We are rounding the bend toward the last act in this season's power play of a presidential campaign.
Mimi Imfurst is no Obama Girl yet, but with 30,000 views in one day, this is today's best new thing in politics.
This is America, not ancient Troy. We're not just going to let in a giant horse because it has nice hair. We deserve a look inside, even if you don't want us to. And we're not going to like what we see.
The Romney campaign has finally released his 2011 tax return which shows that the Republican candidate paid $1.95 million in taxes on an income of $13.7 million. This amounts to an effective tax rate of 14.1%, which makes sense given that most this was investment income, which is taxed preferentially.
The Republican nominee for president can explain the food-as-entitlement remark away all he wants. But if the Democrats want to seal the deal with America, they'll make sure that small moment of these now-infamous videos hits the airwaves every single day until November 6.
The marriage of politics and fashion is stronger than ever. Election season is in full swing and the candidates and their wives have six weeks left to become America's sweethearts or to reclaim that top spot.
Yes, the economy and jobs are hugely important issues in this election. So is foreign policy, which one Romney advisor dismissed this week as a "shiny object." But so are the personal attacks that Romney and his allies are lobbing at women.
As we ramp up our celebration of all things mom on the political stage, are women inadvertently ceding the political status, power and gravitas they've worked so hard for?

Politicians are hoping that if they flatter our inner "momliness," we will forget many of them have tried to strip our rights as humans and as women, or at the very least that women are far from equally represented in government.
No business man is self-made. Of course, it takes tenacity, intelligence and hard work to achieve what Mitt Romney has, but that talent would fester under a climate of every man for himself.
Starring Freida Pinto as a poor, young Indian woman working at a hotel whose physical beauty catches the eye of the spoiled, wealthy son of an Indian businessman, Trishna rests on a painful foundation of rigid caste distinctions, male privilege, and the limited opportunities.
As incomprehensible as it seems eight weeks before the election, some people remain undecided in this close election. Now party conventions are over and those undecideds have an even clearer picture of where each will lead our nation.
Bill (the Walking-SOTU] Clinton scores arithmetically. VP Paul (Bunyon) tells tall tales. Clint more memorable than Mitt. Kerry asks, "Is OBL better off today?" And POTUS thinks like lawyer, speaks like preacher, jokes like stand-up. Bounce: Romney +1, Obama +5, says Gallup.
The more economically dependent a man is on his wife, the more likely he is to cheat.
