Gay blogger Mark Rogers claims that ultra-conservative GOP Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming (where Brokeback Mountain is set) is also gay. Rogers outs gay politicians whom he believes are hypocrites in their policy views and votes.
The WashingtonPost has called Rogers “the most feared man on [the] Hill” because of his accurate track record.
I’ve been struck by Liz Cheney’s sense of entitlement to start her political career by running for the Senate without getting elected to any lower office first.
By contrast, Mike Enzi, the incumbent senator she is trying to oust, was a Wyoming mayor and a member of both the Wyoming House and the Wyoming Senate before moving up to the U. S. Senate.
Wyoming’s other senator, John Barrasso, was appointed to the Senate when Senator Craig Thomas died in 2007. He then won a special election in 2008 and a full term in 2012. But before his appointment to the U. S. Senate, he had served in the Wyoming Senate.
Her unwillingness to serve even briefly at the state level seems awfully presumptuous to me.
