This weekend, former Alaska Governor and ex-VP candidate, Sarah Palin, gave the keynote speech at the first annual Tea Party convention. Just to give you a little background, the Tea Party is made up of people on the extreme right who blast both Democrats and Republicans for what they see as over-spending in Washington. Their name is based on that whole other Tea Party thing that happened, like, back in the day in Boston — whatever, go read CNN if you care about the deets. Anyway, at one point in Palin’s speech, she made fun of President Obama from reading from a teleprompter — and then was caught on camera reading notes off her own hand. But what did the scribblings say? Keep clicking to see some of our guesses…
Even though the love is gone for Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, the passion is still pretty fiery. The ladies got in a brawl on Wednesday night at Crown Bar. According to a witness, LiLo was trying to make SamRo jealous by getting wasted and grinding on some ladies, so Samantha said, “Why don’t you just have another drink? You’re a disgrace.” That, obvs, made Lindsay throw a drink in Sam’s face. Then Sam allegedly threw some DJ equipment at Lindsay. A huge mess ensued. [RadarOnline.com]

Valentine’s Day is a pretty divisive holiday. Some people love it. Others hate it. Personally, the only reason I don’t rally against the holiday is that heart-shaped Reese’s have a really awesome peanut butter to chocolate ratio. But it’s not just us normal folks who are skeptical about the yearly love-fest. There are quite a few celebrities who have no tolerance for the contrived mush that reigns over V-Day. Check out their thoughts after the jump.
It’s the first weekend of February, and Punxsutawney Phil totally saw his shadow again, which means we’ve got another six weeks of winter on our hands. Unless, like the National Climatic Data Center, you believe Groundhog Day is hogwash. (The party poopers say Phil’s accuracy is 39 percent). Either way, it’s cold as hell out there and it might be best to hibernate for the remainder of the season. My recipe for hibernation includes lots of soup, 24/7 robe time, and movies. This week’s releases include tearjerker chick-flick “Dear John,” adventure blowing-stuff-up movie “From Paris With Love,” and an almost-funny horror flick, “Frozen.” Keep reading »
This Sunday, while all those football fans get themselves all worked up over the Saints and the Colts, I (along with Kate and Erin and probably everyone else at The Frisky) am going to be drooling and squealing and clapping with delight as I watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. In preparation, I have spent the last half hour drooling and squealing and clapping with delight looking at photos of the 20 puppies who will be participating. It is simply impossible to pick a favorite — but I dare you to try.

“I hate Valentine’s Day. I think every day should be a day of romance. Then, on Valentine’s Day, you should get to tell whoever you hate that you cannot stand them. There would be one day of hating, and 364 days of love.”
“Many customers have brought to our attention one of the color names listed for our BDG Burnout Henley, and rightfully so. We screwed up, and are sincerely sorry. The burnout pattern on this shirt is comprised of two colors – one is an internally developed color we called ‘Obama Blue’ and the other is ‘Black.’ Unfortunately our website database truncated this combination to read ‘Obama/Black.’ We should have caught the error, and apologize for offending anyone.”
