New Wonkette/Old Homophobia?

Posted by on January 23 at 15:31 PM

The fierce flamers over at have diagnosed the man replacing Anna Marie Cox at Wonkette with an long-standing case of homophobia.

According to the New York Times, David B. Lat, AKA the new Wonkette, has a troubling anti-gay history at Harvard, where Lat repeatedly castigated his alma mater’s Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Student Association.

Full NYT story here. report here.

Still, how homophobic can someone as bitchy and campy as Lat be?

This question is mulled in the NYT piece by Elaine Golin, a lawyer and former colleague of Lat’s: “David was on this one side a hard-core Federalist Society type, who clerked for an extremely hard-right judge, and was way to the right of most of his associates. And he had this whole other side of flamboyant, theater-watching, Oscar-watching, shoe-loving, litigatrix. How do these two sides get reconciled?”

Who knows? Maybe Lat should ask former Spokane mayor Jim West….
