Short Attention Span Musing

Inquiring minds want to know...

...given the facts that the Republicans in the lege have overidden basic science by declaring that life begins two weeks before conception and that they are waging a war on contraception (actually, it's a war on women; contraception is just one battlfield in that war), how long will it take before they take their attack on women and their right to control their own bodies to the next level?  The right to say "no"?

After all,  that could prevent a sperm cell from fertilizing an egg, leading to a zygote not being created... the Republicans really, truly believe that Ann Romney is the typical stay-at-home mom?  While most moms work their tails off, whether they do their work in or out of the home (or more likely both), the vast majority don't consider ordering a staff of nannies and maids around while choosing which one of many homes to go to next to be "work".

I mean, it's their campaign, and if they think it'll work, they should go for it, but given the limited number of moms with multiple nannies and mansions available to them, this scheme may not net many votes for them.  Just sayin'...

...did go out of its way to hire former headline writers from the Weekly World News, or did it just happen naturally?

From Politico, written by Caitlin McDevitt (no, I don't think McDevitt actually worked for WWN, but I love the headline) -

Newt Gingrich bitten by a penguin

"Newt Gingrich bitten by a penguin"; not "Elvis' two-headed love child" territory, but certainly among the weirdest headlines coming out of the 2012 election season so far.
