Bill Clinton's "latent homosexuality"

I'm sure you've all seen this by now. But I'll post it anyway for the few who may not have.

According to Ann Coulter (Keith Olbermann's "Coultergeist"), Bill Clinton's "rampant promiscuity" is a sign of his latent homosexuality.

I kid you not. She said it on Donny Deutsch's TV show. Here's a transcript:
Deutsch: Off the air, you were talking about Bill Clinton. Is there anything you want to say about Clinton? No?

Coulter: No.

Deutsch: OK. All right. Did you find him attractive? Was that what it was?

Coulter: No!

Deutsch: You don't find him attractive?

Coulter: No. OK, fine, I'll say it on air.

Deutsch: Most women find him attractive.

Coulter: No.

Deutsch: OK, say it on air.

Coulter: I think that sort of rampant promiscuity does show some level of latent homosexuality.

Deutsch: OK, I think you need to say that again. That Bill Clinton, you think on some level, has -- is a latent homosexual, is that what you're saying?

Coulter: Yeah. I mean, not sort of just completely anonymous -- I don't know if you read the Starr report, the rest of us were glued to it, I have many passages memorized. No, there was more plot and dialogue in a porno movie.
Wait - did she just admit to watching porn? The image of Ann Coulter memorizing passages of the Starr Report is just plain creepy. The fact that she knows enough porn to be able to compare and contrast its literary merits to the Starr Report is creepier still.

Tell me again, why do people take her seriously?

In any event she does have some interesting things to say later in the interview:
No. I think anyone with that level of promiscuity where, you know, you — I mean, he didn’t know Monica’s name until their sixth sexual encounter. There is something that is — that is of the bathhouse about that.
Coulter further confuses me:
It’s reminiscent of a bathhouse. It’s just this obsession with your own — with your own essence.
And then she ends (I'd use the word "climax" here, but I graduated high school many many years ago):
Well, there is something narcissistic about homosexuality. Right? Because you’re in love with someone who looks like you. I’m not breaking new territory here, why are you looking at me like that?
Woa - something narcissistic about homosexuality?

Gee, how many gay stereotypes has she used? Gay (presumably gay male) promiscuity, gay bathhouses, gay "obsession" with one's "essence", and finally gay narcissism.

So the guy's a latent homosexual because he got blowjobs from a woman whose name he originally didn't know?

Didn't St Ann also say that he's a rapist who molested the help?

Again, why does anyone take her seriously?

Wait -- I think Ms. Coulter is on to something here. We recently reported a story linking narcissistic behavior with homosexuality: http://carbolicsmokeblog.blogspot.com/2006/05/gay-narcissists-say-same-sex-marriage.html

Israel is locked in a struggle with Hezbollah, Bagdhad (sic?) descends into chaos, Senators Cornyn (R-Texas) and Kyl (R-Arizona) push for extra funding for patrols along our border with Mexico, Pakistan clamins it has the capacity and the intent to increase its nuclear arsenal by an almost exponential level, and Mr. Deutsch indulges us with SPURIOUS, WHOLLY UNFOUNDED, AND UTTERLY FUCKING CYNICAL GAY-BATINING?!?!?


And, while I disagree with the two of yinz on a number of subjects, I've always respected your collective, er, "vibe." But this time I can't help but feel like Ms. Coulter's played you two for suckers. I mean, sure, she's a kind of freak-show kinda diversion, but, dude and dudette - there's some heavy sh*t goin' down, man. It's tempting, I know, but don't let the idionts distract yinz.

scientifically speaking, narcissism is linked to confusion of sexual identity. coulter may be extremely right-wing, but psychiatry supports her.

the bottom line is this -- president clinton abused his position of power as president, as a man, and as elder to his conquests. the question of sexuality is irrelavent but the abuse of power is what needs to be focused upon.

How ancient history can you get? Freudian Psychoanalysis? People would be frightened about the things he said about everyone. Being straight means if you are a female you fell in love with Dad, and male, Mom. How kinky is that? I kind of thinking loving yourself is more palatable.
