Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, last seen in these pages mansplaining to Gabby Giffords that she should sit down and shut up and not worry her pretty little ventilated head about all those guns someone might use to shoot someone else in the brain, would like all the wimmenz to know that it is the Democrats what […]

It’s been a little while since our comments queue overflowed with good old fashioned vitriol, and as we’ve noted previously, we simply don’t seem to get the kind of unhinged semiliterate rants that made us all feel like worthly Wokette skum. Maybe that’s a reflection of the waning influence of the tea party? Happily, there’s […]

Updated Update: After everything seemed to be over, a pleasant surprise: The filibuster worked, and Senate Bill 5 was not passed. See new post here. Tonight, Dear Wonkers,  this filibusterin’ Texas Senate lady, state Sen. Wendy Davis, will prove whether ladies’ bladders are as wee as their brains. Sen. Davis is our newest nominee for […]

Hey ladies. Have you been patronized today? Have national Republicans belittled your tiny mind and puny ambition yet this week? Well, they might have, but would you have even noticed between all the housework and childcare and womanly duties? Probably not, so take yourself a little break from watching The View or prettifying yourself for […]

How are liberals winning the battle against the Fetal Menace today? Probably a lot of ways, but especially this: The State of Indiana will not be allowed to withhold Medicaid funding from Planned Parenthood! Says who, you ask? The Supreme Court, that’s who! (Actually they didn’t “say” anything, they just coldly and disdainfully “declined” to […]

You would think the legislators of Oklahoma would have their hands full with that whole our-state-got-totaled-by-a-tornado (or maybe it was the government’s secret “weather weapons”) situation. But no, turns out they are staying focused on the single biggest threat EVAH: health care for ladyparts. In the wake of one of the most destructive tornadoes in […]

Don’t look now, kids, but Virginia has turned the corner and gone nuts.  Seriously, it has gone It-Puts-The-Lotion-On-Its-Skin crazy. In just the past week, it has come to light that GOP nominees to state office and elected officials want to: force women who have miscarriages to report it to law enforcement officers; compared Planned Parenthood […]

(Video may be NSFW if your place of employment considers tiny cartoon genitalia pornographic) You may have thought that we had something called “Freedom of the Press” here in America, but it turns out that there is no freedom for people who simply want to buy an ad in the New York Times to explain […]

Clutch your pearls and bring out the smelling salts, because this is sure to make fetus fetishists get all faint and outraged and stabby (or clinic bomby — for life, of course): Planned Parenthood Federation of America announced today that President Barack Obama will deliver the keynote address at the organization’s annual gala dinner in […]

Oh hey look! It’s Idiot Republican Saying Stupid Shit o’clock again. This time, it’s Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s turn again, as usual. Give someone else a turn once a while, Marsha! She’s just so greedy: “I think that what you’re going to see with the [Kermit] Gosnell case is people will focus on, yes, the regulations, […]

Say this for Arkansas Republicans: They sure are ambitious! When they’re not busy banning abortion over and over and over again, they are hard at work thinking up clever new ways to have more teen moms, please. Yes, Arkansas already has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation — it’s no New […]

Well here is another fine howdeyedo! Bill Diss, a computer and math teacher in Portland, Oregon, has been suspended just because (according to the district) he is unprofessional and intimidating and harassing and told his students they would end up on “82nd Avenue” (WHERE THE WHORES ARE) if they joined the “Let’s Not Get Pregnant […]

Texas state Senator Donna Campbell isn’t trying to shut down abortion completely, we assume, since that would be unconstitutional. (She is totally trying to shut down abortion completely.) She would just, as a doctor and a woman, prefer it if the great state of Texas require that abortion clinics meet the regulatory standards for surgical […]

Oh, early 2012, we already miss you. At least in February 2012, we were well rid of Karen Handel, the then-vice president of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Remember Karen? She’s the delightfully (?!) wingnutty anti-choice zealot that came up with the unbelievably genius plan to strip Planned Parenthood of monies for breast cancer […]

Well this does not seem so loving and joyful and Christ-like, but hey, what do we know. An Oregon man who is not Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, or Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, and who’s been protesting for months outside a Planned Parenthood that doesn’t even offer abortion services got into a small bit […]
