Haley Barbour votes for Personhood

11/03/11 09:11PM

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour spent yesterday nudging around the idea that he might, maybe, kinda, sorta object to a blanket ban on abortion in his state. Governor Barbour told msnbc:I am concerned about some of the ramifications on in vitro fertilization and the fallopian tubes. That concerns me, I have to just say it.He also told Fox that the Personhood campaign was hoping to get a challenge to Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court, but that he didn't think theirs would be the best case.So much for that. Today Governor Barbour voted yes. From the AP:Mississippi Gov. read more

Earlier this week, a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan was unveiled at the Reagan Airport in Washington D.C.

Herman Cain, a frozen armadillo and a pirate, all in one Gail Colllins column

Gail Collins, FTW:Also in the frozen armadillo category: Anything about Herman Cain. Does he want to feed illegal immigrants to alligators or electrocute them? Did he sexually harass women when he was chief of the National Restaurant Association? Did he ever notice that being chief of the National Restaurant Association was just a highfalutin way of saying "lobbyist?"The one thing we've learned for sure is that Herman Cain's staff has no idea what Herman Cain has been up to. read more

Oh, those slippery, slippery gerrymanders
