The only thing this post has to do with sexual health is that every American should thank their lucky stars that America’s first openly, honestly, gay politician — Barney Frank — has been one of the leading voices through the current fiscal crisis. Barney Frank understands these issues like few other people in Congress and even many people on Wall Street. Barney Frank is brilliant, but don’t take my word, people like former Republican Majority Leader Tom “the Hammer” Delay say he gets these issues and is smart. Many other Republicans have said the same thing. With Sarah Palin and Joe Biden agreeing that same-sex couples in America should have rights to civil unions in their debate, gay rights is making huge steps forward in spite of far-right social conservatives who would deny these citizens their rights.
But, as usual, there is blow-hard Bill O’Reilly using his self-hating, inferiority complex, to channel his rage into faux-populism on Fixed News. O’Reilly and Fixed News only keep their viewers in the dark on the reality of governing, and in true O’Reilly fashion, he questions Barney Frank’s "manliness" while not understanding that Frank is twice the man O’Reilly will ever be.
