A look back at today's top stories

WINGNUTTERY

Phil Kent, a Governor's Appointee in the state of Georgia, is calling for anti-gay activists to rise up in a culture war against gay marriage. It seems like there is already a culture war, and the pro-love side is winning. David Gregory sat down with Tim Huelskamp yesterday and totally disabused him of the notion that gay families are bad for kids. Also one of the heads of NOM is ranting that SCOTUS' rulings amount to "judicial tyranny". What a poor loser.
