Santorum Maddow

Quote of the day: Maddow to Santorum: “You’re fundamentally wrong on civics”

In a simultaneously amazing and immensely trying eight minutes, Rachel Maddow schools Rick Santorum in civics, and his past comments about LGBT people and our “lifestyles. ”From this interview, outlets have begun to report that Santorum has “softened” on LGBT issues, but in his discussion with Maddow, it is only clear that he has started watching what he says on camera about LGBT issues.

Carly Fiorina thinks voters are stupid & her candidacy neutralizes GOP “war on women”

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is the latest Republican to officially throw her hat into the presidential ring. As ThinkProgress notes, it looks like Fiorina’s campaign strategy will be to position herself as Hillary Clinton’s kryptonite, her mere presence capable of neutralizing the Republican “war on women.”

Rand Paul

Rand Paul says first female president is no biggie because women are “kicking butt”

I’d say a good strategy for the Dems at this stage in the 2016 presidential race would be to just keep asking Rand Paul to talk about women. Here he is attempting to brush off the significance of potentially electing a woman to the presidency for the first time in this nation’s history.
