Politicians and peanut butter go together like infidelity and chocolate. Wait. Hmm. Oh, you know what I mean. Anyway, wannabe GOP presidential nominee Newt Gingrich is now supporting a pledge from a social conservative group called The Family Leader promising to be faithful to his wife. The candidate issued a statement saying he agrees with the following:

“I pledge to uphold the institution of marriage through personal fidelity to my spouse and respect for the marital bonds of other.”

Now, marital fidelity is a fine idea indeed for those who choose it; the thing is, he hasn’t. Gingrich is on Wife #3 and carried on an affair with Wife #2 while he lead the impeachment campaign against President Clinton. (Gingrich has also been accused of filing for divorce from Wife #1 while she was hospitalized for cancer, although his daughter disputes that claim.) Keep reading »

Abortion rights are being screwed with yet again! The Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act seeks to criminalize abortions based on the race or the sex of the fetus. That might sound good to some people: supporters of the bill quickly point out how many female fetuses are aborted in China, where there is a one-child policy in most areas and a nationwide preference for boys. However, a closer look at the bill reveals that it’s yet another tricky-dick move by abortion opponents to restrict abortion rights and make life more difficult for abortion providers.
