POLITICS: Flag on the Play

Apparently, Wolf Blitzer and Wonkette have been spreading the idea that sources in the Bush Administration have been whispering that Richard Clarke is gay. This appears to be a pretty low-profile inside-the-Beltway thing, and it's not clear who in DC this is supposed to influence. But I'll agree with Mark Kleiman that this sort of thing really has no place in this sort of debate, any more than does Bob Novak implying that he knows that Clarke is a racist. The Democrats' whole passive-agressive, we-attack-and-then-complain-when-you-fight-back thing may drive me nuts, but there are some times when people on the Right really go overboard. This looks like one of them.

I give you enough crap when I don't agree with you.

So I've got to give you kudos when I do agree.

Finally, some fair and balanced blogging!

Yes and no. I'm actually somewhat skeptical that there's any evidence that this is coming from the White House, as opposed to being just typical DC gossip. But if there is anybody in the Administration pushing this, they should stop.

So far the only people keeping this crap alive are left-wingers. Doesn't someone who represents the GOP establishment have to make this kind of an accusation before it gets linked to Bush and Rove? Wait... of course not. What the hell was I thinking?
