I love Halley Suitt’s 12 Reasons Women Should Vote For Kerry/Edwards. It means a lot coming from her as she’s personally very moderate, and not even typically a “political blogger.”

1. I’m a security mom too, but Bush has created the most insecure world imaginable by making nearly every country in the world hate Americans …

2. Kerry is cool with a wife who earns more and has more money than he does …

3. Edwards is a babe and cool with having a terrifically smart, slightly plump wife …

4. Kerry’s been through a divorce and has a good relationship with his ex and kids to show for it — that’s diplomacy! …

5. There’s honestly a lot I like about Laura Bush, but she’s a 1950’s wife and this is not 1950 …

6. No matter how much you like George and Laura Bush, they are the front “men” for a very right-wing Bible-loving, anti-abortion, anti-gay movement. They want to keep women hidden in a burquah called “home sweet home” and think women are best pregnant and barefoot …

7. It’s the economy and we’re NOT stupid. Aren’t you women and moms sick of worrying about losing your own jobs (or probably have already lost them) …

8. Don’t tell me ladies that you don’t know someone who’s gone bankrupt in the last year or so — I know you do …

9. How many single moms do you know who make over $200,000 and have been given a break by Bush’s tax cuts? That would be … ZERO …

10. Ever wake up late at night in a sweat over the frightening scenario of having no healthcare insurance and getting breast cancer?! Bush isn’t losing sleep over it …

11. … He wants to win a middle east OIL war for his Texas friends — don’t kid yourself — and will be forced to reinstate the draft …

12. No woman looking at the pictures of the prisoners of the Abu Ghraib prison can be anything but devastated by this ungodly treatment of humans under Bush’s watch…
