He's At Homo With It...Kinda
MSNBC's Chris Matthews tells Ron Reagan, Jr., that he "respects" that he was "a dancer." Translation: "I'm not that comfortable that you're a homosexual, but I'll pretend to be."

I always thought that "I respect you're a dancer" was code for "I want to go down on you ASAP."

I thought he was married. To a girl, and everything.

Reagan mentioned how he values his mariage, yet doesn't feel it gets depreciated by gay marriage at all. So I guess he's married!

Wednesday morning, feeling awful. How? How? I don't get it.

Hmmm, perhaps he's straight. Sorry -- my gaydar didn't even flicker for a moment on him. Perhaps it's off, perhaps Larry Kramer's got a point: (http://www.advocate.com/html/stories/917/917_kramer.asp)

"And just as damning as the sons reputation, of course, because it could not be hidden, was that Ron Reagan Jr. was a ballet dancer. This did not look good and was obviously exceedingly embarrassing to a father who rode so many horses. So off with the tutu and on with a wedding ring. Junior was married off and sent to far-off places in positions of low visibility.

I have gay friends in Hollywood, equally closeted, who knew him and know him and protect him. To know him is to be sworn to some sort of pact of secrecy. What a hideous life Ron Jr. must have led all these years. To be denied a life and to have been so utterly gutless about fighting back. (Well, we know all about that.) While his own mother was gallivanting around with some of the biggest fairies in the world. What hateful parents to have had in the prime of your life, the great communicator of a father out there communicating how much he hated you, and his wife out there going along with this.

I suspect by now Ron Reagan Jr. actually believes he is straight. By now he may very well be. He may well have been all along. He just looked so suspicious, and of course it was this perceived suspicion that, one way or the other, is what caused his father to murder so many of us. Why does history not recognize this monstrous and never-ending history of hatred and the inestimable number of deaths it continues to cause?"

Baby Ron is butt-ugly, so whether or not he's gay doesn't matter to me at all. He's irrelevant. Like Ringo Starr.

Why are liberals so fascinated with interior lives?

Posted by: Cridland at November 3, 2004 10:21 AM

Interior meaning sodomy?
