Utah: One County left: Piute

by naraht

The Utah County (yes there is a county in Utah called Utah) Clerk's office has given in and will perform Same Sex Marriages. In addition the County Clerk's offices in Box Elder County and San Juan County haves said that they will also be issuing Licenses to same sex couples. This leaves exactly one county that hasn't said they will issue Licenses to Same Sex Couples: Piute.

Poll

Do you feel sorry for the Piute County Clerk?

While we have all been celebrating Minnesota joining the ranks of Marriage Equality, a nation that most of us weren't expecting now has Marriage Equality nationwide!

Brazil's Supreme Court ruled in 2011 that Homosexuality could not be used as a basis of denying a marriage certificate, but it has fallen to the State Courts to require that all notaries in that state issue marriage certificates equally. More than a third of the state courts had done so, but some like Rio de Janerio had done it piecemeal.

However today things changed again http://www.globalpost.com/...

The National Council of Justice, which oversees the Brazilian judicial system and is headed by the chief justice of the Supreme Court, said government offices that issue marriage licenses had no standing to reject gay couples.
Now this can still be appealed to the Brazilian Supreme Court, but observers have found that the likelihood of an appeal being upheld are fairly small.

I live about a mile outside of Wynn's District (MD-4) (In MD-08, Chris Van Hollen(D)) and will likely be working as an election judge for the Special Election when they hold it.

Therefore, some of $1 Million dollars that the State of Maryland will be spending will likely end up in my pocket. What should I do with it?

How could the Democrats have gotten candidates for the 2008 presidential nominiation as divisive as the Republicans have?

Can anyone come up with a previous example of success in what Senator Lieberman is preparing to do if he loses his primary?

By this, I'm looking for an incumbent senator losing their party primary and running as an independent and winning in the General Election. I know that Senator Javits is sort of an example of it NOT working (He lost the Republican Primary and ran in the General on the Liberal line) but New York's electoral fusion isn't typical.

Any ideas?

Most Boring State for 2006 election?

by naraht

I've seen a lot of great writeups on interesting races and opportunities for the Democratic Party for 2006. 50 or more races in the house, at least 10 in the Senate and a good number of the Gubenatorial races. But it does seem occasionally that a few states get left out.

Those states seem to those where the Democrats either have no chance (few enough in these days of Bush's horrible ratings) or are not expected to lose any seats or are expected to gain without much help from us in the blogosphere. But what is the most boring state...

There are two different ways of looking at the possible Republican nominee in 2008. The first is to see who the possible Candidate is that you can most live with. For example in 1992, most Democrats would definitely said that they would rather live with GHWB as opposed to Pat Buchanan.

However, the other possible way is "Which candidate do I think would do worst against a likely Democratic Presidential Nominee?" But that standard Buchanan would have been a much better Republican Nominee for Democrats who wanted to win the presidency (The results of a Dukakis-Buchanan race would be interesting)

Which of the possible Republican Candidates do we as Democrats want as the Republican Nominee in 2008. By this, I'm looking for who would be most likely to lose to a Democratic Candidate of your choice.

According to several ness sources, "Even if he  [Keyes] loses, he says he is staying right here in Illinois to rescue republican voters from their "corrupt" party leaders.

Keyes staying in Illinois should help keep the pot bubbling inside the Illinois Republican Party, keeping them from focusing on the Moderates. Also, it means that we in the DC suburbs where he lives don't have to listen to him any more!

*Funny* Obama -Keyes Debate Poll

by naraht

The Illinois Leader, the home of all coverage in illinois favorable to Alan Keyes (Because no one else in the state things there is any) has a laugh out loud deliberately funny webpoll on the first radio debate between Keyes and Obama. As of right now you can vote at http://www.illinoisleader.com and if they've changed to a different webpoll, you can still see the results of this one at http://www.illinoisleader.com/poll/pollview.asp?p=236 .

One of the choices on what will happen in the first debate
"Alan Keyes will reveal that not only is Jesus Christ not going to vote for Obama but that Christ has also decided to intervene on Keyes' behalf"

1000 Iraq KIA - No alaskans

by naraht

Its funny, I've seen on two separate newsstories about the 1000 KIA in Iraq that there have been soldiers killed from every state except Alaska. It seems to strike the reporters as odd.
