The Wrap-Up: October 31, 2011

This story on genetically engineered mosquitoes is apparently not science fiction.

Gay marriage or marriage equality? Gotta love semantics.

In completely tasteless exercises of free speech, a pro-gun rally is planned in November at...Virginia Tech. You know, that school where 32 people were gunned down April 16, 2007? This being my alma mater, there is no end to how disgusting I find this.

Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
According to Media Matters, FNC has largely ignored the anti-LGBT bullying epidemic facing schools and, instead, given more airtime attacking anti-bullying measures. I'm sure I can count the number of surprised people on one hand.

It wouldn't be late October without someone saying celebrating Halloween is celebrating Satan. Take it away Linda Harvey!!!

Foreign policy is like making a pizza...

Eric Cantor (R-VA)
After 72 days, Kim Kardashian is ending her marriage. Obviously, the right is succeeding in protecting marriage.

Michele Bachmann gets caught in another falsehood. It's really sad that her problems with truth aren't really news anymore. I'm glad Amanpour called her on it, but I wish she had done so in a more overt manner.

It looks like Eric Cantor's views on marriage equality didn't quite mesh with this audience in Michigan. Also, notice how he didn't answer the all.

A California high school crowned a lesbian couple for homecoming, giving me hope for the future.
