I’m not exactly sure what Matt Naugle’s problem is, but he seems unable to resist implying that Ted Strickland is gay, and prefers younger men. Let’s not forget the innuendos about Strickland’s vacation with a staffer, and that his wife may not even live with him. Of course, all of these “allegations” are implied rather than said directly, and all done without any shred of evidence. Not that it matters in the final analysis – I couldn’t care less if we had a gay governor.

One might think that Naugle does this to attempt to discredit Strickland with the large number of homophobic voters in Ohio. Given that the election is over, and it will be a number of years before Strickland is up for re-election, this theory doesn’t seem entirely logical, so let me offer another.

Matt Naugle loves “teh gay sexors.” He has a secret longing to have a passionate, hot, sweaty, manlove session with our current governor. Unfortunately for Matt, he runs in a circle that frowns quite heavily on “teh gays”, so he pushes this secret desire down deep; he tries to shut it out. However, if I learned anything from The Sopranos finale, we are who we are, and you can’t really change that. So while Naugle suppresses his desire, it works its way to the surface in other, perhaps less obvious ways. Like obsessing over the hunk of man-meat currently living at the Governor’s Mansion down in Bexley. In order to fulfill the longing for that which cannot, and will not, happen, his fantasies become real by writing obsessively, compulsively, endlessly, about implying Strickland is gay. In this particular case, he’s cast the young men in Buckeye Boys State in the role he wishes he had in his fantasy.

At this point, I’m not really sure what else it could be.
