8/31    Co-sponsor of the Federal Marriage Amendment is forced to resign after
        allegations surface that he
        \_ He just wanted a little federal legislation to help him stay in the
           \_ Feel that conservative compassion!
        \_ "In 2000, the Virginian-Pilot said of Schrock that he favored ending
            the Clinton administration's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy on
            gays in the military. He supported asking enlistees whether they
            have had homosexual experiences in an effort to try to keep gays
            from serving.i"
           "You're in the showers with them, you're in the bunk room with them,
            you're in staterooms with them," Schrock told the Virginian-Pilot.
           "You just hope no harm would come by folks who are of that
            persuasion It's a discipline thing."
        \_ Since when are allegations worth anything?  How would you respond if
           Drudge made the allegations?
           \_ Well, since he dropped out of the race over some allegations
              made on a gay activist website, I'd say these allegations
              probably hold water.
        \_ What if he genuinely thinks being gay is wrong (e.g. he thinks it's
           a sickness from which he suffers)?  Then he is being consistent when
           he supported anti-gay decisions.  A drug addict can think that drug
           is bad, and can support rehabilitation programs, for example.
           \_ It may be logically consistant, but it certainly is ironic and
              adds to some people's (myself included) suspicion that a lot of
              anti-gay political posturing is really about self-loathing
           \_ I'm sure the feeling is mutual.
              conservatives in the closet.

        \_ Warning, strong libUral slant. I mean, come on:
           "We can explain how Republicans exploit frames, phrases, and fears
            to trick Americans into supporting policies (such as the "war on
            terror" and repeal of the "death tax") that damage the national
            interest for partisan advantage.

        \_ This article is really out to lunch.  The smears of Obama are
           everywhere.  There are whole websites devoted to proving

2/19    Why are there so many gay people on the Oxygen Channel? O!
        \_ Because gay (homosexual male) people like the same things as
           straight women?
           \_ No, because many straight women think all gay people are
              cute and neutered like the guys in Will and Grace (who you

8/31    This is why Edwards can't get elected:
        In a recent speech, John Edwards told Americans to sacrifice their
        inefficient cars, and specifically, to give up their SUVs. But the
        presidential hopeful is driven around in a Cadillac SRX Crossover,

Legislator Ends Bid for 3rd Term Schrock Cites Unspecified Allegations Questioning His Ability to Serve By Michael D Shear and Chris L Jenkins Washington Post Staff Writers Tuesday, August 31, 2004; In a statement, Schrock, 63, did not address the nature of the allegations, but he said they "will not allow my campaign to focus on the real issues facing our nation and region." His chief of staff, Tom Gordy, refused any further comment last night. The allegations will not allow "my campaign to focus on the real issues," said Rep. With him are former governor James Gilmore and Steve Case. News Alert Schrock's announcement came after a gay activist claimed on a Web site on Aug. Michael Rogers said his claims about Schrock were motivated by anger over what he said was the hypocrisy of the congressman's opposition to gay rights while leading a gay life. He said the purpose of his Web site is to make public the names of lawmakers and other politicians who engage in such hypocrisy. Rogers said on his Web site that Schrock had been recorded several years ago using a telephone service on which men place ads to arrange liaisons with other men. Rogers posted an audio link of an unidentified man placing an ad. Rogers said the man is Schrock, who is married and has a child. The accusation by Rogers had circulated widely among Republicans in the state during the past 10 days and spurred rounds of talks among members of Congress, House leaders and local party leaders. It was all rumors and conjecture," said one Republican familiar with the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity. Last week, Gordy called Rogers's accusations "unsubstantiated rumors" and insisted that Schrock would stand for reelection as planned. But party leaders in the district began planning a meeting in case they needed to review their nomination. The 2nd District Republican Party is scheduled to meet tonight to select a new nominee. Mark L McKinney, chairman of the Virginia Beach Republican Committee, said he had not talked directly to Schrock. "It's a shame that he had to resign because of a Web site that is trying to push a point of view . I have to believe that this was the reason why he stepped down." Schrock's announcement came on the first night of the Republican National Convention in New York. Virginia's top Republicans publicly ignored the sexual allegations and offered kind words about Schrock's service in Congress. Schrock, a Navy veteran of the Vietnam War, was elected in 2000 to represent Virginia's 2nd District, a conservative part of the state that includes Virginia Beach, parts of Norfolk and Hampton and Virginia's Eastern Shore. The area is home to many military bases and a large number of active-duty service people and veterans.
