Or was it meant to be tongue in cheek, and ridiculous on purpose?

Funny that she'd choose the duck, considering the notorious mating behaviours of the common mallard.

I'm amused that someone who (supposedly) doesn't believe in evolution is worried that evolution is going to cause us problems in the future...

May possibly vomit if Romney gets elected.

(To be fair I'd also vomit if Tony Abbott got elected in Australia's next election. At least Labour isn't as openly antagonistic when it comes to equal rights)

I like how their map is showing a lot of the battleground states leaning Democrat (enough that Obama is projected to win.) NC is leaning Republican, but that's not really that much of a surprise.

Congratulations Maryland, Maine, and Washington on legalising gay marriage; and Wisconsin for electing the US' first openly gay Senator.

Edit: And apparently Minnesota rejected a constitutional ban.

Denmark has not only ahd recognized (legal) gay partnerships for years - ealier this year churchweddings were made available/legal for gays as well (any priest who is opposed is not obliged to perform said ceremonies of course, but you can bring any priest in as a substitute, as far as I'm aware)

New Zealand's bill to allow gay marriage passed its first reading by 80-40, which means it is likely to become law.

That's pretty much the Maryland law.

I am embarrassed to say that I didn't know Baldwin was gay when I voted for. Not that I have a problem with it, just means I obviously needed more research if I missed such a "major" thing. Ah well, alls well that ends well.
