The Wrap-Up: December 21, 2011

Jonathan Capehart
Jonathan Capehart pinned an op-ed discussing how some in the GOP (*cough* Rick Perry *cough*) think we're electing a pope instead of a president.

Members of the Pennsylvania state legislature have formed an LGBT Equality Caucus.

First the "Family Research Council" gives Rep. Joe "Deadbeat Dad" Walsh (he owes $117,00 in child support) a family award, and now the "American Family Association" supports Newt "Serial Adulterer" Gingrich in his GOP nomination bid. If it wasn't official before, it certainly is now: these groups have zero interest in families.

A Wisconsin Supreme Court justice is on the hot seat when it was discovered he received free services from Gov. Scott Walker AND ruled in Walker's favor on his anti-union law. I'm thinking this surprises no one.

Former Half-Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK)
Politifact's "Lie of the Year" goes to congressional Democrats. I guess Republicans can't win it all the time.

The scourge unleashed upon us by John McCain (a.k.a. Sarah Palin) continues to tease her supporters about a possible 2012 run. They honestly need to give up on her because she's just doing it for attention and money.

Yale and Columbia universities announced they will reimburse gay employees who pay more taxes because the federal government doesn't recognize their marriages. Of course if DoMA were repealed, this wouldn't be an issue.

President Barack Obama
In a disgusting abusive of power and strike against free speech, a Florida priest was removed while speaking (perfectly calmly and well-mannered) to a city council about someone who was forcibly removed while speaking to that city council for something the city council (apparently) got wrong. If that sentence sounded confusing, the video pretty much explains what you need to know.

Mitt Romney gave us some more evidence then he is on the side of Wall Street and not the side of Main Street.

President Obama's numbers are on the rise as Congressional Republicans' numbers are...not.

And lastly, Rick "Google" Santorum continues to unwittingly make a joke of himself.
