The Wrap-Up: December 15, 2011

President Barack Obama
The White House has rescinded its threat to veto the National Defense Authorization Act, despite many terrible provisions that are patently un-Constitutional.

Canadians are being warned that their nation may be striped of its progressive accomplishments by the Tories (conservatives), including (but not limited to) marriage equality.

If Lowes removed its ads from TLC's "All-American Muslim" to avoid controversy, the scope of its failure seems to grow by the day.

The Florida "Family" Association, the organization claiming credit for getting Lowes to drop its ads in "All-American Muslim," has quite a long list of complaints.

Donald Trump
The video I posted yesterday about Virginia chapters of the Tea Party and Occupy Richmond meeting was based on an article from which can be found here.

Not only are most of the GOP candidates not showing up to Donald Trump's debate, he isn't showing up either.

Rick Santorum says he is right where he wants to be in this GOP race. Someone should tell him that political campaigns don't work like golf scores.
A GOP led effort to pass a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution failed on Wednesday 47-53 (it needed 2/3 to pass). A similar measure had already failed in the House.

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) made a few surprising admissions on liberals and the debt in a Wednesday appearance on C-SPAN.

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)
What constitutes blocking a president's nominee to be an ambassador? If You're Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), denouncing homophobia. This of course says more about DeMint than it says about the nominee.

West Virginia has included sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in the state's anti-bullying policy.

And lastly, Mitt Romney has just nabbed the wiccan-demographic.
