"After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs. Palin told him that 'dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time,' Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said 'she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks,' recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska."

road.jpg NYT on the current state of being gay in Hollywood: "...for most gay actors, Hollywood is not a warm and fuzzy episode of 'Will & Grace.' Today, it is certainly more acceptable to be openly gay. But these actors must still answer wrenching questions: Just how candid do you want to be? Would you be happy appearing only in comedies, or being pigeonholed as a character actor? And what does the line 'You’re just not right for the role' really mean? Jasika Nicole, 28, an F.B.I. agent on 'Fringe,' a new Fox drama, said that as bigger parts became available, her manager, John Essay, sat her down and asked how public she wanted to be about being a lesbian. Some roles could be lost, he told her, as would some fans."

Meanwhile, Deputy Republican Leader David Hess is sponsoring a proposed repeal of part of the civil unions law. He wants to strike out the language that recognizes another state’s same sex marriage as a civil union in New Hampshire."

  2. "The problem, as far as our political process is concerned, is that half the electorate revels in Palin's lack of intellectual qualifications. When it comes to politics, there is a mad love of mediocrity in this country."

    --But doesn't that say so much about the Republican Party and its hypocritical stances? On the one hand, Republicans scream an and shout against Affirmative Action, for instance, and unqualified minorities, but they have no problem installing morons in the White House!

    Seriously, George W. revels in having been a C student John McCain touts graduating in the bottom 5 of his college class; and Sarah Palin struggled through 5 different colleges.

    On the other hand, there's Barack Obama, both of his parents had doctorates. Following in their footsteps, he graduated from Columbia University and then Harvard Law (Magna Cum Laude).

    But, as an African-American, his education is either dismissed as a result of Affirmative Action (neglecting the whole Magna Cum Laude) or he is called an effete elitist. Now, add in the fact that Obama grew up poor and used student loans to pay for college, he is an elitist!

    Joe Biden? Another guy with brains? Hey, who needs him!? Argh!

    Look, this country is in train wreck condition. Why would we not want to have the smartest and most talented people working for us? Why don't these Republicans consider that that having a moron in the driver's seat for the last 8 years led to this crash?

  3. Barbra doesn't need a new soap box. She had her own blog for a long time. I'm surprised Huffington has aded her, as her comments aren't any more well-formed than the average man on the street's. Nothing she is saying is new.

    I love Barbra. Really I do. She has every right to express herself, and I usually agree with her. She does not, however, belong on the Huffington Post's web site.

  4. After I read the NYTimes article which featured (out) Fringe actress Jasika Nicole I emailed her (she has a website with her amazing drawings on it which I found via IMDB.com) to thank her for her bravery and honesty. She responded a day later, completely gracious and sweet, thanking me for writing to her and supporting her and other out celebs. This is a young woman just beginning her career, not someone who has been in the spotlight, pretending to be something else while making tons of money.
    She is an inspiration. Watch the show, she's amazing.
