A boastful, passionate, whispering, masculine kind of love



I really can't do better than the Gawker commentary.

Gay American, former Jersey mayor and current press whore Jim McGreevey kicked off his whirlwind talk show tour yesterday by submitting to a wildly awkward chat with Oprah yesterday (stunningly liveblogged by the Grey Lady -- just scroll down), during which he actually read aloud our favorite passage from his memoir, The Confession. The utter lack of emotion as he reads of "a boastful, passionate, whispering, masculine kind of love" is the kind of audio you want to listen to alone, in a darkened room, with nothing but tissue and lotion. It's followed by a sheepish eyeroll, which is almost as priceless as the seven second pause he takes before telling Oprah that making love to his wife "was special." Good to choose those banal words carefully, though we'd guess his wife would disagree.

    What fresh metaphors.

    Though I think we can all get behind adulterous gay sex qua Enlightenment.

    Also, I suggest you put a "[sic]" after "mayor."

    Another correction to Gawker: the Oprah appearance was liveblogged not just by the "Grey Lady" anonymously, but by Hottest Gay Journalist in New York (tm) Patrick Healy.
