I’m not an Ann Coulter fan. I don’t dislike her, but I don’t watch her on TV, read her articles or books, or follow her career moves. She’s just a non-entity for me, kinda like Unitarianism. I found these remarks about Bill Clinton interesting, though. She thinks he might have some level of latent homosexuality.
Now, her reasoning (such as we can discern from the dialogue) isn’t great, and I’m wholly unconvinced that Clinton is at all gay, but she’s onto something when she talks about his “bathhouse” ways. If he’s as promiscuous as he appears to be, he shares something with the gay culture: intense selfishness that manifests itself in a sexual way. It’s also a type of self-obsession that can lead a heterosexual to try homosexuality. Pete Townsend comes to mind, and I’m also reminded of the rumors about Mick Jagger’s experiment with homosexuality. I don’t think Townsend and Jagger are gay, but when you spend 20 years experimenting with every sort of depravity, it gets old after awhile, so you’re more inclined to try something else.Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
