It's not often that something can make me laugh before I've had my coffee fix, but this cartoon did it this morning. I giggled so much, Jerame turned to me and asked, "What in the world are you laughing at this early?" When I showed it to him, he chuckled too. How about you? Make you giggle at least?
I hope everyone has a good weekend. We have so much great content in queue that I get to take the day off tomorrow for the most part and allow posts to autopublish. I'll be at the Smithsonian's American History Museum - the one I've wanted to visit the most so I've saved it for last. What've you got planned for the weekend?
- Yesterday I mentioned Maggie Gallagher's comments on her own National Review article that brushed off NOM's race-baiting strategy. Yesterday NOM leader Brian Brown released a statement that used the exact same words that aren't exactly common in ordinary conversation - "inapt" and "vituperative." Huh. Imagine that.
- Did Rick Santorum almost call President Obama a n----r? It seems like a stretch to me, but you can be the judge.
- Log Cabin Republicans head honcho R. Clarke Cooper has a column at the Washington Times that's well worth a read. Except for the gungho support for school vouchers that would bankrupt public schools, he's spot on.
- Over in the UK, a JP Morgan banker and the former star of "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" have set a precedent for Britain's highest-value civil partnership divorce. You can spend a fortune on a wedding, but divorce usually costs you more.
- The Lansing Northstar Center will feature a photography exhibit by friend of the site and fellow journalist Todd Heywood. His photographs of various hate groups and their ideologies and rallies will be presented for the month of April.
- The gay Chilean man who was attacked in the country's capital has died.
- John Waters supports the Occupy Wall Street movement but has refused to join them saying "I have three homes and a summer rental, and some of my money is in Wall Street."
- Connecticut police searched the home of Christian Bedard for allegedly attempting to blackmail former Minnesota Twins pitcher Carl Pavano. Bedard was set to go public with information about their three year relationship during high school. Bedard claimed to have a book deal worth $1.2 million if he'd spill the beans on the teenaged love affair.
