COFFEE HOUR 507 - Dobson bashes, Obama is silent, the RNC is crazy, Merv Griffin did Rock Hudson.

James Dobson is busy trying to spread the "truth" about the recently passed hate crimes bill.

White House Watch: The Executive Branch is struggling on how to respond to the slew of pro-Equality action around the nation. He does not know how to respond, despite the urgent need for some sort of statement.

State2State: In MASSACHUSETTS, CERTIFIED Hate Group, MassResistance, claims that their Ex-Gay conference was disrupted by pro-Equality "terrorists." In NORTH CAROLINA an anti-bullying bill looks like it has a good chance of making it! In CALIFORNIA, Dustin Lance Black testifies in favor of Harvey Milk Day. Also, the first lesbian rabbi joins the Southern California Board of Rabbis.

Party Time: RNC Chair Michael Steele breaks with MAINE Republican Senators Snowe and Collins in his reaction to their state's Marriage Equality decision. Both Senators have, in the past, been supportive of LGBT rights (I've actually met Snowe at an HRC meet and greet before!).

Off the Blotter: Did Merv Griffin do it with Rock Hudson and Marlon Brando? His new biography outs him (sort of... its not a huge surprise). Is Perez Hilton getting a brain? I'm not hating him! More on the Virginia Foxx "apology."

On the Calendar: Want to visit Philadelphia? Want a totally gay travel package? Southwest airlines is marketing to you!

A little self-indulgence: KYLIE MINOGUE IS GOING TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA!!! Am I going to get tickets for the Chicago show? Probably.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
