VERY QUICK ROUNDUP! 703 - PALIN IS RESIGNING! NY, CA, PA, TX, INDIA, UGANA

SARAH PALIN IS RESIGNING!

In.D.C|| Gee now we know how the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee feels about us--they left us off of the "Priority Issues Survey!" Now even if Dems WANTED to tell them to make Transgender and LGB issues priorities, they can't! This is kind of an AMAZING critique of the administration's DADT slowness.

STATE2STATE|| In NEW YORK, Governor Patterson told the Senate: 'if you can't stop being dumbasses, you'll be here all holiday weekend!' Now the Comptroller is agreeing to withhold Senate pay! Is there a serial gay basher stalking NYC? In CALIFORNIA, THE BLEND'S PAM updates us on the Camp Pendleton Hate Crime murder. In PENNSYLVANIA, last night Allegheny County created a Human Rights Commission to extend non-discrimination protections to LGBTQ persons.

RAINBOW LOUNGE FIASCO|| LAST NIGHT THE FORT WORTH POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCED IT WOULD SUSPEND ALL "BAR CHECKS" IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE TEXAS ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE COMMISSION!

AROUND/THE/GLOBE|| Is the Delhi court ruling legalizing homosexuality in INDIA binding nationwide? It looks like it might be! Uganda may ban ALL LGBT advocacy!

OFF/THE/MAP|| LAWDORK sticks it to John Aravosis at AMERICABLOG again. Can't we all just get along?

TOAST TO CURT MCKAY!

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?

HAPPY HOUR... POSTPONED.
