The Wrap-Up: December 28, 2011

Michelle Obama

The assault on voting rights claims another victim.

It's incredibly ironic and hypocritical that the people claiming that Michelle Obama (known in part for her beauty and fitness) is fat are a bunch of overweight men who need to be banned from all fast food joints. What gentlemen they are...

A lot is being said about Ron Paul, these claims of racism/homophobia, and whether or not he wrote the articles in question. Here is an interesting take on all of this.

Lucille Ball
Signs may be showing up that Rick Santorum will drop out of the race after Iowa.

In case you aren't aware, there is a pretty substantial de facto "Gay Tax" on same-sex couples (which is even higher for those raising kids). Mysteriously, all of those tax-cutting Republicans are silent on this issue.

Mitt Romney came up with a far better (and more appropriate) metaphor for Newt Gingrich's Virginia failure than Newt's "Pearl Harbor" comment.

Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC)
The New Hampshire legislature is pushing back a possible vote on (among other things) repealing marriage equality in the state...but just barely.

In a hypothetical match-up against Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich's prospects are looking increasingly bleak.

There is yet even more bad news for Gingrich as he has been quoted as supporting Mitt Romney's health care plan (which many conservatives see as the foundation of Obama's health care plan).

With 2012 being a big election year, there are some people who will be looking to make their political mark.

And lastly, Ron Paul thinks everything is unconstitutional.
