I’m loving it.
This would be Fox at roughly 2:38 p.m. ET today:
This is Fox now:
Note that the “War on Marriage” BS is gone? Hahahahahahahaha!
Gay marriage will be legalized and Fox knows it. It’s all about ratings.
[I]n the first 90 minutes after the news broke Wednesday, the campaign received $1 million in spontaneous contributions, a Democrat told BuzzFeed.
Take a lesson Democrats: We like it when our politicians act like Democrats instead of Republicans-lite.
I can’t resist putting this up from 350.org. 350.org is Bill McKibben‘s organization, probably the leading climate change awareness organization on the planet and one that is working its butt off to get us to stop using oil and coal.
Check out this photo and email message he got from, “the heart of tarsands country, in Fort McMurray Alberta” in response to 350.org’s “Connect the Dots” climate action day on May 5:
I am an Oil Sands worker and risked my job to take this picture. Myself, along with the majority of my co-workers are ready for a renewable energy revolution. We need to stand together to eliminate the corruption that exists in this industry, start taxing carbon emissions, and creating green jobs for a sustainable future. We do not work in this industry because we like supporting large oil companies; we simply have no other choice. We want jobs that provide long term economic, social and environmental sustainability for ourselves, our country and our planet.

If someone working at an oil refinery is willing to risk his or her job to make a sign and send in a photo, that person deserves a whole lot of Internet airtime. Hurray to them for their courage.
Here’s the headline at FoxNation.com right now (project much?):
“War on marriage?” Oh geezus. Gasholes.
I have to say I kind of agree with this statement from Log Cabin Republicans, the gay Republican organization. Too bad Obama didn’t announce his support for gay marriage on Monday, or last Friday, or heck, a year ago.
(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans respond to President Barack Obama’s latest evolution on the freedom to marry.
“That the president has chosen today, when LGBT Americans are mourning the passage of Amendment One, to finally speak up for marriage equality is offensive and callous,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “Log Cabin Republicans appreciate that President Obama has finally come in line with leaders like Vice President Dick Cheney on this issue, but LGBT Americans are right to be angry that this calculated announcement comes too late to be of any use to the people of North Carolina, or any of the other states that have addressed this issue on his watch. This administration has manipulated LGBT families for political gain as much as anybody, and after his campaign’s ridiculous contortions to deny support for marriage equality this week he does not deserve praise for an announcement that comes a day late and a dollar short.”
Obama has evolved! What he said today during an interview with ABC News: ‘Same-sex marriage should be legal.”

B R A V O !
Now let’s get ‘er done.
On Monday Mitt Romney said he’d “take a lot of credit” for President Obama bailing out the auto industry and for its resurgence. Unfortunately for him, Mitt seems to have forgotten about The Google because it only takes four seconds to prove that up until about six weeks ago he thought we should have let the industry go bankrupt. So the Obama campaign is out with a new ad reminding Mitt of the facts:
North Carolina voted to ban gay marriage yesterday and with that said, this is My Tweet of the Day:
This is how ridiculous the whole ban-gay-marriage issue is. Who does it hurt if gays and lesbians are allowed to marry? Someone, anyone, please tell me!
Here is my quote of the day from the obviously brilliant and wise (I hope you detect my sarcasm) Richard Mourdock, the Tea Party Republican who defeated long-time Republican Senator Richard Lugar in yesterday’s Indiana primary:
“I certainly think that bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view.”
Ah yes, that from the party of Dumb is Cool.
