    GOP makes its move in WI: AttyGen Van Hollen asks Supreme Court to reinstate rigid Voter ID law before election. @thenation @WeGotEd @edshow

    In Akin tried to withdraw after today, he’d have to go to court. But FWIW, 4 of 6 judges on Mo. Supreme Court were appointed by Democrats.

    Sam, thanks for your feminist support and keep it going on this topic!
    I loved the comment “If she’s a witch, then she floats”–that is the core of the issue.
    If progressive MEN speak out on this topic, and keep speaking out, it will start to break through the noise.
    The Right wing needs to hear it from MEN.

    Also, feminist men are soooooooo hot.
