Photo of the Day: Michigan GOP pretends to read fashion mags, claims they understand women

What do you do when you’re accused of fighting a “War on Women” because you, for instance, force them to purchase abortion insurance in case they get raped? If you’re the Michigan GOP, you turn it into a hilarious joke.
