Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi (pictured above) knows a secret. Despite my (and my fellow liberals) many attempts to stop him from revealing this secret to the public, he has gone ahead and blabbed anyway.
I don't get it. I tried everything that would appeal to a Republican. I offered to pay him off. I offered to quit college and vote GOP. I offered to treat women like they were subservient to me for the rest of my life. And when all that failed, I even told him that I would convert to Christianity and declare a new Crusade on all non-Christians. Still no dice.

"Fox & Friends" television personality and part-time Strutting Leo Impersonator Steve Doocy (pictured above) recently came under fire for his underhanded interpretation of something that President Obama said. He and the rest of Roger Ailes' cronies over at Faux News have been trying to twist Obama's "silver spoon" quote for a few days now by making seem like it was an attack on Romney. This all culminated on Thursday when none other than Mitt Romney himself was interviewed on "Fox & Friends" by Doocy.
Wondering how Romney was reacting to the latest jab from the president, Doocy brought him up to speed: "He said, uh, 'Unlike some people, I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth'." Burn, right? Except President Obama never said, "Unlike some people." In fact, he wasn't even talking about Mitt Romney. He was talking about education beyond high school.
What he said was: "We created a foundation for those of us to prosper. Somebody gave me an education. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michele wasn't. But somebody gave us a chance."

I decided to post this here because it runs along well with the theme of this blog. If you have an idea of what you think this is about, I'd definitely love to hear it.
Oh, and one last thing: I enjoy criticism. Really, I do. It helps me get better. But keep in mind this is the roughest a rough draft can get. So enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

With each day that passes, there's a new headline announcing how yet another state has pushed to repeal some form of a woman's rights. It's too bad, then, that our disgustingly lazy media would rather report on how large Kim Kardashian's ass has gotten, or the ongoing feud between Hillary Rosen and Ann Romney (which is a pointless argument - both are kind of wrong).
Let's start from the top. Democrats and liberals, noticing that Republicans and conservatives have become more and more focused on passing legislation that involves only women, began to claim that the GOP was trying to start a war on women. Republicans and their media arm, Fox News, shot back with the ever-so-adult, "Nah-uh! You are!"
Now, to say that this is a "war" is both ridiculous and sensationalist. It isn't a war. That's insulting for two reasons: 1) It trivializes actual war (like the one in Afganistan) and 2) It makes it sound like legislators are reaching for their weapons and firing at women. The proper term, I think, is "attack." Politicians are attacking the same rights that women have been working towards for the last one-hundred plus years.

I'm not really sure what to think of this. Technically speaking, Santorum didn't actually say anything. But the fact that he stumbled and then changed subjects completely has me wondering what it was that he was going to say.
No other words come to my mind other than the harsh, derogatory racial slur.
I expected this to be all over the news and yet I haven't heard a peep from any major news network. It only popped up once here at AddictingInfo (where I first saw it). So what's up, media? I think this deserves a little attention. I'd at least like to know what it was he was going to say, and why he stumbled over his words like that.
What do you think? Speak up in the comment section below.
