On Monday, local news channel Denver7 reported that a woman in Castle Rock, Colorado was charged with a misdemeanor after protesting outside Republican Congressman Ken Buck’s office, an act of dissent which included writing on the sidewalk in chalk.
Republicans took the House in a historic sweep, but failed to take the Senate — or elect rich-lady candidates (Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, Linda McMahon) and sundry crazy people (Sharron Angle, Christine O'Donnell, Carl Paladino). Here's a complete rundown.
The anti-choice movement may have overplayed its hand in Colorado with the Personhood Amendment, but not before making an insane video calling Obama the Angel of Death. Will it make a difference in the Senate election — for the better?
More details have emerged from that rape case Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck declined to prosecute. Namely, that the alleged perpetrator acknowledged that it was rape in a taped phone call.
It's hard to keep track of the asshattery of this year's Republican candidates, so we'll refresh your memory: Ken Buck said to vote for him because he doesn't wear high heels. He's also hard-line anti-choice, and terrible to rape victims.
Last night's primaries were a mixed bag both for Democratic control of Congress and for women in politics. Among other races, Republicans picked Ken Buck for Colorado Senator — because he doesn't wear high heels?
Yesterday, we learned that voters were polled on whether Barbara Boxer or Carly Fiorina has better hair. Even without the 2008 election's bombast (Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin), the past year has been rather rocky for women in politics. Some lowlights:
Republican Senate primary candidate Jane Norton recently taunted her opponent for not being "man enough." He responded yesterday by telling voters they should pick him because he doesn't wear high heels. Yes, this is the actual level of debate.
