shy in such exalted commenting company, I feel I must point out another truly bizarre double standard of the leftists castigating Foley et al. They're on the case not only for the actual or attempted abuse of minors but because somehow the parents of these boys weren't allowed to check off on the relationship.

But how is this different for girls the same age, who any good leftist will insist have a "right" to get an birth control or an abortion without parental knowledge or consent? They consider it a near hanging offense that anyone knew about and ignored TEXT MESSAGES to teen boys while approving of Planned Parenthood's activities, which undoubtedly sometimes conceal statutory rape of teen girls?

Hierarchy of values indeed.

After the Aunt Jamima/Uncle Tom racist crap, should we really be suprized?

At one time, this was the party of slavery. Why shouldn't we expect them to be morally shifty when their pet sacred cows are getting tipped? Same party, different sacred cows.

What a Cornhole.

I never liked that David Corn to begin with. He's got a sleazy look about him. And what happened to his lips -- the man has no lips.

I've sent him a link to www.cox2008.com/video so he can see what a real moral man looks like. John Cox is running for the GOP presidential nomination and he's running as a real conservative who's not playing by the liberal-left's rules. We need more conservatives like that.

Corn's got zero credibility after making an ass of himself over Plamegate. He really can't be taken seriously. On the guy you're talking about, Cox, he ought to cause a stir if he can get a big enough following in Iowa. A tax on consumption rather than income, comprehensive immigration reform...seems like there's alot to like about him--now if the donors and party bigwigs feel the same way...

If the Dems turn out to be responsible for this brouhaha, they have set the Gay Movement back by at least a dozen years. They've given renewed impetus to the gay=pedophile belief that had almost gone away.

Just sayin'.

I think gay 'activists' did that on their own. The Dems just closed the deal.
