Republican advertisers have done it again. This time, in another "culturally relevant" ad, they are appealing to women with wedding dresses. Because apparently, Beyoncé voters don't understand real issues but dammit if you show them pretty wedding dresses, you'll definitely pull the vote.

Earlier this week, the CRNC released a series of campaign ads for specific Republican Governor's races in the country modeled after the TLC Reality Show Say Yes To the Dress.

Since the 2010 elections, much has been said about the growing importance of the Latino vote, an inexorably rising segment of the American electorate. The Latino electorate is growing in mostly blue states and President Obama captured greater than 70 percent of the Latino vote in 2012.
Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, the jet stream has once again wobbled down into the US, bringing unusually cool but refreshing weather to much of the US as California and Alaska bake.
Where have you gone, John McCain? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Just like the lyrics of Mrs. Robinson, a lot of us wonder what has happened to our country. Where is the pride, the honor, the love for our fellow countrymen?
