What we missed

Are abortion rights groups really “absent” on fetal pain laws?

Our girl Sady Doyle on why vulnerability is the new girl power.

“Chances are, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Romney will be drawn into the debate over the question of whether American women are losing ground in 2012.”

Republicans are all faux outraged over the vice president’s “chains” comment yesterday in Virginia.  While Biden should have used different phrasing the GOP calling someone out for racism is hilarious.

Also hilarious is Mitt Romney claiming President Obama is “angry” and “desperate” and running on “hatred.”

Two people were injured at a shooting today at the conservative Family Research Council.

    “It’s easy to humiliate and crush people who are open, but when I am weak, then I am strong.” – Nadezdha Tolokonnikova

    Thought of this with the Sady Doyle article, which interested me because I see this sort of confessional type work as a continuation of the old idea of “The personal is political” – anyone who doesn’t see where time in a psych ward can’t interconnect with a number of relevant political issues (healthcare, ablism/stigmatism, questionable pharmaceutical practices etc.) – well, I can only guess they haven’t even got brought in. ;)

    Why do you think Biden should have worded it differently?
