Signorile: Ready to March Again? | PHB

Mike Signorile thinks we need to march again:
"Gee, what is Michelangelo Signorile cooking up now? He's got a provocative column up at The Advocate suggesting that the best way to get action from the Obama White House is to take to the streets. His view is that there seemed to be a lot of shuffling behind the scenes to find bones to toss to the community, with the HRC annual dinner and the NEM occurring on the same weekend -- and it was quite a stark juxtaposition of insider LGBT politicos versus busloads of a new generation of activists and movement veterans weary of the White House's excuses, dodges and head fakes about doing anything substantial on the long list of LGBT equality promises he made during the 2008 campaign."

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?
