The Lipstick LobbyList 6.8.10

(Left) RIP Blanche.  From the NYT obituary:  "Rue McClanahan, who helped make 'The Golden Girls' a long-running television hit playing the saucy, man-devouring Southern belle Blanche Devereaux (in one scene she made a date at her husband’s funeral), died [last Thursday] in Manhattan. Unlike Blanche, she had no trouble admitting her age, 76."

The left/right collaboration on equal marriage expands: John D. Podesta, founder and president of the Center for American Progress, and Robert A. Levy, chairman of the Cato Institute are co-chairs the advisory board of the American Foundation for Equal Rights. This foundation helped launch the case of Perry v. Schwarzenegger, which is currently before a federal district court in California but is likely to be appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
