The Phoenix is reporting that notorious ex-gay activist and homophobe the Rev. Donnie McClurkin is headlining the City of Boston’s “GospelFest,” scheduled for Sunday, July 18 at City Hall Plaza. Here’s the link: http://thephoenix.com/Boston/n… How can this be happening after the controversy McClurkin touched off when he appeared at an Obama campaign event in South Carolina in 2008? The move significantly cost Obama in the LGBT community. The Rev. Irene Monroe is calling on the LGBT community and our allies to come out and boo if the City doesn’t find a way to ease the bigoted Rev. McClurkin off the stage. The Anti-Violence Project of Massachusetts is already endorsing Monroe’s call.

John Oliver explores the first World Cup in Africa. (If anyone can figure out how to embed this clip, please do in the comments!). Daniel Kurtzman: “Did you hear about the change of command in Afghanistan? General McChrystal fired for insubordination, and he’ll be punished with a $3 million book deal.” -David Letterman “So, the bad news for McChrystal is he got fired for insulting the President. But the good news is, Fox said, ‘We’ll hire him.’” -Jay Leno “Well, folks, Sarah Palin has admitted she tried marijuana several years ago, but she did not like it. She said it distorted her perceptions, impaired her thinking, and she’s hoping that the effects will eventually wear off.” -Jay Leno “President Obama is being criticized now. Here’s the problem. The British Petroleum guy, Tony Hayward, was on his yacht recently. Everybody thought, whoa, this idiot. I mean, the Gulf of Mexico is turning to asphalt and the British Petroleum guy is relaxing on his yacht. When he heard about that, President Obama was so angry, he missed a putt.” -David Letterman “Tony Hayward on a yacht. Where are the Somali pirates when you need them?” -Jay Leno “In his defense, Tony twittered [...]
Yesterday’s Democratic Senate caucus meeting – combined with Majority Leader Reid’s push on this issue, combined with President Obama’s leadership, combined with a clear demand by the public for action – has given comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation a major boost as we head towards the 4th of July recess. Clearly, at this point, there’s a better path to 60 votes in the U.S. Senate for comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation than ever before. We are that close to making history, let’s make sure we seize this moment! With all that in mind, a recent national survey by Al Quinlan of Greenburg Quinlan Rosner Research has potentially powerful implications for the 2010 elections, providing yet more evidence that climate legislation – despite a fallacious “mainstream media” narrative arguing otherwise – is actually good politics. The key findings are threefold (note: the document talks about strategy for the Democratic Party, but could apply to Republicans as well): Small businesses “are among America’s most popular entities,” with an eye-popping 44:1 favorable to unfavorable ratio (“the highest we have ever seen in our polling on any topic”) Generating support from small business owners, for either political party, is a key to [...]
