The Wrap-Up: December 19, 2011

Saturday night saw another GOP presidential debate, which means more factual inaccuracies (I'm looking at you Michele Bachmann).

This report on the failing health of Etta James makes me sad. I decided a long time ago that "At Last" will be playing at my wedding reception. Again, about that so-called defense of marriage thingy...

It's pretty amazing that an anti-bullying measure, which also protects based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression, was passed in West Virginia of all places...and here is how it happened.

A bi-national couple's deportation case has been dropped by the Immigration & Customs Enforcement. Of course, if DoMA were repealed (or never existed), these types of cases would not be necessary. Christmas just got a lot better for these guys.

Elizabeth Warren
Another GOP family values, anti-gay politician gets caught. This happens so much that it's really news when it DOESN'T happen.

Here is yet another dose of GOP family values hypocrisy. When will they learn? Honestly... P.S. I swear I'm taking joy in this. It's actually rather sad when you think of these people's families and such.

I have been supporting Elizabeth Warren (in case you haven't noticed) because of her work on financial reform but wondered where she stood on LGBT issues. She answered that question.

That gay soldier who was booed at the Tea Party debate is getting a much better response from his comrades. Seriously, I wouldn't mess with a guy with biceps like that even if he was a million miles away.

Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ)
A California gay rights group has gotten the go ahead to start collecting signatures to repeal Proposition 8. The clock is now ticking...

Further proving that there is hope in the next generation, even young Republicans are on-board with LGBT equality, including marriage equality.

Also in evolving views, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), who originally voted FOR DoMA, is now supporting the Respect for Marriage Act (which would repeal DoMA).

And lastly, "Absolutely Fabulous" takes on the Kardashians.
