north carolina advances anti-abortion bill

“From the other side of the aisle I hear the conversation being about ‘free this is free, we need to take it and it’s free and we need to do it now’ and that’s sort of the fundamental message that my brain receives. Now, my brain being a man’s brain sort of thinks differently, because I say, well, it’s not if it’s free is it really free because I say in my brain there’s a cost to this.”

Maine’s Republican Party, aka the manly party of manly men, has a star amongst them: State Representative Ken Fredette, who thinks the Democratic party is comprised of girly-men and actual girls (EW!) who just don’t understand how health care costs work. We can’t just give things away for free, you dumb broads! How about don’t worry your pretty little heads about finances and leave that to the menfolk? [Talking Points Memo]

According to a Russian bill that passed by a unanimous vote, it would be illegal to tell children that gay people exist or that homosexuality is socially equal to heterosexuality. The bill has passed Russia’s lower house of parliament and now heads to its upper house, where it is expected to pass. President Vladimir Putin supports signing the bill into law.

Don’t worry, Russia! If you pretend things don’t exist, they just disappear on their own! Keep reading »

Even the prime minister of Australia is not immune of objectification and body-snarking: at a political fundraising dinner Julia Gillard was reduced to the significance of the quail served up for dinner with an absurdly offensive menu item listed “Julia Gillard Quail – small breasts, huge thighs, and a big red box” as the main entrée.

Your Baby Name Choice Reveals Your Political Leanings

baby names

Choosing a baby name may be one of the hardest things a parent has to do. I’d say it’s harder than potty training — which has become my nemesis right now. Giving your kid a name, whatever name it is, is the one single word your kid is going to hear for the rest of their life. It’s a BIG deal. It also says a whole lot about you as a parent. It even reveals your political leanings.

Conservatives tend to choose a certain kind of name, and liberals prefer names with a certain kind of sound. Before I reveal, let’s take guesses. Let’s think about the kid names Leo and Kevin. If you had to choose who belongs to the liberal parent and who belongs to the conservative parent, what would you guess? Read more on The Stir…

The Massachusetts Legislature’s Public Health Committee is considering a new bill to ease parental consent rules for abortion. According to Planned Parenthood League Of Massachusetts, young women in Massachusetts under age 18 need to acquire written permission from a parent or guardian to obtain an abortion; if she’s unable to discuss this sensitive subject with a parent, she can get permission from a judge. But this new bill would allow young women to get permission from a doctor, nurse, or family member over age 25 instead of the court.

Additionally, a Democratic state rep in MA filed another bill including these same provisions, but would also lower the current age of consent  to 16.

This week, the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee tackled the scourge of sexual violence in the military and voted to remove military top brass from their ability to overturn convictions for sexual assault. Yet Republican Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri said the hearings were “stunningly bad,” as military leaders were unprepared to respond to the questions from senators and unwilling to consider many suggested changes.

Here are five things you should know about what went down this week as Congress took substantive steps to eradicate the military’s sexual assault problem. Keep reading »

To: Tour Coordinators
Subject: Hot D Intern Prospect

One of my friends from college, [sic] just graduated and is trying to intern on the Hill this summer. She is a smoke show from FSU, but she happens to be a Dem so I’m having trouble finding her a spot. She’s a smart girl and has worked for FEMA. She’s real cool and gets along with everyone. If one your interns falls through or you can squeeze another in, give her a shot.

Florida ties, from Tampa.

This is an email sent from a House Republican staffer to a congressional email group. I’m not sure whether I should be more offended by the misused comma or the fact this person trumpets his prospective intern candidate is “hot” and a “smoke show” (which also means hot). Just kidding, it’s not the comma. Sigh. Yes, we all know that’s the most important about a summer intern: whether she’s pretty to look at. [Roll Call]

Conservative Political Action Conference Draws Major Leaders From The Right

Though Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house, it is Tea Party darling Rep. Michele Bachmann who’s cast off into the northern country’s snowy forest in this summer’s smoldering romance tale as the inspiration for Fires of Siberia.  Publisher Badlands Unlimited describes the book as:

“…an old-fashioned bodice ripper romance that brings the heat for the 2013 summer beach reading season. Presidential candidate Danielle Powers, full of firebrand pluck and red state sex appeal, has the country in a tizzy. But on an international tour to beef up her foreign policy experience, disaster ensues—her plane explodes over Siberia. Miraculously, Danielle survives, along with one other passenger—a mysterious stranger named Steadman Bass.”

Author Trey Sager confirmed Rep. Bachmman herself is the inspiration. And this, my friends, is the cover:…  Keep reading »
