Well, not quite. A pretty uninteresting exchange between Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and California Senator Barbara Boxer got blown out of proportion. Really no big deal considering they were discussing something important and the GOP wants to distract people from what's really going on. Feministing has the play-by-play.

John Aravosis has some even better analysis: Condi is a lesbian. Here's the heart of the argument:
I think they freaked out because for years there have been rumors - unsubstantiated from what I know - about Condi's true sexual orientation. She doesn't appear to date men. She's around 52 years old and has never been married. Her life's dream is to become the commissioner of the National Football League. And she had a very strange exchange on FOX News a few years back in which one of the FOX hosts seemed to be trying to set Condi up on a date with a female anchor at FOX (true story).
The best part of politics is speculating on the sexual orientation of public officials.
