The Wrap-Up: December 12, 2011

As Major League Baseball did a few weeks ago, now the National Basketball Association has also added sexual orientation to its collective bargaining agreement. So, how long until the American "Family" Association calls for a boycott of the two leagues?

The Anoka-Hennepin School District, which has seen numerous students commit suicide as a result of anti-gay bullying, will be considering a new anti-bullying policy. The question  is whether or not it will actually do anything.

At least one corporation has caved to pressure from the political right to remove advertising from TLC's "All-American Muslim." Other corps, not so much.

Rand Paul
If Rick Perry had taken Mitt Romney up on that $10,000 bet, who would have won?

Mitt Romney has stated that he would NOT seek to reinstitute DADT, though gays still shouldn't get married. Is he not merciful...

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is not holding back in his criticism of Newt Gingrich and his conservatism.

I have to say that this was the most awkward part of the GOP debate on Saturday...mainly because Newt Gingrich was in the room (and staring daggers).

Andrew Breitbart (former GOProud board member)
Rep. Joe "Deadbeat Dad" Walsh (R-IL) is changing districts after redistricting. No word on whether he has paid the $117,000 he still owes in child-support.

Income inequality? What income inequality???

The fallout from Rick Perry's massive failure of an ad is on-going. Resignations, hate-speech, and finger pointing all abound.

And lastly, here is a look at Stephen Colbert's take on Perry's ad.
