The Sound of the Crowd

I almost had a witty pop culture reference

… to make about this AmericaBlog entry, but I couldn’t think of an entire one. All I know is, it’s: Something something “West End Girls” something. Anyway, here we have Mayor West of Spokane wringing his hands over the way he’s been “brutally outed.”

As a Spokane resident wrote:

“The hypocrisy, cynicism and lies upon which Mr. West built his political career harmed homosexuals in our state, and his sexual orientation is thus a legitimate topic for discussion,’ [Mike Kress, vice chairman of the Spokane Human Rights Commission] wrote in an opinion piece in Wednesday’s Spokesman-Review.”

This kept coming to me whenever “conservative” pundits tried to spin the Gannon thing as “outing.’ The “H” word people like Mayor West and Gannon have to worry about with liberals is not homosexuality, it’s hypocrisy.
