Normally I would not waste space on a story about gay politicians. But further down there is a story where Lindsey Graham is championing the idea that the US should attack and crush Iran on Israel's behalf because Israel cannot handle the job themselves.
Now it is no secret that Graham is a recipient of pro-Israel pack money, at least $65,000 so far.
But it is also no secret that Israel seeks out gay politicians, even plants "Hney traps" on them, in order to control them. As just one example, New Jersey Governor McGreevey was forced to resign when his gay affair with an Israeli, Golan Cipel. Cipel used to work at the Israeli consulate in New York City (the radioactive one) and is a suspected Mossad agent. Prior to being outed for their affair, McGreevey had placed Cipel in charge of New Jersey's own Homeland Security efforts.
So, if Lindsey Graham is indeed gay, and if Israel has compromised him the way that they compromised McGreevey (given Lindsey's anti-gay voting record), then it may be that Lindsey is willing to send your children off to be killed and crippled in a war with Iran just to stay in the closet.
And that is a shitty reason to lose your kid.
Personally I think it is time for all the nasty little secrets of our politicians to be exposed, not out of vengeance, not out of prurient interest, but simply to remove the means for them to be blackmailed into sending our kids off to die in a foreign war for a foreign government.
Perhaps Graham should look here to throw them off the scent!
