SF Chronicle Outs Sens. McConnell & Graham as Gay?

(Click to enlarge.)

What are we to make of today's "Bad Reporter" comic strip by Don Asmussen in the San Francisco Chronicle satirizing suspected GOP, as in Gay Old Party, closet cases Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham?

The first panel shows the South Carolina politician's mug superimposed on a woman preparing a turkey for cooking under the words, "CNN: Your Aunt at Thanksgiving is Not Sen. Lindsey Graham".

The incoming U.S. Senate Majority Leader is shown in the third panel wearing a wig and necklace over a black shirt. The text reads, "Your Grammy at Thanksgiving is Not Mitch McConnell".

In the center panel U.S. House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama are featured and neither is feminized like the senators.

Has the Chronicle outed Graham and McConnell? To my queer mind, the answer is yes.
