David Dreier's problems - but consistency evidently ain't one of them

It has been reported (here and here) that conservative Republican (and no, that is not redundant) Rep. David Dreier is in the process of being "outed" as (insert gasp here) a homosexual. What makes this "news", beyond our Puritanical sexual curiosities, is that Rep. Dreier has a significant voting history that could be viewed as not exactly "rainbow-friendly".

I thought to myself that if it is true, this would appear to be one of the most self-hating gay men since Roy Cohn. My wife (who's clearly the smart one) pointed out to me that if Dreier is indeed a self-hating gay man who doesn't believe in gay rights, then he's not really a hypocrite.
