Bobby Jindal Thinks Birth Control Should Be Sold OTC So Women Won't…

Uh, what? Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal declaring his support for over-the-counter birth control. Was he blackmailed by an evil feminist militia?

Republican Horrified to Discover that Christianity Is Not the Only…

It's an honest mistake, assuming that the Constitution only protects your own personal megachurch faith. But one Louisiana Republican is learning the hard way that religious school vouchers can be used to fund education at all sorts of religious schools, even Muslim ones.

The Obama Administration Gets An Injection Of Estrogen

After more than a week of grumbling by women's groups that Hillary Clinton had damn well better not be the only woman in the Cabinet, along with grumblings by Latinos that they ought to be represented too, along comes the unsurprising news that Obama is, indeed, vetting women for Cabinet positions.

You Know It's Bad When Sarah Palin Makes More Sense Than Anyone

On what is rapidly turning into a day of major annoyances, it doesn't help that Sarah Palin seems to be making more sense than her fellow Republicans or that a guy who performed an exorcism on his college girlfriend might be her competition for the Republican nomination in 2012. Actually, what am I saying? Those might… » 11/12/08 10:00am 11/12/08 10:00am

"I Know: Barf." Truer Words Were Never Syndicated, Peggy!

"I know: Barf," writes Peggy Noonan in today's Journal, in the only good thing about having to do this crap the Friday before Memorial Day weekend and after another night of pointless inebriation.

Meet Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal! He's the frontrunner to be the running mate to the presidential candidate closest to death, so it will surely please you to know that, in his brief 36-year life, he has endured many difficult things, including the presence of SATAN HIMSELF.
