    How come Republican Senators seem, on average, much more sane than their peers in the house ?

    Gotta say it – rumors about him being gay are very widespread here in Illinois and his ex wife has done nothing to quash that. His opposition to the repeal of DADT and DOMA may have been weighing on him at the time of his stroke. Can’t call it cause and effect – he probably had an unlucky clot. But still. Being a gay Republican in his position wouldn’t be an easy life.

    Many thanks, Phoenix Justice, for your kind response. As a European, I find much of the anti-LGBT animus in US politics incomprehensible.
