The altogether unwelcome gayness of former Republican shill Ken "Bud" Mehlman is allegedly big news this week. Members of the gay community (including famous ex-straights like David Brock) are either offering Ken advice on how to handle the Big Reveal, or stifling their yawns/homicidal impulses. Gee, Ken, great to see you out, thanks for all the gay-bashing!
But as Stephen Colbert's Wikiality (The Truthiness Encyclopedia) suggested long ago, Mehlman's orientation was the worst-kept secret in Washington's closets. Note: The censored transcript of the Bill Maher/Larry King interview on the Wikiality page is not parody. That interview really took place; video after the break.
