From the "I guess there is such a thing as a dumb question" file

From the Los Angeles Times:

(Issa campaign manager Scott) Taylor also took a shot at Michael Huffington, the 1994 Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. Huffington, a wealthy former congressman who lives in Brentwood, released a statement Friday that he might run for governor as a moderate. Taylor said Huffington, who is openly gay, was not a serious candidate.

"I just have the feeling voters aren't going to embrace the first bisexual gubernatorial candidate," Taylor said. Minutes later, Issa's communications director, Jonathan Wilcox, said Taylor's remark about Huffington had been "reckless."

"Might I ask you not to print that?" he asked.

Jonathon Wilcox: Funny guy.
