Ken Comes Out

Former RNC chairman and '04 Bush campaign chief Ken Mehlman announced this week that he is gay. It's not the biggest surprise- rumors to that effect have been out there for years, and CNN even drew fire a few years ago for editing out a segment in which Bill Maher mentioned that Mehlman was gay.

I admire him for doing so now, as it was clearly something he's struggled with, and he's pledged to work for same-sex marriage. But it might have been nice for him to do something back when he was in a position to influence the president.

Anyway, now that Mehlman has come out, it's time for Ryan from "The Real World: New Orleans" to do the same. I mean, in last week's episode he literally ran away from a naked woman in order to hide in a closet. The producers somehow resisted the temptation to show him coming out of it.
