A GLBT KINDA DAY! | A Damsel in Distress

So much happening today, so much to choose from, where to start!

Oh, let's begin with former Baptist Minister, former Arkansas Governor, former Big & Tall Shops fashion plate Mike Huckabee's astonishing rant on "The View" that basically implied that the GLBT minority in America hasn't been beaten, fire-hosed and killed enough -- yet -- to qualify for full citizenship's equal rights.

Then let's move on to California's Supreme Court today accepting to hear the legal challenges to Prop 8. Uh-oh.

Finally, in our third segment, let's close with 7-year-old child musical prodigy Emily Bear's appearance on "Ellen."

It's everything bigots hate: informed intelligence, talent, competence of a high order, creativity, sensitivity and the Younger Demographic who sees anti-gay bigots for what they are and, as soon as they're 18 and can vote, will send the fundie theocrats trying to Taliban America reeling.

It's ALL good, but the best part starts at 3:50.
