Michele Bachmann visited Jimmy Fallon last night and completely made me understand how other people love her. If I didn’t think her political beliefs were absolutely reprehensible, I’d like her! That Rick Perry “three” joke was a good one, you have to admit. [Gotcha Media]

Rep. Michele Bachmann is the only female candidate gunning for the Republican nomination. So you know I’ve got something to say about her taking on what the New York Observer cheekily referred to as “the traditional woman’s role” at a GOP Thanksgiving Family Forum on Saturday night and pouring glasses of water for all her male opponents. While Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and the other male candidates sat at their roundtable, she walked from glass to glass, filling them with water.

Now, let’s put on our Women’s Studies Major Hat and ask ourselves, BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?! Keep reading »

  • Kristen Schaal was on “The Daily Show” last night as Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent addressing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s latest WTF claim that she met a woman whose child became mentally retarded from the HPV vaccine. Which, as you may have heard, the medical community says is total BS. Wear headphones and there’s imagery that’s NSFW at the end, so make sure your boss isn’t a-lurkin’! [The Daily Show]
  • Virginia may lose all 22 clinics that provide abortion. What does that mean? People who can afford to will travel up to places like New York where abortion is much more accessible. And everyone who can’t afford it? If you have an unintended pregnancy, then it sucks to be you. [New York Times]
  • Journalist Lea Goldman at Marie Claire examines the “pinkification” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), when tons of products become pink and we’re told a portion goes to breast cancer research.

WTF: Michele Bachmann Invents The “Morning-After Abortion Pill”

I purposefully did not watch CNN’s Tea Party/Republican debate on Tuesday night because I knew I’d spend the whole time screaming at the TV. It was the right choice. (Like moi, you can read the transcript here.) Texas Governor Rick Perry wasted no time saying he made a “mistake” by requiring adolescent girls in Texas to be vaccinated against strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. And then Rep. Michele Bachmann chimed in to … well, lie on national television by smearing Plan B, which is the morning-after pill, as the “morning-after abortion pill.” You know, implying that it is the abortion pill, i.e. kills babies:
