Hey, Lady Parts Brigade, think the government needs to supply your birth control? Try thinking with your lady smarts.

Naturally, the video is already being slammed as part of the mythical conservative War on Women.

This ad was just called “misogynistic.” What? @kiradavis422 #tcot #WARonWOMEN

Somehow — somehow! — we’ll have to console ourselves with the fact that the number of views on this video easily eclipsed the paltry number of vagina cheerleaders who showed up at Sandra Fluke’s rallies for Obama.

What could go wrong? Joe Biden to lead interagency gun control task force!/LaurenC_Lux/status/281370693650743297

Looks like it’s participation trophy day at the White House!

First, President Obama was named Person of the Year by Time magazine. And later this morning, the president will announce that he’s rewarding Vice President Biden’s hard work with a new leadership position.

Biden is leading a task force on gun control. Biden, for God’s sake.

— ☀DonnaBee☀ (@DonnaBee511) December 19, 2012

Yep, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, Uncle Joe will be heading up an interagency effort to review policies aimed at curbing gun violence. Evidently this is Obama’s way of telling Newtown, “You’ve got a homeboy in the deal who gets it.”

POTUS this morning will announce that @vp Biden will spearhead an interagency process to formulate policies in the aftermath of #Newtown

Official: Biden’s new role rooted in his experience writing/shepherding into law the 1994 Crime Bill + time chairing Senate Judiciary Cmte

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 19, 2012

Shepherding experience? Uh oh. Someone better tell Chompers Biden the gig doesn’t come with one of those nifty shepherd hooks. He’ll be devastated!

Obama in apt named Brady Press Room in WH at 11:45 am EST taps Biden to lead gun violence policy panel in wake of Sandy Hook gun slaughter.

— Lynn Sweet (@lynnsweet) December 19, 2012

Both Obama and Biden are expected to be present at the 11:45 a.m. announcement. We hear Biden can’t wait to get in there and “give you the whole load.”

It’s long been WH practice: when in doubt about a difficult issue – name a panel to make recommendations.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) December 19, 2012

A panel … with Biden? Is this the “meaningful action” Obama promised? Because, you know, nothing really says “meaningful action” like putting Joe Biden in charge. Of anything.

“The problem with America today is a three letter word: GUNS.” – Joe Biden

— sdog (@s_dog) December 19, 2012

Biden is in charge of a committee on gun violence now. There’s no punch line but the joke is on us.

— Brian P (@BPwantstofish) December 19, 2012

I hope Biden’s gun control task force goes as well as his recovery summer. #doyouknowthewebsitenumber

— rebecca smoochie-g (@duchessrebecca) December 19, 2012

Nothing says “I’m super serious about this” like appointing Joe Biden to lead a task force.

I bet if you did a word cloud about Joe Biden-the word crazy would appear in it…and he’s going to be in charge of a panel on gun control?

— irritatedwoman™ (@irritatedwoman) December 19, 2012

Great….Joe Biden is in charge of gun reform….He’ll be banning semi-auto bananas soon

@barackobama taps Joe Biden for gun control panel. After the self control he exhibited in the VP debate this should work out just great.

— brett wilson (@teamtriumph05) December 19, 2012

Oh sweet Jesus. RT @seanagnew: RT @danlothiancnn: WH: Pres. To announce Biden to head interagency effort on policies to prevent gun violence

— Rachel Veronica (@rachelveronica) December 19, 2012

Exit question: Does Obama plan to get Biden started with some of his administration’s tried and true gun control ideas?

I think one of Obama’s new gun control ideas will be buying dangerous firearms and secretly shipping them to Mexican drug cartels.

Second verse, same as the first.

Subtlety Definitely Isn’t This German Shepherd’s Thing…Especially When She’s Hungry

As man’s best friend, dogs have a way of letting their owners know exactly what’s on their mind.

If a dog is cramped up inside and needs to go out to handle their business, they’ll often whimper and bark as they pace around the house. But when it comes to this adorable German Shepherd and her food, she doesn’t mess around. Subtlety is just something for which she has no time.

Despite having just eaten only a few short hours ago, this doggo has an appetite that simply can’t be satiated. But when staring longingly at her food dish doesn’t clue Dad in to her hunger pains, she pulls out all the stops.

This hangry pup tries to get Dad’s attention by clanging her empty food dish against the floor.

When that doesn’t work she tries giving him the stare down.

And when that doesn’t do the trick, our famished pup heads toward the pantry and points to her meal of choice.
