Premiere: KINGS, QUEENS, & IN-BETWEENS Comments (0)

Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens is debuting April 2 and 3 at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The film, five years in the making, addresses issues of identity in sexual orientation and gender.

From a press release:

KINGS, QUEENS, & IN-BETWEENS is a documentary about gender through the lens of drag, featuring the compelling stories of 8 performers from Columbus, Ohio -- “the crown jewel of drag in the Midwest.” KQIB peels back the layers of identity through the art form of drag and shines a light on the distinctions between gender, sex, and sexuality. Through humor and poignancy, KQIB makes a complex subject approachable for mainstream audiences. As a pre-festival reviewer wrote: "In this fab documentary…Gender is the New Frontier, and here are the pioneers who are defining, redrawing, and crossing those borders. Call them what you will (and they do not give a damn what that is), they are two things for certain: they are Strong and they are Fabulous. KINGS, QUEENS & IN-BETWEENS will introduce you to your new heroes.”

Clean Sweep: Hillary Buries Bernie In Key States of FL, OH & NC; Wins IL In Close Call; Wins MO By Skin Of Her Teeth Comments (0)

Hillary Clinton's path to becoming the first female presidential nominee of one of the two major political parties just got clearer: She dominated in North Carolina, Florida and, somewhat surprisingly, in Ohio.

She won Illinois, which was not called by CNN until about 12:15 a.m.

As of this writing, she's trailing slightly in Missouri and leading slightly in Illinois.

Looking at which votes have yet to be counted, it's possible her position could switch in both states; either way, by winning big in the big states and by keeping it close in the rest, she will extend her delegate lead tonight—big-time.

She won in Missouri by approximately .2%. That's POINT TWO. Something like 1,531 votes.

She was classy in her speech toward Bernie Sanders, who had a really bad night. Sanders apparently didn't congratulate Hillary in his speech. WTF?

I can only surmise that in Michigan, lots of cross-over voters who figured she had it in the bag voted as Republicans, and the surprise loss there lit a fire under her supporters in Ohio. Still, her dominance in the historically important swing state of Ohio is a shocker.

 
Republican Slugfest Tonight Ends With Trump Victorious—But Not In Ohio; Little Marco Gets Microscopic Comments (0)

Bye, bye, Little Marco.

Marco Rubio, the #1 Republican the Hillary Clinton campaign feared, never gelled with the people. Tonight, after a dismal finish in his home state, the senator called it quits, leaving the race between just Donald Trump (who won tonight's states save for Ohio), Sen. Ted Cruz (who seems to be on the verge of taking Missouri) and Gov. John Kasich (who provided a speed bump for Trump by taking the state he's currently running into the ground, Ohio).

In his speech tonight, Sen. Cruz grotesquely noted that Hillary Clinton tosses and turns “in her jail cell” over the threat she feels from, of all people, Carly Fiorina. (Why are they even compared in the same breath? They have exactly one thing in common—gender.)

Trump is going to have a hard time getting to the nomination in a clean way having been denied Ohio. Perhaps a contested convention is a reality for the Republicans.

Will the establishment suck it up and get behind Trump, who's earned the nomination in spirit if not in the delegate count, or will it deny him, knowing they'd be alienating his voters and potentially handing the White House to the Democrats?

Polls Show Trump Winning FL & IL, Not OH; Clinton Ahead In All Three (But, What's Up, IL?) Comments (0)

A batch of new polls promises that Tuesday night will be ... unsettling. Or very, very, very settling, as in nominees could be settled.

Worth noting: Florida and Ohio's delegates are winner take all on the GOP side. This Tuesday involves voting in those states plus Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri and the Northern Mariana Islands (for Dems).

The polls show Trump cleaning up in Florida and Illinois, but losing Ohio to Kasich, who is, at this point, no more than a spoiler/contest-convention-hopeful. Rubio/Kasich? Romney/Kasich? Cruz/Kasich?

The polls also show Hillary ahead by miles in Florida (I don't particularly understand that) and Ohio (ditto), but leading by a slim margin in Illinois, her actual home state. This sort of makes sense in that I don't think Illinois feels like her home state and Illinois has a very Michigan feel (but so does Ohio, so..?). It would probably embarrass her to lose Illinois again; last time, Obama was such an Illinois hometown hero, it was a foregone conclusion.

What would work out best for the Democrats on Tuesday—presuming Hillary is going to be the nominee anyway, which regardless of your preference is a pretty safe presumption—if for her to win them all, relegating Bernie to “you did surprisingly well, but are not going to win” status. He's already had a big impact on the race, so I wouldn't say he should or will quit on a dime ... (Keep reading after the jump)

Sanders Has Historic Surprise Win In MI Primary, Clinton Dominates In MS, Republicans Still Like Trump Comments (0)

Hillary Clinton has narrowly lost the Michigan primary to Bernie Sanders, in spite of polls showing her winning by 20+% (and the normally reliable Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight giving her a greater than 99% chance of winning).

Sanders will win by around 20,000 votes, meaning they will split the delegates. Still, the win should psych up his supporters in places like Ohio, where Clinton is also—for now!—expected to win in a week. A week's a long time!

Hopefully, for Clinton voters like me, this defeat will remind voters not to rely on huge leads in polls—the only polls that matter are the ones on election day.

For those keeping track, it is still seen as nearly impossible for Sanders to win the nomination; there are simply too many delegates he'd have to make up, and this will likely be his only major upset. As much of an upset as it genuinely is, for which he and his supporters deserve credit, it does not fundamentally change the race.

But it's a big win.

Trump won big in Michigan and Mississippi, but Cruz took Idaho.

Neither side's primary is over!
