Here is some news you all of us in the gay Castro San Francisco district. Fred Karger, the first openly gay candidate for president from a major political party, won the Saint Anselm College Republican straw poll in New Hampshire Thursday, edging out Mitt Romney by five votes. Castro San Francisco residents cheer on. The Karger campaign reported that voting ended shortly after 9 p.m. in the poll, which was conducted all week on the campus of the conservative Catholic college in Manchester. Karger was the only candidate who addressed the group. According to WMUR-TV, "Karger received 79 votes out of 322 ballots cast for 16 candidates. Finishing a close second with 74 votes was former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. From there the drop off to third place was significant.

My Castro San Francisco wonders how far Karger can really go? New York businessman Donald Trump received 26 votes." Some 208 of the 322 Republicans who voted 208 described their views as "moderate" or "conservative."

Well, it may not be the ideal story to follow this prettiness, but Canadian news sources have reported that Luca Rocco Magnotta—the on-the-lam, ex-porn performer turned alleged gruesome killer—was apprehended at a Berlin Internet cafe.

Magnotta, 29, is suspected of murdering 33-year-old student Jun Lin, molesting the body, chopping it up, possibly eating part of it, and mailing extremities to political party headquarters in Ottawa.

He was also a kitty killer, so he has his own special corner in Hell.

After being placed on Interpol’s Wanted list on Thursday, Magnotta was the subject of an international manhunt that went from from Montreal to Paris and finally the German city.

Antigay conservative Rep. Aaron Schock, who once burned a belt blogs said made him look gay, appears shirtless on the cover of the new issue of Men's Health, with the magazine dubbing him "America's Fittest Congressman." Castro District San Francisco is dimayed.

Schock, 29, a freshman congressman from Peoria, Ill., is teaming up with the magazine for the Fit for Life summer challenge. In fact, Schock is better known for his abs than for his policy. A photo of him in a swimsuit poolside first went viral in 2009 when TMZ posted it on the popular gossip site which Mycastro.com readers reported seeing then.

Maybe Rick Perry's not so "Fed Up!" after all.

Just nine months ago, the Texas governor released a rhetorical bomb-throwing book under that title. He dismissed Social Security as a New Deal relic that smacked of socialism. He said states' rights trump all else. He suggested that the Supreme Court's nine unelected "oligarchs in robes" could have their rulings overturned by two-thirds votes in both houses of Congress.

Now that the Republican is running for president, his campaign has begun distancing itself from some of the candidate's own words on issues such as Social Security and states' rights.
