    Republicans Plan to Reach Out to Women By Avoiding Facts

    During this election year, you can expect to see a change in tone in many political ads. If you're wondering if this means that they'll finally be less dumb, I'm sorry to disappoint; they are, unfortunately, going to get even more dumb, because conservative strategists have decided that the best way to reach ladies is… » 5/12/14 6:15pm 5/12/14 6:15pm

    Sorry, Republicans. Young Women Will Never Vote For You.

    Stop me if you've heard this one: the Republican party can't help but notice that women don't like them much. Thankfully, they've got a fancy new consulting firm ON THE CASE. They've got pamphlets. They've got a polished message and nice fingernails. They've got pretty much the same plan they had after 2008, and, uh,… » 11/12/13 1:20pm 11/12/13 1:20pm

    All Top Public Officials From New Hampshire Are Now Women

    Old Cartoon Depicts Suffragettes as Saw-Toothed Crones

    Before women were granted the right to vote in 1918 and 1920 in the UK and US, respectively, there was a very, very long discussion about whether giving women the vote was a good idea in the first place. In fact, people were so adamantly against giving women the vote that the more artistically inclined of the… » 11/02/12 7:01pm 11/02/12 7:01pm

    Babies Kind of Hate Mitt Romney

    As November approaches, she'll become so ubiquitous that you'll swear you know her. You overhear her conversations with her husband, you see the concern on her face as she balances a baby on her hip while musing aloud about the future of Medicare.

    Tammy Baldwin Is a Totally Gross Lesbian for Daring Dance at Gay Pride…

    If all goes according to plan, come November, Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin will become the first openly LGBT person elected to the US Senate. But if all goes according to the, uh, Chick-fil-A agenda of one of her opponent's top aides, Baldwin will be defeated, because this one time in 2010, she danced onstage at a gay… » 9/11/12 3:30pm 9/11/12 3:30pm

    Bill Clinton Brings Down the House, But All We Can Talk About Is Hillary

    The 2012 election is still 61 days away, but reporters and the public alike are already over it. Can't say I blame them — this year's process has already worn my neurons down to frayed, dysfunctional wires that register nothing phrases like "create opportunity" and "get America working" like actual sentences that mean… » 9/06/12 11:10am 9/06/12 11:10am
