Thanks to Team Rape, Most Americans Consider Themselves Pro-Choice Again

Just six months ago, a Gallup poll found that the number of people who call themselves "pro-choice" was only 41%, a record low.

There Are Too Many Lady Senators to Fit in the Bathroom at One Time

One of the cliché (but kinda true) "pros" of being a dude is that women always have to wait in line FOREVER to use the bathroom.

Lena Dunham's Pro-Obama Ad Brought to You by Russia & Satan, Says Minnesota Republican

But, according to national polls and some battleground state surveys, that's… »10/26/12 10:25am10/26/12 10:25am

Whose 'October Surprise' Will Be More Shocking, Gloria Allred's or Donald Trump's?

Donald Trump has been harumphing about a "bordering on gigantic" Obama-related bombshell that will "possibly" change the course of the entire election, but no one's been paying him that much attention, since dude tends to harumph a lot.

Clear Eyes, Zero Class: Mitt Romney's Now Selling Plagiarized Friday Night Lights Crap

After Mitt Romney began shamelessly ganking the signature Friday Night Lights line "Clear eyes, full hearts, AMERICA, can't lose," the creator of the beloved Texas football drama wrote the campaign a letter asking them to stop plagiarizing him (truth be told, he should have also requested Romney stop being a dork.… »10/22/12 4:20pm10/22/12 4:20pm

Billboard Criticizing Mormon Stance on Blacks and Gays to Follow Mitt Romney's Bus Around for Awhile

Mitt Romney is a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a religion viewed by many Americans unfamiliar with the faith as a strange tradition shrouded in secrecy and characterized by the sort of perky friendliness that can only be concealing a horrible Stepford-style robot factory.
