From Andrew Levy:
(CNN) — First of all: Michele Bachmann will not be getting my vote for president.
But that is a political decision, not a medical one. Reading media reports that she suffers from a severe migraine condition, I feel for her.
As one of over 30 million Americans who gets migraines regularly, I suspect I’m not alone in feeling empathy here. Bachmann has the same problem, politically speaking, that millions of other “migraineurs” experience with their co-workers, bosses, and friends. If you’ve never had a migraine, you tend to assume that the blinding headaches and neurological disruptions mean that the migraineur is either very brave, or very fragile.
The truth is neither of these.

From THINK PROGRESS :
The “Great Seal” of the Commonwealth of Virginia depicts the Roman goddess Virtus standing over the defeated Tyranny and has been in use since 1776. Virtus is holding a spear and a sheathed sword, and the garb she is wearing exposes her left breast. (An earlier rendition of the seal traced back to Thomas Jefferson shows the goddess wearing even less clothing.) However, far-right Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) is now tinkering with the historic seal:
The seal depicts the Roman goddess Virtus, or virtue, wearing a blue tunic draped over one shoulder, her left breast exposed. But on the new lapel pins Cuccinelli recently handed out to his staff, Virtus’ bosom is covered by an armored breastplate.
Why stop there? Replace the boob with a boob you probably like, Ken. John Ashcroft will feel very at home all covered up. And don’t stop there. Sic semper tyrannis (Thus always to tyrants)? Seriously? That’s way too wussy. I suggest Stamus contra malum: We fight against the evil. C’mon you teabaggers love talkin’ about fightin’ evil! And who better to personify the victim of John Ashcroft’s asswhuppin’ than Dr. Evil himself?

Have a wonderful 4th of July!
