Mitt Romney Didn't Oppose Gay Adoptions As Governor [Updated]

Republican Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney's position on gay adoption is vague and a bit confusing. The former Governor told Wolf Blitzer in the clip below from 2008 that he didn't oppose gay adoption in Massachusetts, and didn't want to stop the courts from letting gay adoption go forward. [Update] Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul emails BuzzFeed: "Gov. Romney believes a family with one mother and one father is the ideal setting to raise a child. That doesn't mean adoption by other parents -- whether they be single or same-sex -- should be outlawed. States have to make decisions that are in the best interests of children, and where possible that should be in a home with one mother and one father."

The Celebrity Apprentice Goes To Medieval Times

James Lipton! Sword-Fighting! Boobs! Medieval Times!

AMC Releases Poster For The New Season Of "Mad Men"

And it's ...Don Draper staring wistfully at mannequins? At least we have more to speculate about in this poster than the previous ad campaign: Does this mean Don actually misses Betty? Why is the lady mannequin naked? Is Don about to go all Andrew McCarthy on us and run away with a department store mannequin that he imagines to look like Kim Cattrall? (I hope so.)

Rick Santorum Sought To Downplay Book's Most Controversial Elements In 2006 Campaign

Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum is not one to back down from the controversial things he's said in his career. But in 2006 campaign the former Senators website featured a section "I heard around the water cooler," which sought to quell the firestorm surrounding his 2005 book It Takes a Family. Whether it was comparing abortion to slavery, saying unwed mothers shouldn't go to college, or saying diversity was bad, the document shows another Santorum attempt to relate to voters and play down his partisan image in 2006.
