    This is already running on 2 other threads here.

    But yeah, great news, for him to be officially out at last. We all knew it, he's living with a partner, lots of photos of them together.

    Now everyone knows it, and let the right-wingers and fundamentalists spout, and boycott him, and get all hysterical. We have some RJers right here who will be chiming in against him shortly, be assured.

    Yah know, I tried to be respectful of your post about this same news item about Cooper, on another thread you started, and thanked you for posting it. And I wasn't referring to you in my post you quoted above.

    But I kinda knew your right-wing political hatred of me couldn't long contain itself, you'd eventually attack me as usual, no matter what I posted. BTW, I also heard about the bashing you gave me at the Phoenix get together. Yeah, guys told me about it. What a coward to trash me behind my back, when I wasn't there to defend myself.

    You're as bad as southbeach and some of the other right-wing gay haters here, just with a little more polish. I thought you might have some redeeming features, but obviously I was wrong. icon_sad.gif

    I hate to break it to you, but you were hardly a topic of conversation at the Phoenix meet up...we weren't that desperate for conversation. The only time you even came up was when Paul mentioned he had met you and knows you. I am sure Paul will confirm that I didn't say anything whatsoever disrespectful about you. I'm not even sure anyone else at the dinner even knows who you are, as most were not even forum posters.

    I think he would have done more good, if he had come out earlier, but better late than never. I'll be interested to see how the media plays it and how he handles it in the future.

    CuriousJockAZ saidThe only time you even came up [at Phoenix] was when Paul mentioned he had met you and knows you.

    Not what I heard. You said how you like to disrupt threads, despite having few real principles or values, not really a right-winger at all, you just like to cause trouble, sit back and laugh. and how I was one of your principal targets. Believe me, I got a very interesting report. Were you drinking a little too much, perhaps, that you don't remember well?

    Or maybe it was the others who drank too much. Hard to really know, since I wasn't there, just heard this second-hand. Perhaps you can set the record straight.

    I already can't wait for the Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper New Year's Eve special this year. I am sensing that Kathy will have some new material.

    No actually you're lying through your teeth. That isn't anything I would say - period. It's comical that you'd actually think we had nothing better to talk about than YOU -- get over yourself. I may have said something like I'm not as "Right wing" as many here think I am, because that's the truth. I cannot help it if you're delusional and think I'm some right wing plant here to disrupt the site. I find that amusing, but it's not even logical.

    Now, rather than let you make this thread about YOU, let's get back to Anderson Cooper icon_wink.gif

    OK enough about me. Let's talk about you, starting with what do you think about me?

    How laughable, since it was YOU who dragged my name into this.

    "I may have said something like I'm not as "Right wing" as many here think I am, because that's the truth. I cannot help it if you're delusional and think I'm some right wing plant here to disrupt the site."

    Exactly what was reported to me, thank you. And I don't think you're a right-wing plant. You're your own plant, who delights in causing trouble, for your own jollies, as you told those guys in Phoenix.

    I don't know which is worse: a right-winger who disrupts a gay site based on his political beliefs. Or a guy who disrupts a gay site just to amuse himself, for selfish entertainment as you said in Phoenix, having little or none of the political beliefs he spouts online.

    Lots of guys thought he was already out. I mean, I knew he was suspected of being gay for awhile but he doesn't seem 'gay', or at least he's not the stereotype.....

    So why have people suspected he was gay for so long? Always wondered that.

    He was so afraid to admit it.
