Tucker Carlson's New Site Kicks Off With Homophobic Smear Against Rachel Maddow

The Daily Caller, launched today, features a column by <i>The Weekly Standard</i>'s Matt Labash, who calls Maddow the "sexiest man alive."

Tucker Carlson's new web site, The Daily Caller, launched today, featuring a column by The Weekly Standard's Matt Labash:

For those unfamiliar with me from my day job at The Weekly Standard, I'll give you a capsule bio by way of introduction: I have the gift of wisdom. Does that sound arrogant?  I'm sorry, that wasn't my intention. I didn't choose wisdom. It chose me. If I had my druthers, I'd have chosen another gift, perhaps the untold riches of Lil' Wayne, whose teeth are made of actual diamonds, or to be the sexiest man alive, like Rachel Maddow. But wisdom is what they gave me, so wisdom is all I have to give back to you.

Funny, isn't it?  No?  Well, maybe you just don't get it.  'Cause, see, Rachel Maddow is gay.  And so, according to Matt Labash, she's really a man.  Now do you get it?  No?  Neither do I.
