Meeting Maddow – Third Time’s The Charm!

Meeting Maddow – Third Time’s The Charm!

Well, my fellow Politicos, if you are any sort of follower of my blog, in either of its incantations, you’ll know that I’ve always been a huge supporter of the lovely and brilliant Rachel Maddow. Wickedly smart, Our Gal Rachel brings into our home every evening the stories that I follow here and elsewhere in the blogosphere. While TRMS isn’t the only place I get my news,  it is usually the place I start, and the excellent...

Political Hilarity

Political Hilarity

Nothing deep here today, my Fellow Politicos. It’s a gorgeous, sunny Spring Break day here in Southern California, and the kids and I are off to the pool in a few. But while they are getting ready, I just had to share this brilliantly hilarious new Tumblr blog with you: Texts from Hillary. Nearly every one of them has made me laugh out loud. Nearly every one! It’s smart, funny, snarky humor with a wonky bent. What’s not to...

“You Just Have To Close Your Eyes”: GOP’s Legalized Rape of American Women

“You Just Have To Close Your Eyes”: GOP’s Legalized Rape of American Women

Well, my fellow Politicos, it seems the GOP has reached yet another all-time low. They keep doing that – just when you think they’ve scratched the bottom of the barrel with their misogynistic remarks and hate-filled, unconstitutional laws, they out-do themselves again. Impressive. Earlier this week, Pennsylvanian GOP Governor Tom Corbett did the Democrats one big, gnarley favor. When asked about whether women should be made to watch...

GOP Sez Women Are “Meaningless…Worthless…Irrelevant” – Issa Wants Women Barefoot And Pregnant

GOP Sez Women Are “Meaningless…Worthless…Irrelevant” – Issa Wants Women Barefoot And Pregnant

When I was 19 0r 20, I had a shirt that stated, in big neon letters, U.S. OUT OF MY UTERUS, across a picture of the womb. I went with friends to Pro-Choice rallies that celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, granting women the right to choose – we couldn’t fathom a time when free and safe access to abortion was illegal. We never had to worry about whether we would have access to women’s reproductive care. My husband and I...

Underwater? Help Is On The Way! Mortgage Relief from Fed

Underwater? Help Is On The Way! Mortgage Relief from Fed

  Well, my fellow Politicos, it’s been a wild week – so much to talk about! So many things that I have included a couple of links at the bottom of the post for you because there won’t be time to discuss them together here this week. But the main thrust of my post this week is the issue that could affect your kitchen table politics the most.  Right now, 10.7 million homeowners in the U.S. are “underwater” in...

Komen: Fighting for A Cure, or Pandering to The Right? Americans Stand for Planned Parenthood

Komen: Fighting for A Cure, or Pandering to The Right? Americans Stand for Planned Parenthood

The vast majority of women in this country have, in one way or another, donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, if not by sending them a check, then by buying pink-capped yogurt and mailing in the lids, or buying a pink T-shirt, or a pink bracelet,  or by walking in or sponsoring a friend in the famous “Race for The Cure.” If Komen was considered a brand name, it’d be right up there at the top of the most pro-women...

Welcome

I refuse to cave to a minivan. I am still a tomboy - comfortable in Levi's, my Yankees cap and Converse. And I always have a political opinion...hell, I always have an opinion, period. The hubby, my kids and my friends think I should run for office. Maybe one day. But for now, Momma Politico blogs. Peruse, enjoy, and know that our busy lives are as significant as those in The Washington Post. Cheers, Heidi Haines AKA Perry MacNeil Momma Politico
