So The New York Times has decided that Ken Mehlman's now-admitted homosexuality isn't news.
Apparently absolutely everyone in journalism knew that Kenny was gay. Maybe even before Kenny knew. Despite the hypocrisy inherent in Kenny's role in a nationally orchestrated Republican campaign against gays in 2004, the punditocracy — in their infinite wisdom — determined back then that his sexual orientation wasn't worth reporting.
(More on their "infinite wisdom": Murkowski's a shoo-in.)
But we digress. Now that Kenny has owned up to being a traitor to the gay community, the media have decided — again — that it's not a story. Are we surprised?
At times like these, it can be tough to embrace the First Amendment rights of these punditizing hypocrites. But we must try.
