Hillary Clinton might be about to run for office, so that means rumors of her husband cheating are reappearing right on schedule. The latest scuttlebutt comes courtesy of a new book about Secret Service agents called The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents. In it, author Ronald Kessler claims Bill Clinton has a “buxom blond mistress” who visits the former president so frequently at his Chappaqua, New York, home — when Hillary’s not around, of course — that the agents call her “Energizer.” Says Page Six: Keep reading »
Conservative shock jock Glenn Beck is very angry about a lot of things. One in particular? Politicians who opposed marriage equality before they supported it — not because Beck himself actually cares about marriage equality, mind you — he just thinks these politicians are hypocrites. And the biggest hypocrite of them all is Hillary Clinton, of whom Beck said:
“I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular. “
To what do we owe this sort of graphic visual image? Beck wasn’t relying on his own tawdry imagination, but instead a decades-old rumor from political consultant Dick Morris. The disgraced Morris started as a friend of the Clintons and after a falling-out (including a prostitution scandal), he is now one of the Clintons’ biggest adversaries. Morris is responsible for pretty much flat-out saying that Hillary Clinton is a lesbian, which, as a former close friend, people assumed he would know.
I don’t care what sexual orientation Hillary Clinton is (though I would love an LGBT president in the future for sure). I find it pretty depressing that one rumor has gotten loads of replay over the years, resurfacing almost always in ultra-right-wing media but also occasionally in liberal LGBTQ ones. I did a little search, digging into only the last decade, and came up with quite a bit of history for the Hillary Clinton lesbian rumors…

“I hope we have a woman president in my lifetime, and I think it would be a good thing for the world as well as for America. But I do not know if she’s going to run, and there is no such thing as a sure thing in politics. … If that’s what she wants to do, I will support her. But if she decides for whatever reason she doesn’t, I will support that.”
– Former President Bill Clinton spoke in China this weekend and made his wishes clear in his wife’s “will-she-or-won’t-she?” game. Because you know when he says he wants the woman president, he isn’t talking about Sarah Palin … or Kirsten Gillibrand … or Michele Bachmann … or Liz Cheney … or anyone other than his wife.

Man, do I love a good Bill. Murray, Cosby, Clinton, Nye, Gates… I’ll take ‘em all. Bills are just the best! Here are two of them (Clinton and Gates, to be specific) captured in the form of a genuine @billclinton selfie. This looks just like a selfie my dad would take. Read: very blurry. Dads! They have a real hard time with phone cameras. Right, Chelsea? [Twitter]
Did you forget Gennifer Flowers existed? Us, too. But here she is in the UK’s Daily Mail, for some reason. In the exclusive interview with Bill Clinton’s former mistress, she claims that the president would have stayed with her had his daughter Chelsea not been born and he reportedly told Flowers that Hillary Clinton is “bisexual,” but he didn’t care, and Hillary “had eaten more pussy than he had.” Keep reading »
The Supreme Court is preparing to take up the Defense of Marriage Act—and the very president who signed it is urging justices to strike it down. DOMA came at “a very different time” in US history, writes Bill Clinton in a Washington Post editorial. No state recognized same-sex marriage, and just 81 of 535 members of Congress opposed the measure’s passage. Some senators, Clinton notes, saw the law as a way of preventing a more extreme constitutional amendment against gay marriage.
The Supreme Court will examine whether DOMA supports “freedom, equality, and justice above all.” Since signing the measure in 1996, “I have come to believe that DOMA is contrary to those principles and, in fact, incompatible with our Constitution,” Clinton writes. Read more…
