After Republican senators announced they would unequivocally not “advise and consent” to any nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court that President Obama seeks to appoint, I wrote in my Feb. 18 column that “by taking such an approach, the GOP has handed liberals a golden opportunity … Court experts, listen up: There are 13 appellate court districts in the United States and only four of the 13 are considered conservative, meaning that nine — or two-thirds — are comprised of liberal-leaning judges. When an appellate court rules, their position becomes the law of the land, unless SCOTUS agrees to hear, and then overturns, the case. And, if the court agrees to hear a case, and is split four-four — because of Scalia’s vacancy — the appellate court ruling stands.”

Jason and I went to a heterosexual wedding last weekend. (I wonder if heterosexuals say, “I went to a gay wedding last weekend”?) Anyway, it was the first one we’ve been to since our own wedding. We were honored to be asked to be a part of the ceremony itself; we got the opportunity to watch the faces of our friends, Jesse and Mark, as they went through a monumental change in their lives.

OK liberals, the Republicans, in their “wisdom,” have said they won’t consider President Obama’s nominee to replace Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. By taking such an approach, the GOP has handed liberals a golden opportunity — and shown their absolute stupidity, as they trip all over each other to enter the clown car and be the first to utter their obstructionism.

Nate Silver of The New York Times’ “FiveThirtyEight” website, and the most accurate of political pundits, attempted this week to bring sanity to the presidential race after this past Super Tuesday’s presidential primaries, with Donald Trump winning big on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton taking the Democratic side.

There seems to be yet another controversy in our community this week. The issue du jour is over HuffPost changing its dedicated LGBT site’s name from “GayVoices” to “QueerVoices.” While there are strong opinions on both sides of this issue, when I heard about it, it brought a smile to my face.
