Frank Rich: It isn't just hypocrisy; it's pathology

Frank Rich has taken aim at GOP hypocrisy regarding gays in his column in the Sunday New York Times:

The split between the Republicans' outward homophobia and inner gayness isn't just hypocrisy; it's pathology. Take the bizarre case of Karl Rove. Every one of his Bush campaigns has been marked by a dirty dealing of the gay card, dating back to the lesbian whispers that pursued Ann Richards when Bush ousted her as Texas governor in 1994. Yet we now learn from "The Architect," the recent book by the Texas journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater, that Rove's own (and beloved) adoptive father, Louis Rove, was openly gay in the years before his death in 2004. This will be a future case study for psychiatric clinicians as well as historians.

I just cannot wait to be rid of these horrible, horrible people. What they've done in their quest for power is beyond comprehension. They have no conscience, they have no scruples, they have no soul and I hope in November many of them have no job.
