Privacy first:

Some folks (including the AFSCME!) are gay-baiting in Kentucky in order to take down Mich McConnell.

I object to that. I also objected to probes into Larry Craig's personal life. Politicians represent their constituents. If the constituents want anti-gay policies enacted and a (secretly) gay politician works to those ends, I don't see any hypocrisy.

Back when outing Larry Craig was a national sport, I got into a heated debate over at Balloon Juice. I thought Craig should be left alone even if he was promoting anti-gay policies - that Idahoans wanted.

For me, privacy is fundamental. I don't like to see it violated by the right (who do it more) or by the left.
