Homophobia

From today's Dubuque Telegraph-Herald, check out this take-down of homophobia and all of its flimsy excuses. The fight for gay rights is not over; we are nowhere near "post-gay." This happened in a state where gay marriage has been legal for five years.

Thanks to Alan for sending.

Barack Obama storm relief NJThis looks like an iconic image

President Barack Obama met with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and toured parts of the state battered by Sandy. Both men had high praise for each other's response to the disaster, with Christie saying he "can't thank the president enough" for his compassion, concern and pro-active approach while Obama told New Jersey residents "your governor is working overtime."

Meanwile, Iowa's Rep. Steve King (R, of course) is already making demands about who will get storm aid. Unreal.

Let The Games End Comments (2)

The Iowa Caucuses would be far more interesting if they were run more like the Hunger Games.

Looking like Romney rather than Santorum pooped out in the end—less support now than four years ago even if he winds up eking out a win.

The "Iron Lady" wound up with a bad cast of rust.
