No doubt they'll have a lot to talk about. Like what not to wear to a joint session of Congress.

Sherry Vine goes after Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) , former Senator Larry Craig, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) and other allegedly and non-allegedly closeted politicians in her latest Gaga extravaganza.

Gay (but celibate) nominee Rev. Jeffrey John is probably out of the running to become Bishop of Southwark in South London.
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council is praising Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii for vetoing civil unions. BTW, he's on the record calling for homosexuality to be criminalized and for gays to be deported from the United States.
LeBron James branded a "cocksucker"—in a bad way—by Gawker.

Gay men seeking asylum in the U.K. should be "free to enjoy themselves going to Kylie concerts and drinking exotically coloured cocktails." Nice thought, but probably not the main reason they fear returning to their home countries.
The Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor gay-themed film I Love You, Phillip Morris was screened at The Budapest Gay Pride Festival on July 4. (Anyone see it?)
The California governor race is all tied up. Which is good news and bad news for both Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman.
Gay activist Peter Rosenstein endorses D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray in the Washington, D.C., mayoral race. He'd previously worked as an advisor to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, but "it's another sign that many longtime local Democratic and civic activists are coalescing around Gray because of concerns about Fenty's personality and governing style."
A supplements supplement.
Over the weekend, Gawker posted a photo of Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) at Tuesday's White House picnic that they said was "jamming up the gay staff listserve."
The photo quickly went viral.
More interesting than the photo, now, is Schock's reaction to the fact that people said it made him look gay.
Writes Schock in a Tweet: "Never thought a pic of me w/ my shirt on would go viral. Learned my lesson and burned the belt."
Wow. Such a dramatic way to deal with one's shame.

The power of the gay vote: "Gay rights leaders, many of whom are celebrating at Capital Pride events this weekend, said their immediate focus will be the mayor's race between incumbent Adrian M. Fenty and Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray, two Democrats who played pivotal role in approving same-sex marriage and who marched in Saturday's parade. In what's expected to be a tight mayoral contest, whoever succeeds in locking in the support of the gay and lesbian community may have the advantage on primary day."

Time magazine piece on Disney's Gay Days: "A former Disney employee who was at the park on June 5 told me that every year, Disney issues refunds or free next-day tickets to angry moms and dads who don't want their kids exposed to gay couples or gay-themed shirts. Some families don't get past Main Street U.S.A. before turning around and taking the monorail back to the parking lots."
Details profiles freshman GOP Congressman and "confirmed-bachelor" Aaron Schock. You remember, the freshman with the abs.
"Schock's old-school conservatism has helped him make fast friends among the ideologues of the House Republican Caucus, which is led by people like Cantor (called 'Mr. No' by Democrats for his obstructionism). Schock is ardently opposed to abortion and gay marriage—and he's got the requisite scorn for Big Government...Right now, though, Schock's most immediate concern is the toll Capitol life is taking on him—not emotionally or mentally but physically. Afraid of the congressional 'freshman 15,' he says as we sit down for lunch, he tries to hit the House members' gym every morning. And although his six-pack abs were recently the talk of Capitol Hill after TMZ published a now-infamous picture of him in a swimsuit, he's worried; his workouts are often impeded by shoptalk and subpar equipment ('The House gym is needy,' he says). It's not lost on him that his middle-aged colleagues on the elliptical trainers were young once too. 'I used to be able to eat and drink whatever I wanted,' he says as he deliberates over whether to order a Coke or a Diet Coke with his cheeseburger and fries."
More: "Schock is hoping his romantic prospects will improve too, once he settles in. He's the only one of his siblings not married with children, and is similarly an outlier among his friends. 'I had a group of five or six guys, and we hung out and traveled—ski trips and stuff,' he says. 'They slowly got picked off—married, married, married.' His pals try not to dog him about his love life. 'I think he's got enough pressure as it is,' says Shea Ledford, a concrete worker who's been Schock's good friend since high school. Indeed, there's been enough speculation about Schock's confirmed-bachelor status that, as far back as 2004, a Chicago newspaper asked him whether he was gay (his response: 'No . . . I'm not.').
Of course, that's the same answer Charlie Crist gave...
