Republican Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney's position on gay adoption is vague and a bit confusing. The former Governor told Wolf Blitzer in the clip below from 2008 that he didn't oppose gay adoption in Massachusetts, and didn't want to stop the courts from letting gay adoption go forward. [Update] Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul emails BuzzFeed: "Gov. Romney believes a family with one mother and one father is the ideal setting to raise a child. That doesn't mean adoption by other parents -- whether they be single or same-sex -- should be outlawed. States have to make decisions that are in the best interests of children, and where possible that should be in a home with one mother and one father."

Congressional Democrats in 2006 attack President Bush for high gas prices saying they were "indicative of this administrations failed policies." Now there's no "silver bullet" to fix high gas prices.
And it's ...Don Draper staring wistfully at mannequins? At least we have more to speculate about in this poster than the previous ad campaign: Does this mean Don actually misses Betty? Why is the lady mannequin naked? Is Don about to go all Andrew McCarthy on us and run away with a department store mannequin that he imagines to look like Kim Cattrall? (I hope so.)

Whether it was comparing abortion to slavery, saying unwed mothers shouldn't go to college, or saying diversity was bad, the document shows another Santorum attempt to relate to voters and play down his partisan image in 2006.
Well that's not very nice.
She would've looked something like this.
