It’s A Moustache Blog! #teamgaily takes on #Ho-Movember

Posted November 2, 2011 by Kyle

Well. It’s that time of year again. Moustache Season. ‘Tis the time where men shave off all their facial hair and start to grow, in their own fashion, a good old solid “Mo”. What is a “Mo” you ask?

Bachmann, Perry Still Totally Incoherent on HPV, GOP Comes Around on AIDS

Posted September 20, 2011 by Nikki

Bachmann never fails to provide us with Gaily Beat fodder. Last Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann announced during a debate, that Rick Perry’s 2007 mandate to vaccinate all 6th Grade girls in Texas against HPV was in short, a ludicrous idea.
