Three Ohio Representatives – Jim Jordan, Bob Latta and Jean Schmidt – have decided to cosponsor a bill that would effectively increase the number of abortions and unintended pregnancies among elementary and secondary school girls.

The bill, H.R. 6453, was introduced by Doug Lamborn and it goes a little something like this…

“To amend the General Education Provisions Act to prohibit Federal education funding for elementary or secondary schools that provide access to emergency postcoital contraception.”

Perfect timing on the heels of the New Yorker cover. The latest email smear on Obama sent by anonymous asshat using the email address Thanks to a reader for sending this one in:

I have been waiting for this type of information

Lobbyist Stephen Payne is caught on tape arranging meetings with the Bush administration in exchange for donations to the Bush library – and of course pocketing some cash for himself and Worldwide Strategic Partners.

If you read this, you quickly realize the SI reporter got played by a racing team that is at the moment struggling for a sponsor and dying for attention. I’m not a NASCAR fan per se (I have friends who ask me to check results on my iPhone is as close as I get to it), but a small amount of research turns up information that BAM racing is an also ran.

TONS of things wrong with the entire scenario. Said team owners are staunch Republicans (could be good if they made some statement that they were actually […]
