Ah, Leap Year. It's that magical day when unicorns and leprechauns come out to play with good children everywhere in their bedrooms at midnight. Of course, this scares the shit out of kids (who wouldn't be shocked to find a horned horse and a tiny man staring at you until you wake up?), so that's why it only happens every four years. It's true. I read it on the internet. This young woman is celebrating with a game of squash in Cairo, Egypt. You can't see her opponent, but it's totally a leprechaun.
- Mitt Romney won big in Arizona and eked out a narrow victory in Michigan. Yes, he squeezed out Santorum.
- Support for marriage equality has soared in California. The group with the highest amount of change? Non-partisans followed closely by Republican voters.
- St. Petersburg, Russia has passed their odious bill to ban gay pride events, LGBT orgs, and any "promotion of homosexuality." No word yet on whether or not Sex and the City is not illegal.
- Would conservatives hate Jesus? Former editor Alex Blaze says no.
- Maine's moderate Republican Senator, Olympia Snowe, will retire rather than seek re-election. She's using the same line former Indiana moderate Democrat Evan Bayh did when he called it quits: politics has become too polarized and partisan. Of course, Bayh went on to become a FOX News talking head, so I guess Snowe is headed to MSNBC.
- Lady Gaga will play an alien in Men In Black III. That just makes me want to see it even more!
- Not content with attacking Ellen and JC Penny, One Million Moms is trying to drum up more faux controversy by attacking Toys R Us and Archie comics. Maybe some day soon, they'll concentrate on issues that actually affect children.
- The Indian government has decided that it's okay to be gay and will not challenge an earlier Supreme Court ruling overturning the criminalization of gay sex. I can't wait to see that It Gets Better video.
