Looks like we made it, we're Phil incorporated!

Remember when I told you (over at Bilerico.com) about that certain Senator's husband who crashed a Jim Madigan fundraiser? Well looks like y'all were reading and talking!

Drunk Husband of State Senator Heather Steans Crashes Fundraiser of Rival Jim Madigan | WindyCitizen.com:
"The Commish 1 week 22 hours ago

Sweet, this story just hit #1. Good work, team. This is a silly incident even by Illinois standards."

So the drunk Leo Smith story has taken on a life of its own, and I'm really glad that it has. Just as "The Commish" says, its a silly incident even in this state of silly incidents. But WindyCitizen.com isn't the only outlet to have picked up my version of the piece:

Heather Steans' Drunk Husband Crashes Jim Madigan Fundraiser - Feast of Fun - Chicagonow.com:
"This was just put up on the Fresh section of Feast of Fun

Jim Madigan, the openly-gay former director of Equality Illinois running for the state Senate was having a fundraiser at The Call in Andersonville Thursday night, when he was surprised by a very special guest: Leo Smith the drunk husband of incumbent 7th district Senator Heather Steans! Leo, had some very special words to share with Madigan! Check out the entire (too hot for TV) diatribe and his wonderful fashion sense.

Read the full article written by Phil Reese of Ameriqueer on the Bilerico Project."

Marc Felion from the Feast of Fun podcast up in Chicago posted this to his ChicagoNow.com blog, and it made it to the front page.

Chicago News Bench also picked up some more photos:
Chicago News Bench: More About Goofy Leo Smith (Mr. Heather Steans) with NEW Photos:
"Chicago News Bench asked for - and got - more photos, which we present in this post. You probably haven't seen these anywhere else (yet!)."

I'm pretty pumped that people are seeing my writing, and that I'm doing what I can to help change the gridlock and corruption in Springfield. We're all sick of playing the game and sending the same people to the Dome over and over again while everything gets worse for the lot of us and the machine just keeps chugging along getting bigger, without noticing that its completely useless. Its like the Illinois Political Industrial Complex!

I hope that fresh blood and underdog candidates can generate true change in Springfield. We shall see!

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?

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America:
"In attacking the media for allegedly insufficient coverage of Obama administration official Kevin Jennings, a blogger for Accuracy in Media, which purports to 'set the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage' -- and which has a record of antagonism toward gays -- smeared Jennings as a 'pedophile' and falsely claimed that '[v]ideos have surfaced of Jennings teaching 14-year-old boys the dangerous sexual practice of 'fisting,' and discussing with them the particulars of oral sex.' In fact, Jennings did not conduct that seminar and, in fact, reportedly criticized it when he became aware of its content."
AIM is a crock. They're nothing more than Republican mouthpieces.
