There are two major parties in the United States: the party that wishes to govern and the party that wants only to campaign.
The screeching you hear in Washington is the sound of politicians slamming their mouths into reverse as they back away from their previous positions on the misnamed "budget sequester."

Left wingers need to preserve the talking point that the Right hates women.

A noble band of Republicans legislators on Capitol Hill is doing something almost unheard of in the annals of courage: not jumping through hoops to placate the nation’s feminist minority.
