The Daily Show tackled the topic of measles last night (as was pretty much inevitable, sooner or later). Come for the dressing-down of Rand Paul, a.k.a.

Daily Show's Jessica Williams Stupendously Pisses Off 'Fetal Attorney'

HB 494, Alabama's new parental consent law regarding abortion is, as we've noted before, uniquely heinous, given that it allows fetuses to be appointed a guardian ad litem to "represent the interests of the unborn child during certain proceedings" as the text of the law puts it.

If You Dress Like a Cute Dog, Maybe the Cops Won't Shoot You?

Police brutality is a widespread problem in America and it's no secret that some of us are more emotional about cops mistreating animals than people.
