After years of tireless service to the women’s rights movement, it would seem that the term “pro choice” has outlasted its effectiveness.

Rand Paul (R-KY) seems poised to become the fastest rising jerk in the US Senate. He hates the Violence Against Women Act, birthright citizenship, gun control, and a woman’s right to choose.

We are a country that sometimes doesn’t seem to know what words mean before we yell them at each other. More
As you may know, there’s been some talk floating around that Anna Wintour may be up for a US ambassadorship, either to France or to her native UK. Many people think she’s under qualified for the job because running a fashion magazine is a stupid girl job, while Anna herself has said via her reps that she’s “very happy” at Vogue.
