Steve Hochstadt: Some people talk nasty and nastier, hoping to prevent the next Sandra Fluke from expressing herself. Bigmouths thrive in the silence of others.
Julie Driscoll: Republican women – with contraceptive needs themselves, and the uncomfortable feeling of watching a young woman, perhaps not unlike their own daughters, being flogged and villified by men for honesty and sincerity – also vote.

Jerry Drucker: Five major corporations own most all of the media, including TV. Very soon, when the GOP rules the House, there will be no more PBS or NPR. Sesame Street will be replaced by K Street and daily news will come straight from the RNC.
Randy Shaw: The greatest impact of the Limbaugh strategy was to erode popular faith in the capacity of the federal government to implement real progressive change.
