Whipping up the Anti-HRC mob with creative editing | Bay Windows

Bay Windows - New England's largest GLBT newspaper:
"If you needed any more proof that the LGBT blogosphere is every bit as susceptible to incomplete information, misinformation, and a mob mentality as are its right-wing counterparts, you need only look back to an e-mail blast sent on Oct. 9 on behalf of Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Executive Director Joe Solmonese. In that message, sent to people who signed up to receive messages from HRC, Solmonese asked rhetorically, '[W]hat has [Obama] done? I’ve written that we have actually covered a good deal of ground so far. But I’m not going to trot out those advances right now because I have something more relevant to say: It’s not January 19, 2017.'"

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?
