In her totally unbiased live report on the announcement of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate last weekend, MSNBC’s White House Spokesperson Correspondent Andrea Mitchell said: “I think you’re going to see that they (have) decided that this is a base election. This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is … Read More
Wow. These ‘mommy wars’ just don’t stop.
