Monica Marquez gets a hand putting on her judicial robe from sister Christine Marquez-Hudson, left, and Sheila Barthel, Marquez's partner.

Oprah threw me a curve ball during her recent Barbara Walters interview.¬† I didn’t expect her to say that she and Gayle have sex with each other but I did not realize that I’m unsure of how to refer to myself.¬† Am I “a lesbian” or “lesbian?”¬†¬†

Responding to Walters probing, Oprah stood straight, ‚ÄúI have said we are not gay enough times. I‚Äôm not lesbian‚Ķ I‚Äôm not even kinda lesbian.”¬†¬†¬†

So, which is it?¬† I’m left puzzled.

Now for the real story.¬†¬† Colorado’s newest Supreme Court Justice is a lesbian, and she has a partner who publicly helps to dress her.¬†¬†

Actually, wouldn’t it have been better to publish a photo taken post-ceremony?¬†¬† “Justice Marquez is publicly undressed by her lesbian love, Sheila Barthel – as her sister watches.”¬†¬† Love it.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 25, 2008¬†¬† National Enquirer Names Brad Hanson As Palin’s Secret Lover


None of these stories alone means anything but the cumulative effect is to show one very odd and messed up family.

Here is the latest on Sarah Palin and her family from the National Enquirer :   CLICK HERE

The new story claims that Bristol Palin was caught on video tape smoking pot . . . like mother like daughter . . . what else is there to do in Alaska . . . oh yeah . . . guess that explains all of the babies too.

If you’d like to read the over the top claims that her mother-in-law filed against the State of Alaska, you can read the case decision here:¬†¬† CLICK

The facts from the Supreme Court state that on¬† November¬† 27,¬† 1993, Blanche Kallstrom (Todd¬†Palin’s¬†mother)¬†and¬† other¬† members¬† of¬† the public attended a social function and¬† dance¬† at¬†Jakes¬† Place,¬† an¬† alcohol abuse transitional¬† care¬† facility¬† in Dillingham.¬† The lights at the facility had been dimmed¬† for¬† the dance.¬†¬† Non-alcoholic drinks were available¬† to¬† guests¬† in¬† the kitchen¬† area¬† adjacent to the dance floor.¬†¬† During¬† the¬† dance, Kallstrom went to the kitchen at the request of her young¬† cousin to¬† get¬† a¬† drink¬† for nine-year-old Lori Dee Wilson.¬†¬†Kallstrom poured¬† a¬† drink from a pitcher sitting on the counter which¬† she believed¬† to¬† contain fruit juice and gave it to¬† Lori¬† Dee.¬†¬† In fact,¬† the¬† pitcher contained a lye-based caustic detergent¬† that caused¬† severe, permanent internal injuries to Lori Dee when¬†she drank it.

So is the lawsuit about the injries to Lori?  No No No . . . poor Kallstrom suffered the injury here!  Yes, Kallstrom had the nerve to claim that she was injured and sustained severe shock and emotional distress because she stupidly gave lye to a child to drink. 

Oh and Blanche Kallstrom is married to Robert Kallstrom (Todd’s stepfather) who was involved in an allegation of sexual harassment.¬† Check that out here in a decision involving unemployment benefits.¬† CLICK.
