The Misery of Duke

Howie Klein has a good roundup of Duke Cunningham's shenanigans, including a link to a site that lets you listen to MP3s of the Dukester in all his wingnut glory:
Mr. Cunningham, who underwent prostate surgery in August, compared prostate cancer treatment to gay anal sex before the above-mentioned group of elderly cancer patients at Alvarado Hospital. Cunningham said no man would enjoy prostate cancer treatment “unless he’s Barney Frank.”
But Howie also points us to the Washington Blade, who now claim that the Dukester is yet another self-loathing GOP closet queen. Oh please. This cliche is growing a bit threadbare, don't you think?

(hat tip Johnny Wendall)

Update:: Okay, let me spell it out. It's not the story that's a cliche, it's the being a self-loathing GOP closet queen that's cliche. I thought that would be obvious from the many, many posts I have done on the topic of hyporcritical, repressed Republicans, but I guess I need to be more vigilant about ambiguity these days.
