“I think Miranda Hobbes would rather shoot herself in the head than vote for Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is so terrible on women’s issues. I know that there are women who support him, and it’s hard for me to understand, but certainly Miranda nor Carrie nor Charlotte nor Samantha, none of those women would ever vote for Mitt Romney. They would do something terrible first before they would ever vote for Mitt Romney.”

Some people believed that there was no need for women to vote, because a wife’s political position should always be the same as her husband’s. Other people thought that if middle-class white women exercised this right the same way as white men, the next thing you know they would be doing crazy stuff like wearing pants and not making dinner. Equality’s a bitch, y’all. The brave women who pushed for the 19th Amendment were called “suffragettes” and they battled some pretty nasty stereotypes.

And as if you needed another reminder … GO VOTE!
Whether you’re a sugar daddy or a 14-year-old girl, you are probably pretty excited that Justin Bieber exists. But since chances are slim you’ll ever get to run your paws through his silky hair, you’ll have to be content with “Just-In Beaver,” the Justin Bieber sex doll. He’s got two “love holes” and an “inflatable cock.” Here’s hoping he’s washable, too. Just-In Beaver is on sale for the bargain price of $25.56, so get him while he lasts. (Seeing as he just turned 18, I don’t suspect he lasts very long.)
