Poll Smokers

The Log Cabin Republicans announce a new poll showing majorities of Republicans supporting some gay issues and believing their own party "has spent too much time focusing on moral issues such as abortion and gay marriage and should instead be spending time focusing on economic issues such as taxes and government spending.”

I was skeptical about which GOPersons were being polled, and surprised to read "The poll included Republicans from all parts of the country—with the largest percentage (38%) from the South."

Wonders never cease.

...of CIA 'misconduct.' So that's what you call planned assassinations of leaders of sovereign countries? Eavesdrop on U.S. political groups and open the mail of private citizens? Dosing people with L.S.D. without their consent or knowledge causing at least one suicide?

A Kiss Is Just A Kiss...

...unless of course you pay to put it in your highschool yearbook... and you're young and black and gay... and the grown-ups FREAK OUT and use black markers to cover up the kiss in ever single yearbook before they are distributed to students... (via The Stranger.)

UPDATE: The New York Times picks up the story, describing other photos from the same yearbook, only of heterosexual P.D.A.s, which of course went uncensored.

UPDATED UPDATE: The uptight school district finally apologizes.

Losing Time

A Dutch website purports to show video of President Bush losing his watch while greeting well-wishers in a crowd.

Quote of the Day

"As the friends I once served with head off to 15-month deployments, I regret I’m not there to lessen their burden and to serve my country. I’m trained to fight, I speak Arabic and I’m willing to serve. No recruiter needs to make a persuasive argument to sign me up. I’m ready, and I’m waiting."
- Ousted Arabic translator Stephen Benjamin, who was too gay to fight terrorism
