What’s Brewing: Transgender woman takes on Koran-burning pastor in Amarillo mayor’s race

Posted on 25 Feb 2011 at 8:39am

Your weekday morning blend from Instant Tea:

1. A transgender woman is running for mayor in Amarillo. Sandra Dunn (above) says her friends encouraged her to run to oppose another candidate, David Grisham, the whacko preacher who serves as director of Repent Amarillo. If you’ll remember, Repent Amarillo called for a boycott of Houston after the city elected a lesbian mayor, and Grisham attempted to burn a Koran on the anniversary of 9/11 last year. So, what does Grisham have to say about his transgender opponent? “I’m not sure that’s who you want as mayor,” he said. “If they’re indecisive about who they are, are they indecisive about other issues?”

2. The hacktivists known as Anonymous took down one of the Westboro Baptist Church’s websites during a live radio debate on Thursday (watch video below). That’s assuming the guy with the British accent is really a member of Anonymous, and not just a ringer from Westboro Baptist trying to generate more publicity. For all we know, he could be The Jester.

3. Singer Jesse J, who some are calling “the next Lady Gaga,” says she’s bisexual. Jesse who?
