Not quite as promised
Mind you, I am no fan of Michele Bachman (and I happen to agree that Marcus is trying to hog all the gay), but I find this richly amusing, almost ironic. Thus is the danger of naming a group with a number. Fall short--as this most likely will--and you wind up looking like an ass.
Then again, claiming that random famous men of the past were gay is also questionable, as far as I am concerned. Seriously, the best evidence for Michelangelo having been gay is that he produced an awful lot of male nudes. I mean, that can't possibly be a side effect of being a man in a very patriarchal time period, could it? (Have you noticed how the possibility of a man being bisexual is almost never considered? How sexist is that, really? Women are bisexual all the time 'cause they can't be without a penis, but what would a gay man--with the attendant dick fest--want with a woman now and then? But I digress.)
