It’s all a matter of perspective. I had dinner with a group of people last night, and one of the women was pregnant for the first time at age 37.  Her husband commented that he was going to buy the kid a onesie that said “Now that I’m safe, I’m pro-choice.” …

I have previously highlighted Richard Mourdock’s attempt to close the cash gap with Democrat Joe Donnelly. At one level Mourdock has been successful, outraising Donnelly in the 2d Quarter, but since he started behind by $800k and had to spend money on the primary, he still trails: A half-million dollar cash advantage in…

Why this is borderline … well you know … fiscal responsibility.  There’s nothing worse than that. From Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stoner, Romney’s ‘Free Stuff’ Speech Is a New Low Wow.
