He Does More For Gay Rights By Passing For Straight.
Tucker Carlson's (probably) illegal impersonation of Keith Olbermann in an email exchange showed us a side of Carlson that we all knew existed but didn't dwell on very much these last few years: he's really a bitchy queen in a bow tie. But the universe is filled with much more colorful bitchy queens trying desperately to look straight. And in the final analysis, it's the over-the-top macho maybes who look ridiculous in their homophobic scenarios that push straights to have compassion for gays: "Poor man, he tries sooo hard!"
What tipped the scales in the Olbermann impersonation was his admission:
"Could you resist?" Carlson said. "It was just too funny. The flesh is weak."
