New GOP bills take reproductive decisions away from women


Rachel Maddow’s coverage of the aggressive and relentless anti-choice agenda of Republicans. 

Tumblr won’t let me embed videos right now, so I’m sharing the link instead, but you’ll definitely want to watch the video.

You’ve heard of the Fair Deal. You’ve heard of the New Deal. You’ve heard of the Square Deal. But Mr. Romney is trying to sell you a sketchy deal.


--President Obama in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, October 17th.

Nice debate summary, Senator Chuck Grassley.

Congressional Quarterly reporter Emily Ethridge offers firsthand knowledge of anti-choice Rep. Steve King’s (R-Iowa) ignorance on women’s health. This comes after King said earlier this morning that he’d never heard of a girl getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest, which was a roundabout way of defending Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), who last weekend asserted that women who are the victims of “legitimate rape” have bodily defenses to avoid pregnancy.
It’s par for the course for conservatives, including Akin, King, and Paul Ryan, who have long sought to redefine “rape.”

Surprise! Bachmann's Iowa Campaign Chair Endorses Ron Paul


Just when you think the GOP primary race can’t get any weirder…

Kent Sorenson just announced he was endorsing Ron Paul, then resigned as Michele Bachmann’s Iowa co-chair.

You suggested it. I created it. I give you the bingo board for a spectacular drinking game involving the GOP debate/discussion hosted by The Family Leader, Iowa’s premier anti-gay and anti-choice group. It’s this Saturday from 4-6 p.m. CST and will be live-streamed here. I’ll be live-tweeting it. Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul are all confirmed to attend. Mitt Romney was invited, and Jon Huntsman was snubbed. 
The Family Leader is that heinous group of folks who brought you the misogynistic, anti-marriage equality pledge that claimed blacks were better off under slavery, and pornography should be banned.
Should be a good time… and seriously, I’m pretty sure this can be reused after the 19th.

FDR Went to Wisconsin To Battle ‘Economic Royalists’ But Obama Avoids Both The State and the Fight.

The last pair of recall elections will be held today and two Democratic State Senators are fighting to keep their seats.  Obama will be within 20 miles of Wisconsin, but he refuses to cross the state line.  The Nation has a great piece comparing Obama’s approach to that of another great Democratic leader, FDR. 

Like Obama, FDR had been elected on a promise of “hope” and “change.”

Like Obama, FDR had tried with mixed success to deliver on that promise.

The thirty-second president went to Green Bay to explain to a crowd of sympathetic but worried Wisconsinites that the economic battles of the moment needed to be seen in the perspective of the great American contest between a privileged few that engaged in the “private means of exploitation” and the great many that had “waged a long and bitter fight for [their] rights.”
