The Meanest Trick You Can Play on a Kid: VIDEO


Once again this year, Jimmy Kimmel told parents to prank their children by telling them they ate all their Halloween candy. And once again, among the shrieking and the crying and the frustrated were a few kids with hearts made of such sweetness that the lost candy didn't matter.

Maryland Marriage Equality Update with Martin O'Malley and Michael Steele: VIDEO


Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley appears in a new ad for Question 6 in Maryland.


And David Mixner reports on some ugly campaigning from the GOP there:

In Maryland millions of voters will go to the polls tomorrow to vote marriage equality up and down. It is very close.

On the same ballot is a statewide version of the "Dream Act" and a measure to build another casino in Maryland. Besides marriage, I am huge supporter of the Dream Act and until yesterday couldn't have cared less about the casinos.

That is not the case any more.

This weekend former GOP National Chair Michael Steele sent out a slate to all Republicans (it was NOT the official Republican slate) and asked them to vote yes for the casino and AGAINST marriage equality and the Dream Act. This slate was financed by interests from the casinos.

The love you and then hurt you approach simply won't work for us anymore.

Every LGBT voter in Maryland, every supporter who cares about our rights, and every person who believes in honesty and decency should - when they go to the polls in Maryland tomorrow -  vote NO on the casinos and YES for marriage equality and the Dream Act.

The LGBT community must not be jerked around anymore and I urge you to send a powerful message. If you live outside the state but know Maryland voters call them and pass on the message.

Madonna Tells Fans at Minnesota Concert to Vote No on the Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment: VIDEO


Madonna was at the Twin Cities on Saturday night and forced fans at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul to promise to vote "no" on Minnesota's anti-gay marriage amendment this Tuesday.

Said Madonna: "Vote 'no' on the marriage amendment. Vote 'no' on the marriage amendment. Why? Why? Because we are a democracy and we should have the freedom to choose who we want to marry. Thank you very much. Did you hear what I said? Are you gonna vote no? Are you gonna vote no? Are you gonna vote no?"

Anti-Abortion Heckler Dragged from Obama Rally in Cincinnati: VIDEO


An anti-abortion heckler waving graphic images of fetuses was dragged from an Obama rally in Cincinnati on Sunday after a group of police pried his fingers off the stadium bars.


Politico writes:

Obama paused his remarks as the crowd drowned the man out while the crowd picked up the familiar a chant of “four year years.”

With the Obama campaign controlling the ticket distribution at its events, hecklers interrupting the president are extremely rare. Obama, not used to the disruption, did not appear to enjoy having to pause his remarks.

“Let’s try this again,” he offered, delving back to his now-standard riff about concern for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

If you didn't see the New Left Media video we posted yesterday of Ohio voters expressing their support for Romney, it's a must-watch. Check it out HERE.
