U.S. Judge: Oklahoma Same-Sex Marriage is OK

U.S. Judge: Oklahoma Same-Sex Marriage is OK

On Tuesday Judge Terence Kern of the Northern District of Oklahoma ruled that the Sooner State’s amendment banning same-sex marriage is “an arbitrary, irrational exclusion of just one class of Oklahoma citizens from a governmental benefit” and violates the U.S. Constitution.

Don’t order the cake and orange blossoms just yet, though. The ruling is stayed pending appeal, so there won’t be gay nuptials in Muskogee any time soon.

Eliot Spitzer and Girlfriend Shock Jamaica

According to the New York Post, the Big Apple’s tabloid rag of record, amorous antics in a hot tub by former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and gal pal Lis Smith shocked fellow guests at a hotel in Jamaica’s Montego Bay.  At another hostelry, the Mayflower Hotel here in DC, Mr. Spitzer is better known as “Client Number 9.”

Lis Smith, former spokesperson for NYC’s new Mayor Bill DeBlasio, has recently been the constant companion of Mr. Spitzer who, for now, is wed to another. Ms. Smith worked on Mr. Spitzer’s failed campaign for New York City Comptroller.

Mark Sanford’s Path to Congress

Mark Sanford's Path to Congress

Disgraced Republican adulterer and ex-Governor Mark Sanford plans to run for Congress, but his path will be steeper than the Appalachian Trail. For one thing, his ex-wife may enter the race, and she has a lot more good will. On the other hand, Mr. Sanford has lots more experience in foreign affairs.

Facebook Refuseniks

Facebook Refuseniks

Facebook claims 200 million active users in the United States, about two-thirds of the population. “But the company is running into a roadblock,” writes Jenna Wortham. “Some people, even on the younger end of the age spectrum, just refuse to participate, including people who have given it a try.”

“The number of Americans who visited Facebook grew 10 percent in the year that ended in October — down from 56 percent growth over the previous year, according to comScore, which tracks Internet traffic.”

“One of Facebook’s main selling points is that it builds closer ties among friends and colleagues. But some who steer clear of the site say it can have the opposite effect of making them feel more, not less, alienated.”

Bristol and Levi Break Up, She Gives Back Baby

Bristol and Levi Break Up, She Gives Back Baby

Okay, we’re not sure about that last part, but Bristol Palin and Levi  Johnston are breakng up. The story is on all the official GOP media outlets: Fox News, Star magazine, People, Us Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Perez Hilton, The Hollywood Gossip, Celebrity Bride Guide, TMZ, The Insider, E! OnLine, and Access Hollywood.

A spokesman for  Ms. Palin’s mother, Governor Sarah Palin, declined comment; her father Todd is said to be in seclusion, cleaning firearms. Spurned Baby-Daddy and fiance Levi Johnston is just chillin.‘ Mr. Johnston’s mother, accused drug dealer Sherry Johnston, must also have an opinion, but she ain’t snitchin.’

There is no truth to the rumor that Bristol is giving her baby to Angelina Jolie. We know this because we just made that up. Reports that Octo-Mom is caring for the Palin-Johnston baby, Tripp, are likewise unfounded.

Our thoughts are with both families on this trying day. We hope the Palins can make some time to meet with their spiritual advisor,  Reverend Limbaugh.
