Three weeks quietly passed following Dalton McGuinty’s resignation as Ontario’s premier before any of his political brethren launched a leadership bid. Then, in the space of 24 hours, a pair of contenders revealed their candidacy: Toronto-Centre MPP Glen Murray broke the silence Sunday night and Don Valley West MPP Kathleen Wynne will follow suit early this evening."

RoadGay political strategist Steve Hildebrand predicts an Obama blowout:
“Obama wins 347-191,” Hildebrand wrote. “After Romney chose Paul Ryan
as his running mate and his 47 percent comments, he was never able to
convince a majority of voters that he would be on their side. He will
lose what could have been a winnable race.”

RoadFrank Bruni rips Frank Schubert's ads: "That milestone seems within reach, and horrified opponents have responded with their favorite and nastiest scare tactic, the insinuation that America’s children are about to be corrupted. This fearmongering worked four years ago in California, where voters rejected same-sex marriage after the repeated broadcast of a commercial in which an adorable little girl exultantly informs her aghast mother that in school that day, she learned that princes could marry princes and that she could marry a princess. A stern-looking man then sweeps in to warn viewers that they will be saying O.K. to such ostensible brainwashing if they let gay couples say 'I do.'"

RoadWorld's rarest whale identified for first time ever: "The spade-toothed beaked whale has not been seen 150 years. Now two of the rare animals — a mother and her calf — have been identified. The whales washed up on an New Zealand beach in 2010. Scientists originally thought they were a couple of Gray's beaked whales (shown right), which commonly end up stranded on the shoreline. Researchers photographed the dead animals, took tissue samples and then buried them. But after two years and DNA analysis, biologists have determined that the two specimens were the long sought-after spade-toothed beaked variety."

RoadSTUDY: Teens with lesbian moms better at school, happier in life. "A new study has found that 17-year-olds with lesbian mothers had high school GPAs ranging between A-minus to B-plus, while having strong family bonds with their mothers, whom the teens consider good role models. The Williams Institute at UCLA, which conducted 'Adolescents with Lesbian Mothers Describe Their Own Lives,' tracked 78 adolescents over a 26-year period."

    Wow, a real definition of ‘lesbian parents’ in a scientific study. Perhaps Regnerus should take note.

    If it’s true about Channing what’s-his-name, then People clearly picked the wrong “Magic Mike.” Hello? Can you say Matt Bomer? Amazing looks AND character, personality and talent—–definitely not rocket science here!

    No, the pictures are from Minnesota for Marriage Facebook. They could be taken down in a year or so. What we need is to have a Wikipedia page `The Faces of Anti-Gay Marriage` so these pics can stay on there forever.

    I still don’t get all the Charming Potato love. I mean, he was cute until he opened his mouth.

    Concerning the faces on MFM facebook…

    One of the girls writes “Romans 1:26-27″ because she’s all about “religious liberty.” Those two verses were written by Paul in his letter to the Christians living in Rome. It condemns homosexuality as unnatural. My question is: What the hell does Romans 1:26-27 have to do with religious liberty?

  6. GregV says

    @KZ: Paul didn’t say anything about homosexual orientation. He was describing married (straight) people having an orgy of sex as a religious ritual worshipping birds and reptiles.

    Who knows, if a pair of men or women there HAD been gay, he might well have found that seeing them ditch each other to partake in the cult’s sex ritual with other people’s spouses equally distasteful (especially because of the animal idolatry involved). We could pnly speculate since he never mentioned meeting an actual same-sex couple in any letter at any time.

  7. Chris says

    Interestingly, Canadian websites I read did not mention either Ontario Liberal candidates sexual orientation.

    @KP05: I doubt it as he has already shown an egregious disregard for any reality except the bigoted views of his sponsors.
