The NRA's "Circus of Fear" depends on misinformation and myths to generate attacks on politicians who have the gall to address the gun violence that continues to destroy families and communities every day in America.
The Vice Presidency is an odd job interview. Best way to apply is to deny desiring the position. Saying exemplary things about the candidate never hurts.
I'm sending Governor Chris Christie a flying chancla for vetoing a marriage equality bill and contending that the people of New Jersey should vote on the matter.
This week we discuss topics including: Mitt Romney loves lamp; the Tea Party wagging the Republican dog; Romney briefly made sense on spending; no transvaginal ultrasound law in Virginia; the Muslim rumors are back; and others.
Women are increasingly realizing there may be no place for them in the formerly Grand Old Party, except as second class citizens, their rights defined...
