Sometimes it feels like we’re living in olden times. Women won’t achieve economic or political parity for over 100 years--we  make up only 1/5 of Congress, 1/3 of the Supreme Court, and less than 1/5 of mayors. Hell, ...

Sometimes it feels like we’re living in olden times. Women won’t achieve economic or political parity for over 100 years–we  make up only 1/5 of Congress, 1/3 of the Supreme Court, and less than 1/5 of mayors. Hell, asshats are still asking if America is ready for a female President! Less than 5% of S&P and [&hellip

Alternatives to Congress

The 114th Congress was sworn in this week, with all the pageantry of a slow-moving, noxious fart. Back in our nation’s capital, the stewards of democracy we’ve chosen (and keep choosing election after election) worked a grueling 2-3 days before sprinting back the fuck out of D.C. to avoid interacting with anyone who didn’t think [&h

The Snap: It’s exhausting to be a Congressperson these days. Between suing the president, blocking legislation and appearing on cable news, there’s barely any time to fundraise for your next campaign. Then to top off the unfairness sundae with a cherry of injustice, Congress is mocked for going on recess. As if recess was a [&hellip

Chopped: Congressional Edition

The Snap: We’re barely a month into 2014 and there’s already widespread acknowledgement that Congress won’t do anything this year. There’s always an election coming up somewhere and for some reason politicians think the best way to gain votes is to turn into brick walls. It’s not enough to do nothing; they must stop everyone [&h
