My, "Jeff Gannon" has a purdy mouth...

I think that the Bush Administration now has its patsy to pin Valerie Plamegate on. It's Jim Guckert, more commonly known as "Jeff Gannon."

Now, self-hating gays in the service of the Radical Right is nothing new. J. Edgar Hoover, Roy Cohn, and Terry Dolan were all gay and in the closet. Even "Tailgunner Joe" McCarthy has been thought to be a"tailgunner" in his day. Many of the people who have been the most vocal in condemning homosexuality have wound up either coming out of the closet or being outed in their lifetime or being found out as gay after their deaths. Cohn and Dolan, if you remember, both died in the first wave of AIDS deaths.

I have always thought that the Valerie Plame revelations came from someone very high up in the George W. Bush Administration. However, now that "Jeff Gannon" has been uncovered, complete with his very amusing double life, Team Dubya will now have a plausible "loose cannon" to palm the revelation of Plame on.

Anyway, for your Schadenfreude pleasure, here's some "Jeff Gannon" links.
