So... I broke a national news story yesterday... wanna see it?

It didn't end up very big, and most of the major media ignored it (as is typical--I mean if it had been 5 Teabaggers there there would have been satellite trucks galore) but I was kind of beaming yesterday because--not only did a direct action group rightfully target Senator McCain on Don't Ask, Don't Tell--but I got to break the story on the Feast of Fun blog first. AND I did all of those updates will sitting through a class lecture. Triple sweet.

BREAKING: More civil disobedience–sit in in McCain’s office:
"MAJOR UPDATE: WE NOW KNOW THAT THE ACTIVISTS SITTING IN AT MCCAIN’S OFFICE ARE FROM A GROUP KNOWN AS H.E.R.O. If you’re in the Phoenix area today at 5pm, please join H.E.R.O. and their supporters for a rally at McCain’s office!

Apparently the Equality Across America organization, born out of the National Equality March, has been inspired by GetEqual. According to a few sources trickling out of Phoenix, five activists are staging in a sit in at McCain’s office there. Please call to tell McCain’s staff he needs to support the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” (602) 952-2410

I will deliver the news as it comes.

UPDATE 1–2:24pm CT..."

There are a LOT of updates AND CORRECTIONS to this story on the Feast of Fun page, and the only way to read them all is to go there.

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.
