Both Campaigns Want Tonight's Female Presidential Debate Moderator to…

DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz reassured the public on Monday that she was pretty sure that during the Presidential debate on Tuesday, the candidates wouldn't forget to talk about women like they did last time.

The Ultimate Presidential Debate Drinking Game for Ladies

Women! Did you know that we're allowed to vote now, without our husbands' permission?

Catholic Newspaper Calls Obama 'More Pro-Life' Than Romney

Now that he's picked a running mate who basically believes that fetuses should run things, Mitt Romney seems to have his "pro-life" cred sewn up. After all, he's against abortion, his friends are against abortion, and his new bromantic partner is super extra against it. And that should bring all the religious… » 8/13/12 5:30pm 8/13/12 5:30pm

Some sunny side up Suzies might claim that all this political negativity is getting them down, but I love this part of the election cycle, the part where both major parties pretend that if they're elected, the needs of women will be their #1 highest priority.

Mitt Romney Campaign Loves Ronald Reagan So Much that they Misspelled…

This first time the Romney campaign misspelled something important ("Amercia"), I chalked it up to an embarrassing (hilarious) oversight by some poor intern who was probably fired afterward and ran home crying to his McMansion in the outskirts of Provo.
