In news that is sure to come as a shock to the American people, yahoo.com announced that the Republican Party quietly endorsed singer, actor, and “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken:
I’m gobsmacked. First, I didn’t even know Mr. Aiken was running for office. Second, Mr. Aiken is an out-of-the-closet gay man with a child by a woman he is not married to. He’s an unlikely candidate to receive the endorsement of conservatives. And third, the GOP quietly endorsed Todd Akin, too. How could the Grand Old Party justify endorsing two radically different men?
