Sidebar: The donkey's name is Michael Leisner. He's 65 years old and works as real estate broker. And, oh, he's a homophobe and Christian nut job.
Update, Aug. 15. He's dead. Michael died in his car of a heart attack on Aug. 11 while waiting in his car for his sons to finish playing tennis near his Andover, Minnesota home. Hate is not good for the ticker.
