No! She actually is from Illinois.
You can tell it was not a miscarriage by the reactions: hers, Conan's, the audience's. Everyone knew she was talking about an abortion, and everyone was shocked by it. Conan did not know what to say, the audience did not laugh. Even Handler herself was admitting, "OK, this really isn't funny." Additionally, it was in tangent about what a "bad" teenager she was. The context told everything.
Good grief. Abortion is now a stand-up (or in this case, sit-down) schtick? And did no one comment on the fact that she specifically says, "a half-black, half-white" child? Is no one going to call her out on THAT particularly piece of racist filth? Even Conan is speechless. (But without the guts to display the disgust that it warrants,) Absolutely vile. Ann Coulter: "...but apparently most people in America like to vote for a winner ... this is all a crock." (2:09) :)
Woo-hoo! Second behind Thomas Sowell is the highest praise possible. I'll take it. Thanks!!! :)

Will he vote to repeal Obamacare? Yes. Will McCaskill? When pigs fly. There you go.
The issue is not that Akin opposes abortion even in the cases of rape or incest (rare though those are, they do occur). Nor is it because may pro-life people who oppose abortion are legitimately uncomfortable forcing someone who has been victimized by a crime to carry a baby to term. (It is one thing when the child conceived is the product of your choice; it is another when the sex and the pregnancy are forced on you.) It is because Akin made a stupid and scientifically false statement: that a woman's body can "shut down" and prevent pregnancy in the case of "legitimate rape." That said, I hope he beats McCaskill anyway. It would be poetic justice.
Romney has obviously made a decision to go with a Rubio counterpart with more experience, in the hopes that the similarities, as well as a vigorous and full-throated endorsement by Rubio, and Paul Ryan's demonstrated understanding of the Medicare issue would attract Floridians' attention. In addition, I'd say getting the introduction slot is damn strong evidence of Romney's support for Marco Rubio.
Old white men? Were you WATCHING the convention, Mr. Towery? In addition to your legitimately delightful Marco Rubio, we had Mia Love, Susana Martinez, Kelly Ayotte, Nikki Haley, Artur Davis, a platform of Olympians (including a Paraolympian). It would be wonderful if every important and swing state had a guy or gal on the ticket. But there are two slots, and that's it. Rubio is wonderful and yes, probably would have carried Florida. But he lacks the experience that Paul Ryan has, as well as the policy chops. Ryan is youthful and exuberant, an unapologetic defender of American values - as Rubio is.
OMG, I laughed out loud. It was the tubs of nacho cheese that did it.
To be honest, it's depressing. Some of those folks won't even be in the same political jobs after November. Pat Quinn's state (Illinois) just got a credit downgrade. How many of the Democrat governors will be able to say what the Republicans did when they spoke last week: "I inherited a deficit and we now have a surplus - without raising taxes!" --???? Which leaves us with what - abortion and contraception? I must admit, it will be fun to hear Bill Clinton, however. If he does what I think he plans to do, he will play Brutus to Obama's Julius Caesar -- purport to praise him, but do him in by reminding everyone of how great a Democrat president HE was, compared to Obama.
