Lizz Winstead and Lady Parts Justice Take Cleveland

[originally posted on NationofChange.org] On one side of the Public Square in Cleveland is the screaming masses of Wesboro Baptist Church wannabees holding signs of hate and yelling into a megaphone. On the other was the Lady Parts Justice League, a pro-choice activist group that makes funny videos (think the Daily Show, but with a purpose). This time though they weren’t being funny.

Netroots Nation Photo Album, Day 1

If you’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Lizz interviewed, or seen her live comedy, you’ve missed out. She is one amazingly talented, insightful, and brave woman. The fact that she’s hilariously funny doesn’t hurt either. Shannyn and I got the privilege of hanging out with Lizz when Netroots Nation went to her home town of Minneapolis last year. We got the royal tour, and had a blast. Then, she returned the visit and came…
