Republican Congressmen are SO HOT

As a Democrat I must admit to having been disappointed when the Republicans recaptured control of the House in 2010.  But as a gay man, wow, what an unexpected boon.  First, there was Chris Lee's shirtless bicep-flexing photo emailed to a Craig's List contact.  (No debate about who wins that guns v. butter debate.)  And now, we have Aaron Schock's shirtless spread in my respectable porn Men's Health (including the money shot cover picture). To repeat, wow.  If he can shred Medicare like he can shred his abs those geezers had better watch out. 

But enough about policy.  On a more personal note, my I'm-a-gay-man-so-I-can't-control-my-libido libido is like, at code red (or it would be, if we were still using color-coded levels).  So thanks, you pill button-popping GOPers.  Who knew you'd be so gay-positive in places other than airport bathrooms?  Still, this revelation has caused me some wistfulness.  If only I had known that Republican congressmen are so hot, and so willing to bare it all most of it, and, no less, in a magazine recognized as having a substantial gay male readership (and here and (humorously) here).  So, a resolution.  I will never attend another White Party weekend without checking out the Log Cabin hospitality booth and tea dance.  God only knows what those people are doing inside that surprisingly big tent of theirs.

Hmmmm..... Very interesting, Bill. But three points may well undermine your argument:

1. Not so sure Chris Lee is hot.
2. Not so sure Aaron Schock is straight.
3. I've come across one or two (ok, I'm being coy: actually many, many more) hot democrats in my life...

(This is, of course, all in the jocular... But you've heard the old joke: every joke is 20% a joke...) Hope you're well Bill.

Maybe Lee didn't know that the "Craig" of "Craig's List" wasn't Larry, and so thought he'd be safe sending that photo.
