Is Denny Hastert Gay?

Lawrence O'Donnell has been imtimating that there are more gay Republicans in the House's closet. He's said so on the Huffington Post and he said so on The McLaughlin Report.

In his latest post he hints that Denny Hastert might be one of them.

If Fordham did warn Palmer about Foley a long time ago, what are the odds that Palmer did not tell Hastert? As close to zero as you can get. Many chiefs of staff are close, very close, to their bosses on Capitol Hill. But none are closer than Scott Palmer is to Denny Hastert. They don't just work together all day, they live together.

There are plenty of odd couple Congressmen who have roomed together on Capitol Hill, but I have never heard of a chief of staff who rooms with his boss. It is beyond unusual. But it must have its advantages. Anything they forget to tell each other at the office, they have until bedtime to catch up on. And then there's breakfast for anything they forgot to tell each other before falling asleep. And then there's all day at the office. Hastert and Palmer are together more than any other co-workers in the Congress.

If this gets out into the mainstream news, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell's heads will explode.

Please NBC, CNN, ABC, please, please make it happen. Keith Olbermann? Someone.
