The GOP wants you to know that they truly respect women, especially the women that rock their world. They will stop at nothing to get Americans back to work. They are fighting for you.

Who best to convey this refreshing re-brand than the former Executive Director of the South Carolina GOP Party, Todd Kincannon. Here’s what good ol’ Todd wants you to know from the bottom of his heart.

Who wants to punch a wall every time you see hyperbolic viral headlines like "you won't believe what happened next"? Ok then you must check out the hilarious plugin Downworthy. It will be one of the best 2 minutes of your day. Also how much longer do you think people will keep getting sucked into these headlines?

Does sleazy CEO Dov Charney, of American Apparel, who has been sexualizing teenage models for the last 15 years in ad campaigns, really believe “sexy has no expiration date?” Or is his new campaign, featuring 62-year-old actress, Jacky O’Shaughnessy strutting her sexy self, just another publicity stunt to expand their marketing to an older demographic in hopes of lifting their dismal $1.03 stock price?

WTF is wrong with people? Juan Pablo Galavis, of The Bachelor, says a gay or bisexual person isn't really the best fit for the show. Why? "I respect [gay people] but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids…” http://thedailysass.com/this-is-effed-up/ Because you know hooking up with several women on the show and making them feel like shit about themselves is a rockin example for kids.
