    I’m rolling my eyes over the War on Women piece. Not just because it’s a rehash of the worst the conservatives brought us last year, but also over this: “But Democrats also left their mark with an ill-timed snipe at stay-at-home mom Ann Romney, reinvigorating the “mommy wars”.”

    The webpage is just a summary of the things we were treated to last year: Todd Akin, Rush Limbaugh, Susan G. Komen. And then also “Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen says on CNN that Ann Romney, a stay-at-home mom, “has never worked a day in her life”" Because it wasn’t clear from the context of that quote that Rosen didn’t think being a mom was work? Because the article needed to be “fair and balanced” by pointing out something Democrats did wrong because, hey, all sides are bad? Yes, because one quote taken out of context about moms need to be in the same list as the Issa panel and Republicans thinking rape is a gift from god.
