Three weeks ago the Huffington Post published an article detailing the distress of transgendered parents who breastfeed, “The Troubling Erasure of Trans Parents Who Breastfeed.”

This past Wednesday night, GOP consultant Frank Luntz discussed the results of his “focus group” with Donald Trump supporters, concluding that their enthusiasm for the candidate is unshakeable.

According to the left-leaning Sunlight Foundation, “Thanks in part to outgoing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, gun control groups could match or outspend gun rights forces in 2013 electoral contests, and are heading into 2014 with formidable campaign war chests.”
