Six More Weeks

(Cartoonist - Rob Rogers)

In other news, it didn't become official until this afternoon but Hillary Clinton has finally been named the winner of the Iowa caucus. Clinton is the first woman to win.

Meanwhile, Greenwald's The Intercept is a garbage fire that was duped by a staff-writer who fabricated stories and even created fake sources. Shocking, I know.

And finally, the so-called Log Cabin Republicans are now running pro-Sanders, anti-Clinton ads that, as Zack Ford at ThinkProgress points out, aren't exactly honest.

It’s true that she didn’t support marriage equality back then, but as the Advocate pointed out, one of the clips from the ad is actually from her 2004 speech opposing a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

The Washington Blade also pointed out that Sanders defended his own 2006 opposition to marriage equality in the same interview the ad borrows from. [...]

Sanders has been lauded for opposing the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, but his position at the time was to allow states to set their own marriage law. This would have allowed states to continue banning same-sex marriage, and the “states’ rights” talking point would be used by opponents of marriage equality well through the 2000s.
