I think this is really funny because he may end up being the poster child for gay denial. From what I've been reading, his voting record on rights in general, but most importantly on gay rights, has been so extreme, almost like a smoke screen. You know, the belief that if you throw enough chafe up into the air you will be invisible on everyone's radar screen. Of course then you end up sitting in a cloud so thick it's visible to the naked eye, which is kind of what Mr. Schock has done. TMZ reports he's been seen hitting the bars in DC, which is bad for the Illinois Senator - he evidently hasn't realized there is nothing more powerful then gaydar. Every time he gets within several hundred feet of a bar his presence will be known. He will become more then just a blip on the screen. And of course he will need to keep denying the truth, over and over again.

What else can he do. If his overzealous anti-gay voting record is the result of an uber-conservative's denial of his own sexual orientation, what does that say of him as a human being. He will shit on anybody and everybody because all will be viewed as threats. Of course, he can always come to his senses, quit politics, and become a personal trainer.
