More than a bit self-serving. She footnotes a story involving herself, then also uses those reliable mainstream sources Mother Jones and Think Progress in her pitch.
Well, she at least is used to whoring herself out by now.
On Wednesday night, I spoke on the floor at the Democratic Convention about what a Romney-Ryan America would mean for women.
An America in which access to birth control is controlled by people who will never use it.1 In which politicians redefine rape so survivors are victimized all over again.2 In which someone decides which victims of domestic violence deserve help, and which don’t.3
And six months from now, we could all be living in that America.
But we’ve also seen another future we could choose. An America in which our President — when he hears a young woman has been verbally attacked — thinks of his daughters. Not his delegates or donors.
We talk often about choice. Now, it’s up to all of us to make the choice to support our President with a Democratic majority.
Will you add your name to say that you’re standing with President Obama?
