Yesterday was primary day, not only in Connecticut, where the media has been in a frenzy over the Democratic contest between Joe Lieberman and Ned Lamont, but in Michigan as well. We had an interesting fight going on in the Republican primary for the Senate, where Keith Butler, who looks for all the world like a corrupt evangelist in the Jim Bakker mold, is running for the chance to face incumbent Debbie Stabenow in November. It looks like Michigan was… Read more

George Clinton (I really hope it was the George Clinton) emailed me with this link to a story about anti-gay bigots in Latvia. The city of Riga refused to issue a permit for a gay pride parade, but that wasn’t good enough for these cretins. They couldn’t even let a group of gay rights activists attend church in peace. On the way out, they threw eggs at them and dumped bags of feces over their heads. Anti-gay demonstrators hurled feces… Read more

“But enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think of me?” So goes the classic scene with the insufferable bore. Now compare that to Dembski’s comments about Barbara Forrest signing her book for him “with thanks”: She thanked me. Why was that? Because, at a deep level, she realizes that her professional advancement (she is now an endowed professor — she was largely unknown, like O’Leary, before entering this debate) and, indeed, her reason for having any… Read more

Here’s a follow up article on the Lakeway Inn in Meade, Kansas. That’s the little restaurant and B&B that has a small rainbow flag hanging outside that anti-gay bigots presumed had something to do with homosexuality and thus threw a major hissy fit, cutting up the flag and starting boycotts and protests. This is a hopeful turn: “We’re getting 200 e-mails a day,” J.R. says. To give financial support to the Lakeway for standing its ground, people out of the… Read more

Agape Press has a column full of great wailing and gnashing of teeth over the San Diego City Council issing a proclamation welcoming the 25th annual gay pride parade in that town, an event that brings some 100,000 people into the city to spend lots of money. The column complains about things taking place that are “too offensive to describe in print” and in the middle there is a link to pictures from the parade, in between two warnings in… Read more

Testimony from military investigators in the trial of 4 US soldiers on trial in a military court for the rape and murder of a 14 year old Iraqi girl. At the hearing into whether four U.S. soldiers should be court-martialled for rape and murder, a special agent described what took place in Mahmudiya in March, based on an interview he had with one of the men, Specialist James Barker… Special Agent Benjamin Bierce recalled that Barker described to him how… Read more

This time it’s Chuck Humphrey. He’s filed a Federal suit, attempting to act as a “private attorney general” (his words, not mine), against a range of companies who run fantasy football leagues. The companies include CBS, Disney (which owns ESPN), and others. See the actual complaint here. He is trying to end this “online gambling”. Now, most people probably don’t know who Chuck Humphrey is, but I do. He used to be a regular in the poker newsgroup. He was… Read more

Calling John Bambenek, the STACLU contributor who claimed that the 5th circuit court of appeals case that Tom DeLay lost last week was proof of “differing application of the law” to Republicans than Democrats and of “judicial activism”? I wonder what he’ll say now that none other than Justice Scalia has refused DeLay’s request for a stay of that court order? It took him only 3 hours to deny the request. I guess Scalia is just motivated against Republicans too,… Read more

And here’s a perfect example. Rabbi Yehuda Levin is still ranting like a lunatic about the gay pride event in Jerusalem, as Agape Press reports. And you’re gonna love this logic: Orthodox Jewish rabbi Yehuda Levin fears that this homosexual pride event is turning the Holy City into a “homo city” — and he is worried that the government’s support of the week will bring on severe judgment from God… The rabbi also notes that Israel’s prime minister and Hezbollah’s… Read more
