Republi-Porn Hypocrisy

The CPAC a week or so ago was a get together of the frothing-at-the-mouth right set. This year's recipient of their Jean Kirkpatric Academic Freedom award was an ex-Corporal Sanchez, an ex-Marine who alledged that he was persecuted by liberals at Columbia. Besides the award, he got appearances on Hannity and Colmes and O'Reilly, a picture with Michelle Malkin, and some quality time and picture with Ann Coulter, when she wasn't being hugged by Mitch Romney or calling John Edwards a faggot.

The punchline, though, is it turns out that ex-Corporal Sanchez has another identity as gay porn star Rod Majors.

Max Blumenthal has the story here.

He also has a few ruminations on the gap between behavior and rhetoric among those who practice what he calls "the politics of resentment."

Coulter's now-famous "faggot" remark was not an aberration, but rather a symbol of the politics of resentment that propels the conservative movement and its elected Republican surrogates; a reflection of the bigotry conservatives have sought to write into the Constitution through the so-called Federal Marriage Amendment. The ascendant "family values" wing of the right is also responsible for sabotaging legislation allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the armed forces, a maneuver that may now spell the end of Sanchez's career.

As Sanchez marched down the road from the gay sex industry to the conservative movement, he followed in the footsteps of Jeff Gannon, Ted Haggard and many others. Whether Sanchez knew the right was filled with people just like him, something about it must have appealed to him.
