Where Are the Police?

Someone has obviously murdered Renee Zellweger and is now pretending to be her.

“His expression was grim, his voice cracked at just the right times, and he appeared in genuine pain — all while describing his wife.

As Bob McDonnell testified in his public corruption trial Thursday, it was easy to see why he was once regarded as one of the most talented Republican politicians in the country. He didn’t simply throw his wife, Maureen, under a bus to keep himself out of prison. He laid her down gently on the road, with a pillow and blanket.”

Quote of the Day

“Mississippi may not shift its obligation to respect the established constitutional rights of its citizens to another state.”

Judge E. Grady Jolly of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in an opinion that will allow Mississippi’s only remaining abortion clinic to stay open.

A good day for the women of Mississippi and women all over America.

Shut Up about Shutting Down

Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, who lost his Missouri Senate race to Claire McCaskill, is baaack, and he wants us to know he’s sorry — very, very sorry.  In his new book*, Akin regrets that he apologized for claiming women can’t get pregnant if it’s a “legitimate rape.” I think we all knew at the time that his apology was as phony as his biology.

This moron genuinely believes women can magically shut down their bodies.  If only we could shut up Akin and his crappy science.

Did Cassidy’s Daughter Really Have a Choice?

Bill Cassidy, the staunchly anti-abortion GOP candidate for Senate from Louisiana, has announced that his unmarried 17-year-old daughter will have a baby sometime this summer.

I just hope that this is what she wants, and not what Cassidy and his wife want for her.  Their daughter may well want children five or ten years from now, but not as she begins her senior year in high school.

I know that many abortion opponents argue that some women are unduly pressured into having abortions by their parents or spouses or boyfriends, and that’s a terrible thing.  But I think it’s equally sad if a girl is pressured into not having an abortion, if that’s what she wants.  Meanwhile the boy who shares responsibility seems to be going his merry way.

Sulzberger Preferred the Wrath of Women Than African Americans

Dean Baquet, who has replaced Jill Abramson as the executive editor at the NYT, told owner Arthur Sulzberger that Sulzberger had to choose between them.  If Sulzberger didn’t fire Abramson, Baquet, the first African American managing editor at the paper, would quit, claiming “humiliation” over the job offer to Janine Gibson, who was going to become co-managing editor for digital.

Sulzberger, knowing he had to face a firestorm over an African American or a woman, decided to fire the woman.  He may have rationalized his choice by telling himself that women aren’t really a “minority,” like African Americans.  But when it comes to getting jobs like executive editor of the Times, women sure as hell are a minority.
