That’™s what The Nation is saying the Ohio Republican Party is doing implying Democratic candidate for Governor, ordained and married Methodist Minister Ted Strickland is gay. (Strickland deserves your support in his attempt to topple the vote rigging Ken Blackwell.) Oh, they may be right that this is the sleaziest Republican campaign trash, but I just don’™t know how they figure it out given all the sleazy stuff that has come out of the Republican Party over the last ten years or so. That’™s like picking the sleaziest porn star, the wackiest Republican talking head, the best Lieberman kiss or hug. . . all futile and worthless attempts.

Andrew Sullivan says this is par for the course for the Rovian Republicans, and he is right for once. Sleaziest, though? Come on. . . we’™ll find something just as sleazy coming from the Republicans next week is my bet.
