It used to be that you couldn’t speak in a statehouse simply because you happened to have a vagina. So the fact that Republicans in Michigan only silenced a Democratic lawmaker for saying “vagina” is progress.

We’re in the beginning of the doldrums of the 2012 campaign, when policies are drawn out and the fight hasn’t really begun. Thus reporters will take Obama Girl’s PR rep’s call — and Democrats will yell at each other about the best way to explain that Mitt Romney represents George W. Bush’s policies “on steroids.”

So be careful, Republicans. This isn’t a good time of the year to try stop people from using certain words.

It might bite you in the “you know where.”
