I don’t attack Ann Romney for her role as a stay-at-home Mom. When she says something like this, as she did at a speech in Stamford, CT yesterday, I understand that being at home with her boys is a rigorous duty, and important.
“I know what’s like to finish the laundry and to look [...]
Of course she didn’t. She’s just not stupid.
Here’s the quote, supposedly spoken by Ann Romney at a “Moms for Mitt” group outside Philadelphia. It is satire from this Free Wood place, but someone at DailyKos got fooled.
“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world [...]
I recently returned from a cruise on the Royal Caribbean ship Mariner of the Seas (a redundant name, given that a mariner always ships on the seas). We sailed from Galveston, to Honduras and Belize and Cozumel. That doesn’t matter here. Interestingly, they have art auctions on those ships, and the big draw is Thomas [...]
It is time to confront the whole Trayvon Martin mess. I have taken too long to do so, and can only plead that the issue hits too close to home for me to have written calmly about the issue. You see, I have an African American son. There he is in his cowboy hat from [...]
Mitt admits that he’s just not plugged in. Hey, everyone knows you have to plug in your robot once in a while. But Mitt is not plugged in on this one. From the New York Daily News:
President Obama is notoriously mad about March, obsessively filling out his NCAA tournament bracket every year. Mitt Romney? [...]
Fresh news from this afternoon. No, Republicans in Wisconsin can’t be trusted even to live up to a contract. From the Journal Sentinel:
Over the objections of Gov. Scott Walker’s administration, a key legislative committee voted Wednesday against building a new train maintenance base – a decision that officials warned could mean mothballing two brand-new [...]
Yes, Republicans, led by Dan Burton of Indiana, are willing to pay for contraception for horses, but are unwilling to even let a woman testify in a hearing about contraception for women. That is the state of the Republican Party today, that they respect horses more than they do women.
Here in Wisconsin we [...]
Michigan holds its GOP primary at the end of this month, and if it were held right now it would be Mitt Romney’s nightmare. Romney, who calls himself a “son of Detroit,” and who went to school at the elite Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, has is having a tough go in the state [...]
On the issue of contraceptive coverage in insurance plans, there is certainly a hue and cry. Catholic Bishops are whining that their missions are threatened, despite the facts that so many Catholic hospitals and university s already provide contraceptive care in their insurance plans. Oh woe, Republicans like Paul Ryan say! This is an attack [...]
I wrote last Thursday that the worst result of the underhanded intrigues at the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation was the harm that occured to the Komen Brand. Once one of the most respected and popular nonprofits in the nation, the powers that be at Komen decided through intrigue and deception to defund [...]
