I like to please readers with well-sourced and unambiguous information, but this is time when I simply can't please readers, because the question has not been conclusively answered. I have NEVER said that MAMZ is conclusively gay. But the "truth about Kos" is that half of the hits to this blog come from people using Google to find out whether MAMZ is gay or not. Like the question of whether MAMZ is presently employed by the CIA, MAMZ himself refuses to answer this simple question, preferring ambiguity.
Remarkably, MAMZ once got a Republican journalist and operative fired by outing him as possibly gay. The Washington Post said at the time,
Online Reporter Quits After Liberals' Expose

The conservative reporter who asked President Bush a loaded question at a news conference last month resigned yesterday after liberal bloggers uncovered his real name and raised questions about his background.
Jeff Gannon, who had been writing for the Web sites Talon News and GOPUSA, is actually James Dale Guckert, 47, and has been linked to online domain addresses with sexually provocative names.
He has been under scrutiny since asking Bush how he could work with Senate Democratic leaders "who seem to have divorced themselves from reality." The information about Gannon was posted on the liberal sites Daily Kos, Atrios and World o' Crap.
Under the headline "A Voice of the New Media: The Voice Goes Silent," Gannon wrote on his personal Web page that because of the attention "I find it is no longer possible to effectively be a reporter for Talon News" and that he is quitting "in consideration of the welfare of me and my family." Gannon added in a brief interview that "my family has been victimized" and that he wanted to "put some separation between Talon News and the White House."
Gannon's resignation highlights the no-holds-barred atmosphere of the Web, which both enabled him to function as a reporter -- his stories appeared on a site founded by Texas Republican activist Bobby Eberle -- and produced a swarm of critics determined to expose him.
I find it remarkably ironic that MAMZ presents himself as gay-neutral in 2010 after being absolutely opposed to being in the presence of gays in 1993, and then ruining the career of a possibly gay GOP journalist by bringing that man's sexuality into question.
Among the domain names registered by Gannon's company several years ago, but never launched, were Hotmilitarystud.com, Militaryescorts.com and Militaryescortsm4m.com, along with Exposejessejackson.com. The bloggers also have linked to a since-withdrawn America Online photo of a man who appears to be Gannon, posing in his underwear, with a screen name bearing the initials "JDG."
It fits a pattern of MAMZ creating a new and profoundly ironic and literally incredible narrative for his life, including rewriting his past, even to the extent of lying about which country he was born in, and often including bold-faced lies, like the assertion that he was "an immigrant to the United States" when he was actually born in Chicago. For people like MAMZ, no lie is too large to be told with a straight face.
I also write about MAMZ's sexuality because the public wants to read about it. Once they're here at this blog, there are obviously many other more important issues about MAMZ that readers can peruse, aside from this CIA-trained homophobic politician's sexuality and his manhood.
A whole book could be written analyzing what MAMZ has said about his sexuality and his once-shaky manhood. I think this is an important issue, since MAMZ wants to "crash the gates" of the Democratic Party and choose the party's leaders. This is in a Party that wins 90% of Blacks' votes in presidential elections, while DailyKos has 3% Black readership and even less Black participation. I think the Party has a right to know something about the blogger whose blog participants were so idiotically pro-John Edwards in 2006 and 2007. Just read the comments to my anti-Edwards blog post at DailyKos for proof of how much these idiots thought nominating John Hunter Reille Edwards would be a good idea!
Does MAMZ hate gays because he is a homophobic heterosexual or because he is a homosexual homophobic? I want an answer to that from this man who proposes to "crash the gates" of the Democratic Party and he has made ambiguous statements that rightfully leave the public wondering about his sexuality and how he feels about gays.
Since MAMZ once drove a possibly gay man out of his employment by outing him, that's plenty of reason to wonder out loud about MAMZ's own sexuality, taken in the context of 1993 letter saying he couldn't stand being around gays. I think that one letter is perhaps the single most interesting and self-revealing thing he has said or written, even compared with all he has said since the period when the CIA trained him while he was starting DailyKos.
As for my own sexuality, I've experimented, but all of my three marriages have been with women.
