A look back at today's top stories
Boy, when Anthony Weiner attempts a comeback he does it in a really public way. Two years after the former Congressman stepped down over a sexting scandal, he has announced his intention to run for Mayor of New York City. Voters think he shouldn't be running at a rate of nearly two-to-one. Former Defense Secretary and overall cretin Donald Rumsfeld was recently asked what he thought about gay marriage and he replied that he worries it will lead to polygamy.
Wolf Blitzer embarrassed himself in front of a tornado survivor as he discovered that she is an atheist after asking her if she thanked the Lord. The Vatican is denying that the Pope performed an exorcism recently after a video emerged of him laying hands on a wheelchair bound person. And NOM's Brian Brown has condemned the recent anti-gay violence in New York City, though no word on if he also condemns the hate speech that can often lead to such violence.
An arrest has been made in one of the several attacks during this recent rash of anti-gay assaults in New York City. The gay former Boy Scout who took his case against the Scouts' anti-gay policies all the way to the Supreme Court in 2000 recently spoke out about the efforts to end the ban on gays. Also voters in Tennessee are not entirely as anti-gay as one might assume.
