Conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks, who is not gay:
You know, all three of us spend a lot of time covering politicians and they’re all emotional freaks. They’re guaranteed to invade your personal space, touch you. I sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time.
Conservative The Atlantic columnist Andrew Sullivan, who is gay:
Mercifully, I avoid dinners with Republican senators. It’s usually far too gay a scene for me.
