From the Blackwell Files

This is hilarious:

Gay-rights activist and talk-radio host Michelangelo Signorile has posted an amusing piece of audio of Ken Blackwell during the Republican National Convention, telling Signorile that homosexuality is a compulsion that can be "restrained," and he's quite confident he would be able to suppress it within himself -- though of course he's never had any sort of problem like that.

"I've never had to make the choice because I've never had the urge to be other than a heterosexual," Blackwell said, "but if in fact I had the urge to be something else I could have in fact suppressed that urge."

Ken Blackwell is one of the candidates for the chair of the RNC. The writer in me wants Mr. Blackwell to win, because he's a juicy kind of guy, as my earlier blog posts on him might demonstrate.

Oh. I almost forgot other statements of his on homosexuality.
