There are few things harder than writing about sex and politics. The only one, perhaps, is writing about sexuality and politics.

That’s why we’re calling special attention to Scott Olin Schmidt’s comments on the Washington sex scandal involving Congressman Mark Foley’s lewd instant message exchanges with teenage Capitol Hill pages. Scott’s observations – as a gay Republican – are smart and solid. So are the comments – posted Friday – by Jeanne Jackson. She and Scott don’t exactly agree but, well, they don’t disagree on the important stuff.

We’re sure you won’t read thoughtful commentary like this anywhere else.

Yesterday Scott reminded us that – so far, anyway – Foley doesn’t appear to have broken any laws. Today, he’s urging gay Republicans to declare their orientation. Both posts are worth your time and consideration.

As always, thanks for your time and attention.
