The 5 Biggest Lies That Have Driven the Republican Party Right Off a Cliff

For anyone who’s been paying attention to the Republican Party for the last few years, if not couple of decades, the rise of someone like Donald Trump to the top of the party wasn’t really a matter of if it was going to happen — just when.  The truth is, the GOP was headed off […]

Roy Moore Lectured at a ‘School’ That Taught Women Shouldn’t be Permitted to Run for Office

Going beyond the disgusting sexual allegations against him, some people seem to forget that Roy Moore’s a fringe, unconstitutional religious whack job who has no business being in the Senate even if he wasn’t a child molester. Case in point, an article published by Think Progress on Thursday that showed Moore was a co-author of […]

Scott Walker Just Bungled Women’s Rights So Bad, He Might Have Blown His 2016 Chances

When it comes to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, I just don’t get it. I don’t follow Wisconsin politics extremely closely, but nothing I’ve heard about what’s going on there has really been positive. Even Walker’s job approval numbers are fairly low for someone who just won re-election this past November. Yet, for some reason, as a […]

Arizona Republicans Want Doctors to Tell Women That Some Abortions are Reversible

Words cannot express how sick and tired I am of having this debate over a woman’s right to have control over her own body. It’s absurd that we’re over 40 years removed from Roe v. Wade, where our Supreme Court ruled that every woman has the right to have an abortion, and we’re still having […]

Jon Stewart Loses It: The ‘F*ckery’ and ‘Dumbassery’ in Congress is Out Of Control (Video)

To say Jon Stewart was on fire last night would be an understatement. Stewart was as snarky and intense as I’ve seen him in quite some time while discussing the current shenanigans going on in the Senate over a bill aimed at curbing human trafficking. For those of you who might not know, currently there’s an anti-human trafficking […]

Virginia Republican: A Pregnant Woman Is Just A ‘Host’ For Fetus

I’m not sure why we’re still having a debate over abortion in 2015. The Supreme Court ruled on this issue over forty years ago. The debate over whether or not a woman has the right to have an abortion is over – conservatives lost. Yet here we are, still having to deal with this nonsense. It all […]

Patricia Arquette’s Oscar Speech Was Both Inspiring and Disheartening

In case you haven’t heard, Patricia Arquette gave a rousing speech at the Oscars last night about women’s rights. The moment she gave it, social media lit up with words of praise for the Oscar winner – and the praise was indeed warranted. She used part of her moment in the spotlight to make a powerful […]

Sen. Lindsey Graham Exposes Just How Little Many Republicans Care About Women’s Rights (Video)

When Republicans talk about women’s rights, I’m always amazed at their absurdity and ignorance. Where in the GOP platform is there anything that remotely seems “pro-women”? Sure, they claim many of their anti-abortion measures are about protecting women’s health (such as those passed here in Texas that set ridiculously stringent standards that abortion clinics must […]

ManBook: A “Men’s Rights” Facebook Full of Crazy

Thursday afternoon, my husband and I were perusing the Interwebz, actively avoiding going outside into the Arctic cold, when what to our wondering eyes should appear but a post from Jason Dye about “ManBook.” ManBook? What in the world is this, I wondered, and clicked the link. Here’s part of the incredibly lengthy introduction, from […]

Need An Abortion In Missouri? Rep. Rick Brattin Wants You To Get Permission First

Hey y’all, remember Todd Akin, the creepy guy who sunk his own campaign a couple of years back by making remarks about “legitimate rape“? Remember how we thought “well, certainly no Republican in his right mind would say something that stupid on the subject anytime soon”? Well, he’s not back just yet, but he seems […]
