"I said go get milk and BOLOGNA!" 

While I was away you all went and had yourself a nice little political scandal in New Jersey. Frankly I could care less, but this comment by Margaret at Our House strikes me as dead-on.

In that light "I'm gay," sounds like a request for public sympathy and clemency for his actions from a legal standpoint. The "gay defense" here is about as compelling as the "twinkie defense" was and nobody, gay or straight should buy it.

(Line in title from a little seen play called "The Last Days of Harvey Milk", not to be confused with that Jay Mohr thing.)
