Obama and Clinton Meet UPDATED

According to news breaking moments ago, Obama and Clinton are meeting at this very moment in a home in the Washington D.C. area.There are no details available. But I thought you’d like to know.UPDATE:It is now thought that the “home in DC” was Hillary’s place. It is believed that Hillary has snuck out the back of the house and she and Barack are going to meet somewhere quite.And no, I am not making this up.UPDATE (8:50PM CST):It appears that Obama was in the DC area today with the press group that is assigned to him.

Lesbians Smooching at Ball Game Disturbs Fan

…. in Seattle.

last week, a lesbian complained that an usher at Safeco Field asked her to stop kissing her date because it was making another fan uncomfortable.The incident has exploded on local TV, on talk radio and in the blogosphere and has touched off a debate over public displays of affection in generally gay-friendly Seattle….As the Mariners played the Boston Red Sox on May 26, Sirbrina Guerrero and her date were approached in the third inning by an usher who told them their kissing was inappropriate, Guerrero said.The usher, Guerrero said, told them he had received a complaint from a woman nearby who said that there were kids in the crowd of nearly 36,000 and that parents would have to explain why two women were kissing.

Hmmm, that’s a tough one. How about “Well, maybe they are in love….” (Even if it is just as likely that they are actually in lust … who could know?)source
