Right Wing Round-Up

  • Good As You smartly notes that at least some marriage equality opponents are now “coming out and admitting the truth: That rallies designed to keep gay folks from legally marrying are NOT ‘protect marriage’ rallies — they are ANTI GAY RALLIES!”
  • A new Media Matters analysis finds that in the week following Justice David Souter’s retirement announcement, significantly more Republican members of Congress, especially on Fox News, participated in daytime cable news discussions about or touching on the Supreme Court than did Democratic members of Congress and Obama administration officials.
  • Also via Media Matters, we have to wonder just what the deal is with Bill O’Reilly’s obsession with “interspecies marriages.”
  • Rob Boston tells Bill Donohue to calm down because “Angles and Demons” is only a movie.
  • Eric Boehlert chronicles how, since switching parties, Arlen Specter has been getting a taste of the GOP Noise Machine.
  • Finally, I have to say that I am rather surprised that the Illinois Family Institute actually issued a correction after Box Turtle Bulletin pointed out that they were wrong about the APA’s definition of “sexual orientation.”
