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.

So, it was only a matter of time before Vice magazine, the arbiters of all things desperately cutting edge, would deign to make some kind of commentary on Occupy Wall Street. Align themselves with the 99 percent–an earnest movement aimed at bringing forth a more equitable model of wealth and social justice? Forget it. Instead, the Terry Richardson-loving, snark-crackling mag went and staged an “American Psycho”-themed fashion shoot at Zuccotti Park, embedding well-coiffed male models among real-life protesters. And as if that weren’t offensive and sigh-inducing enough, the irony-blasting folks had one model sporting this “suck 1 percent of my dick” sign. Rather tacky, no? [Vice]

Completely Superficial: Judging The Presidential Candidates’ Style

I’m not going to sit here and tell you who to vote for, or attempt to suss out an official Frisky-approved political platform. But what I can tell you? Who wore it best. Sure, most politicians don’t wear the most cutting edge looks, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t assess their outfits and judge their personal style. All opinions expressed are strictly non-partisan and based purely on the cut of their jibs and the comb of their hairs. Tell us who you think has the best look in the comments.

Michele Bachmann: People do find out [in my book] that I did not get asked to my senior prom.
Sean Hannity: Well, neither did I. And nobody would go with me.
Michele Bachmann:  Well, in my time, girls didn’t ask boys to prom. If you didn’t get asked, you didn’t go.
Sean Hannity: Yeah, well let me tell you, I have a 13-year-old son. Those days have changed big time.
Michele Bachmann: And our girls are not allowed to do that in our house. They have to wait for the boy to call.

Facepalm. Wilma Flintstone Rep. Michele Bachmann explains on “Hannity” that her daughters have to sit around and wait for a boy to call. I don’t even think kids these days use the telephone to ask each other out on dates, but that’s besides the point. What kind of message is Bachmann sending to her daughters? Eh, probably the same message she sent when she got up and served all the men water at a GOP debate.

In slightly-more-entertaining news, nobody wanted to go with Sean Hannity to prom. Oh, whyever not, ladies? [Jezebel via Think Progress] Keep reading »

Priceless. Absolutely priceless. Michele Bachmann met an eight-year-old boy named Elijah at a South Carolina book signing, who informed her, “My mommy — Miss Bachmann, my mommy’s gay but she doesn’t need fixing.” Why does anyone need to call her a lyin’ ass bitch when you can just call her a bigot?  [YouTube via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Because being accused of an affair is apparently worse than being accused of sexually harassing a bunch of women, Herman Cain has suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Cain told supporters on Saturday he is leaving the race over “the continued distraction.” (Weirdly, the announcement came one day after his campaign launched a laughably bizarre “Women For Cain” website.) And regarding the actual accusation by Atlanta woman Ginger White that they’ve been boinking for 13 years? He continued his tactic of deny, deny, deny. Keep reading »
