Good post, but my OCD ass feels compelled to point out that I think you meant abortion, not contraception. Griswold was the contraception case.
Mar 26, 2013 Anne in MA commented on SCOTUS Blog Says....
My two cents: We're either going to get another intellectually incoherent Romer-esque decision (striking down Prop 8 but not making marriage equality the law of the land), or a much more sensible decision dismissing the appeal on standing grounds (which would functionally invalidate Prop 8 but, again, not making a national ruling on marriage equality).

@23 - I'm sure you are. Good, normal people that benefit, whether you like it or not, from the systemic disadvantages women face in most professional fields. Don't tell us you're not on board with that; tell your bosses and congressmen. (Also, dismissing 21's concerns with a patronizing, half-hearted attempt at psychoanalysis and suggesting that she has somehow managed not to meet anyone in a group that makes up approximately half the world's population ain't helping.)

Of course Dan is a dam idiot! Do you have any idea how long it's been since he's seen a real-life beaver?

At the risk of living up to every lesbian stereotype:

PUPPIES!!!
Nov 25, 2012 Anne in MA commented on When Pennsylvania Charter Schools Performed Worse, State Officials Used a More Lenient Standard.
There's a good post by Matt Yglesias about this topic here. It's about voucher programs rather than charter schools, but the basic issue is the same--namely that, "school choice" without accountability and quality control doesn't improve anything.

@6 - Fnarf, did you just use a cf cite? Because that kind of made my day.
Nov 13, 2012 Anne in MA commented on I Am Really Digging This Anti-Princess Vibe We've Got Going On Right Now.
To be fair, Justice Sotomayor, I'm afraid that "lawyer" might not be a realistic career option right now either.
Oct 2, 2012 Anne in MA commented on Tonight: Matt Drudge Is Going to Point Out the President's Blackness.
"The implication is that he's going to publish a video of President Obama talking about race in a way that will presumably make white voters nervous."

...you mean, talking about race at all?
