What I'm thinking about today: Rick Santorum's new book and the it takes a family, not a village claim. Partisan politics aside, what do we make of all this, and isn't it interesting that he's able to say that if one parent should be at home, it could be a dad too. Yes, i can't stand him, and will work against his reelection in our fair state, but now that the media's picked up this next missive in the parenting ways--can we call them the daddy wars now that Rick's involved?--public opinion on all these topics will again be stirred. And as politically progressive people who want to claim family life as ours, why give it over to a piece in a right wing play for more power?
