Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Serious Question

It is long been "known" that Lindsay Graham is currently America's foremost closeted gay person.  He's a politician from South Carolina.  Fine, we get it.

But now he's joined on to David Vitter's Screw My Congressional Staff bill.  This bill seeks to... hell if I know, basically it kicks congressional staffers into the exchanges and doesn't give them subsidies when they do.

It's literally an attempt to kick all the Hill staffers in the nuts.  And I have no idea why it's popular among Republican congressfolks.

But here's what I think is interesting, and here is my question:

Why would a guy who asks prostitutes to diaper him and America's foremost closeted gay person go out of their way to piss off the people who know their deepest personal secrets?
