The ongoing debate over women’s reproductive health is abhorrent. A snipped I found from Maddow:
The Bishops’ position, which the Republicans have now adopted as their own, is that religious leaders have the right to override that decision, even though it will affect employees who have no moral or religious qualms about birth control. Writing in Newsweek, Andrew Sullivan captured the Bishops’ thinking perfectly: “Catholic doctrine should, according to the bishops’ spokesman, also apply to non-Catholics.” […]

Go read the whole thing here, and check out a cool post at Slog about the crazies that are ruining the Republican Party (and yes, I do wish that there was actually a rational conservative party. In order to find the best solutions to our problems, we need to have good, actual debate, and we need ideas from all parts of the spectrum. However, the reactionary Republicans that have taken over the conservative side of the spectrum are preventing that rational discussion).
And to cleanse the palate, the trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter:
