UPDATE: Outrage Opens Today, Bound to Disappoint



You may recall that I recently divulged, via Secret Pony Pal, that the movie Outrage opens tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival, and that it contains a "substantiated outing" that will make everybody all giddy.

Well, hang on.

It sounds like it's just going to be the same old stories about the usual suspects:

The current governor of a major U.S. southern state, the campaign manager of a U.S. president, a senior West Coast congressman, a former mayor of New York City, and others are among those outed in Kirby Dick’s “Outrage,” a provocative new documentary debuting tomorrow night at the Tribeca Film Festival. Unseen in its finished form until yesterday, the film is likely to cause waves in political and media circles as word gets out about its subject matter.


OK, so let's translate: that means Charlie Crist, Ken Mehlman, David Dreier, and Ed Koch. This is all old gossip, so unless the film has major new info about these people, this is just the same old rumors. Apparently the info on Crist is hazy at best, just as it has always been. Mostly, I guess, this will cause discomfort to Mehlman, but he's a nobody these days, so who cares?

EDIT: LA Times confirms the above names, plus Shep Smith. ZZZZZ.

On the plus side, I believe the flick also features interviews with Pony Pal™ David, so that's totally fun.

But anyway, it's funny because Crist just married a female, but I wouldn't get your hopes up too high about the film. We'll see.

UPDATE YOU WILL LOVE: Jeff Gannon didn't make it into the movie. "He's on the cutting room floor," says the director.

Blah blah blah blah blah boring same old outy-outs different outy-out day.

I always like to bring Charlie up to my brother and his wife, one-time Florida residents... He gasps and gets all apoplectic. My sister-in-law gets her uber-conservative knickers in a twist.

I know I get through to her however, when I point out Charlie's perfectly sculpted brows.

Damn, I get very upset when a man has better brows than I. And that damned Charlie always does.

Yes we know our Governor is a flamer!

Ken Mehlman, not Steve Schmidt?

I wonder if the impending news is what's making Shep Smith so cranky? He dropped an F-bomb on the air recently and came out against torture. Hard to say which annoys the conservative more.

Steve Schmidt wasn't the campaign manager for a US President.

If they want a great hidden gay governor, they need to check out Texas Governor Rick Perry.
He's a butch top, but then so is Jeff Gannon.

We Floridians know all about Gay Charlie — so you can imagine the under-the-table snickers about his wedding last December, particularly when the invitation stipulated the dress as "black-tie optional." This is a "style" that— like the Governor's marital sex life, we presume — doesn't exist.

So, yes, the "news" about Crist is a total yawn. Speaking for ourselves, we won't be satisfied until somebody seriously outs Karl Rove.

Damn - I was hoping for Miss McConnell.

Wake me in time for the second feature.

This is a double bill, isn't it??

desertwind said...

Maybe this doc is what caused Shep Smith to get a little over-riled the other day?
