The Wrap-Up: October 28, 2011

Linda Harvey
It looks like a battle is shaping up between Wayne Bessen of Truth Wins Out (which, in part, debunks ex-gay reparative therapy) and Linda Harvey, an arch-homophobe and conservative radio host. She has threatened to sue him over quoting her verbatim. In the latest salvo, TWO has posted a list of quotes and audio attributable to Harvey. Ain't she sweet?

Just when the one out rugby player from the United Kingdom retires, another one comes out of the closet. This begs the question: are U.K. athletes braver than American athletes or is it merely a difference of culture?

The House Blue Dogs (conservative leaning Democrats) were worse than decimated in to 2010. Facing another tough election next year, they're cranking up their fundraising efforts.

Stuart Walker
An arrest has been made in the brutal murder of Stuart Walker in Scotland.

And about those allegations that Stuart had molested a child? Yeah, turns out they were false and the source was very unreliable.

Despite the FACT that Republicans want to gut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education, and every other form of government spending that isn't defense or subsidies to big oil while at the same time giving massive tax cuts to their corporate overlords, they are claiming to be the ones saving the social safety-net.

Why do Republicans keep switching front-runners for their party's nomination? Cenk Uygur explains.

Speaking of Cenk Uygur, HERE he is talking about Oakland's pandering/tone-deaf mayor and the behaviour of Occupy protesters.

Kirsten Gillibrand
When even a super skeptical Koch brother funded scientist finds that the world is warming rapidly, THE WORLD IS WARMING RAPIDLY!!!

Apparently marriage equality will destroy America, despite the fact that it has done no serious damage to Holland which has had it for a decade.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has introduced a bill to end adoption discrimination based on sexual orientation.
