Today’s Lady News: Women Swing State Voters Back Obama Over Romney

Mitt Romney must think low-income women don’t really need breast exams. And those Pap smears that could detect cervical cancer? So frivolous! Surely that’s the only thing the GOP frontrunner could have meant when he told folks in Missouri he would “get rid of” Planned Parenthood, as well as a number of other programs, to reduce the debt. “The test is pretty simple. Is the program so critical, it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?” Romney said. “And on that basis of course you get rid of Obamacare, that’s the easy one. Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that. The subsidy for Amtrak, I’d eliminate that. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities.” Keep reading »

Okay, you’ve heard about how Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s name has also been associated with ”the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex,” right? (Thank you, Dan Savage). So why, why, why would supposed Rick Santorum supporters create an ad in which mud — suspiciously resembling the aforementioned excrement — is shot at the candidate by a faux-looking Mitt Romney? I mean, the picture on the Spreading Santorum site exactly resembles the mud spatterings portrayed in the ad. Unreal. [Huffington Post]

Fact checking time! Mitt Romney hit the campaign trail in Colorado last night and referred to emergency contraception/the morning-after pill as “abortive pills.” This could be because he or his team genuinely doesn’t understand that emergency contraception (Plan B) and the abortion pill (RU-486) are two completely different pills. Or it could be because he’s irresponsibly trying to totally conflate the two for political gain, which I am sure would shock — shock! — you coming from an anti-abortion politician.  (Is Mitt anti-abortion this week? I can never keep track!)

Let’s recap, very briefly: The morning-after pill prevents a pregnancy by stopping a woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs — which could be fertilized by the sperm and go implant in the uterus — as well as thinning the lining of a woman’s uterus so a fertilized egg cannot implant.  The RU-486 abortion pill, on the other hand, ends an existing pregnancy — as in, the fertilized egg has already implanted in the uterus and a fetus is growing. (I explain it all in more detail in this post.)

See? Two different things, Mitt. Keep reading »

Jon Rips Mitt Romney’s Tax Rate

Jon Stewart ripped into Mitt Romney’s tax return last night, and Elizabeth Warren showed up later to hammer home the point. “How can you justify making more in one day than the median American family makes in a year, while paying an effective tax rate of the guy who has to scan your shoes at the airport?” Stewart asked incredulously. Sure, as Romney pointed out, we might not want a candidate “who pays more taxes than he owes,” Stewart agreed. “No, but we might want one who thinks that’s wrong.” Added Warren later in the show, “Washington now works for those who can hire an army of lobbyists.” She pointed, to a booing audience, to a recent study showing the US’ top 30 corporations spend more on lobbying than their tax bill. “That is the investment, and that is what they see as the future.” Read more…

Today’s Lady News: “Women Aren’t Discriminated Against Anymore,” Says Romney Advisor

Today's Lady News
  • An advisor of Mitt Romney’s 2012 GOP presidential campaign, Robert Bork gave an interview with Newsweek where he criticized the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. “Women are a majority of the population now—a majority in university classrooms and a majority in all kinds of contexts,” Bork said. “It seems to me silly to say, ‘Gee, they’re discriminated against and we need to do something about it.’ They aren’t discriminated against anymore.” Oh my. Do people actually think this way? [The Daily Beast]

    Mitt Romney Implies God Made Man And Man Couldn’t Control His Boner

    Admittedly, we’re not the most religiously educated group of folks on the internet, but maybe someone should take away Mitt Romney’s Book of Mormon and give him a good hard spanking with it. An ABC News blogger notes that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Romney pointed out the large leaves in a couple’s front lawn and said, “Adam and Eve would not have looked as promiscuous if they had had leaves this big.” Um, correct us if we’re wrong, but Adam and Eve didn’t start rocking the foliage until after they ate the forbidden fruit and became ashamed of their nekkidness. For a man who wears his faith on his sleeve, Romney is scarily ignorant to God’s word. And second of all, if you’re the only man on Earth and you have sex with the only woman on Earth, how does that make you promiscuous? [ABC News] Keep reading »
