I saw I had a text from my grandma, the one who never sends text messages because she doesn’t even have a texting plan. It read, “Girls, turn on your TVs and watch the first woman get nominated to be a presidential candidate of the United States of America.” My grandma was born in 1936...

What a pity, truly. The lives of all Americans hang in the balance of a real-life reality TV show. Before I say anything, I must make an apology. Sorry Teresa Giudice, flipping a table just isn’t newsworthy anymore. As Trump himself would say, “Sad. What a washed-up loser.” I have a v...

Many people have told me that wanting to vote for Bernie Sanders is just a phase. They cite different reasons: I’m a college student, I’m young, I live in Vermont. But the reason that makes me the angriest is the one I hear most often: I’m a woman.I identify as a feminist and want to see all ...

Sanders fans: if Clinton makes it, don’t back down

I would like to make a statement that may shock our liberal readers: Hillary Clinton isn’t the devil. Yeah, we’re all “feeling the Bern,” but we have to face the fact that there’s a possibility Sanders won’t win the Democratic nomination. It’s obviously too soon to tell ...
