    I almost shut it off after his little whiteboard demonstration but I'm glad I hung in there. I'd love to know who wrote the script for that.

    Some clever goose who was home-schooled, I'm sure. CitizenLink is a super conservative Christian group. I laughed out loud when the kid said"5 supreme court justices need a time out." Bless.

    From my understanding, CitizenLink is the media arm of Focus on the Family, hence the veiled comments about SCOTUS and government taking away your businesses... you know, because those icky gays keep suing florists and bakers when they can't force them to provide services for their nasty sodomite weddings. They just never come right out and say that in the video. Maybe because they were afraid the kid actor would hear the word and turn into one of us.

    OH! That explains so much! Of course they have to hide their true intentions, telling the truth about their beliefs isn't very popular for them right now. *tiny violin*

    We need to do one of those with a kid with two daddies, talking about democratic socialism.

    ^As a gay father, and I may be in the minority here, but I don't think anyone should use their children to further their agenda. I think, if anything, what can change people's perspective on shifts in non traditional families is adult children of gay parents coming out and saying "I'm ok. I'm a functional human being, and I was loved." I actually left a gay dad group here in austin because I felt icky when they wanted us to go to the capital with our kids and protest the adoption laws in Texas. It makes me feel weird, and I don't think it's my kid's job to fight political fights.

    Speaking of puke. This is from my FB feed. Not a friend of mine, but he posted on a friend's timeline. Of course FB has to tell me all about it.

    lol

    After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.

    I think HuffPo just dropped the mic.

    A dissenting view.

    One might conclude that Huffington Post's announcement amounts to the same Trump-style grandstanding they claim to condemn. On a larger level, they seem to miss the point that all politics is theater. Countless statements have tumbled forth from the mouth of candidates -- top-tier and third-tier -- that were made precisely to rile up the base, bait an opponent, get free play in the media, etc. The Huffington Post politics team has covered these stories, and will almost surely continue to do so -- even when they come from candidates who have a less of a shot at their party's nomination than Trump.
    I think I agree. I mean, all the other R candidates say stupid shit on a regular basis too. And they're really just playing into Trump's "outsider" narrative.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.
