Every presidential Election Day follows a set routine. First, we hyperventilate about results from Dixville Notch. Then Fox News, consummate professionals that they are, make their first in a series of reports on a black man standing outside of a polling place in Philadelphia.
What is he doing? And why is he doing it while black?

The gay Tea Party movement was apparently out in force at Saturday's spectacularly well-attended Tea Party Diversityfest in Philadelphia…
Apparently, Uni-Tea wasn't only bridging the racial gap. Brendan Kissam and Matt Hissey wandered into the event carrying signs that said "proud gay conservative" and "freedom is fabulous." They said they were "the Gayborhood's envoy to the tea party."
The pair said the tea party is welcoming to their minority group, too. "The Tea Party is accepting of everybody," said Hissey, adding that "Skin color diversity — that's not real diversity. Everyone here has a different life experience." Hissey recognized that the tea party "might be against gay marriage," but that's ok, he said, because he is too.
I know what you're thinking: Two people?!
Well, Philly is a pretty big gay center, so that goes a long way toward explaining the surprisingly large turnout.

Okay, so President Obama threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals/Philadelphia Phillies games today, and, uh, let's just keep the commentary to, Uh oh…
Okay, first of all, the guy is wearing a White Sox hat and a Nationals jacket, so right off the bat, WTF. Second of all, Sheeeeeesh! I know he's better versed at throwing the rock around on the baseball court, but don't they use arms in basketball?
Say what you will about Bush, at least he knew how to get one across the plate…
Though, that was pretty much all he knew how to do.

Okay, it's not official yet, but it's looking really good for Oscar Goodman — the Independent current mayor of Las Vegas, Philadelphia native, and celebrity spokesperson for Bombay Gin — to announce his next big move in the near future. And announce it in style…
"I envision making my announcement to run for governor with showgirls on my arm. If [the people] don't like it, they can vote for someone else. And if I'm governor, I'll cavort with showgirls and I'll keep drinking my gin and betting on anything that moves," Goodman told the Philadelphia Inquirer, his hometown paper. "I won't change!"
You had me at "run for governor with showgirls on my arm." You had me at "run for governor with showgirls on my arm."
