Sixth Circuit Pushes Marriage Equality Back To Supreme Court Comments (0)

Breaking with an array of other courts, the Sixth Circuit has upheld—2 to 1—gay-marriage bans in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.

This sets the stage for a near-certain Supreme Court review, which could lead to marriage equality nationwide. Or not.

By the way, check out the dissent on that Sixth Circuit farce of a decision.

Democrats Sit Out The Election, Act Surprised When Republicans Win Comments (0)

ElectionFrom DailyKos.com

Unfortunately, the night was at least as bad as expected for Democrats, with major losses leading to the Republicans and that absolute [fill in with your favorite criticism] Mitch McConnell taking over the Senate.

Even Virginia's Senate race came down to the wire—and it wasn't expected to.

NC's Kay Hagan was thought to have a strong chance to keep her Senate seat, but appears to be losing in a squeaker.

Somehow, crooked Rick Scott was re-elected in Florida, crooked Scott Walker was re-elected in Wisconsin and crooked Grimm was re-elected in New York.

Very few Democratic bright spots, and none of the Democratic bright spots were surprises.

I likely won't be blogging in two years, so here is my prediction for 2016: Hillary in a walk, and a blue wave. This shit is getting too easy to predict.

Sean-VerdiVerdi, who died this week at 23

Hotel magnate Ian Reisner has a reputation for collecting pretty boys and hosting them at his multi-million-dollar apartment, often in groups after nights of partying. That image won't help him a bit as the parents of Sean Verdi, a young man who died after a drug-fueled evening with Reisner, and authorities mull what to do next. Verdi, who was found sprawled unconscious in Reisner's tub after an unsuccessful attempt to revive him, was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.

The media has, predictably, played up Reisner's reputation—and age (46).

It's been a terrible, no-good, horrible year for Reisner, who was arrested after a traffic accident earlier this year and whose brother was recently murdered.
