Sarah Palin: Will She Step Down As McCain’s Running Mate?

Thanks to Hurricane Gustav, the Republican National Convention’s “will it or won’t it happen” debate, and Sarah Palin, the media didn’t get much of a holiday this Labor Day, did they? The latter — Sarah Palin, the Governor from Alaska chosen to be Senator John McCain’s running mate — was an especially hot topic this weekend as news broke nearly every hour it seemed with some new revelation. Having spent the weekend absorbing every ounce of coverage on Palin, I woke up this morning with the clear hunch that Palin may end up dropping out of the VP spot this week — but not wanting to rush to judgment, I decided to weigh the various pros and cons of her leaving the race. Place your bets in the comments! Keep reading »

Palin wanted to clear up any rumors so that Bristol’s privacy could be protected. [CNN]

    Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

    Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling Cooper works on putting together a new ad campaign for Playtex, centered around every woman have a Jackie (Kennedy) side and a Marilyn (Monroe) side — for the record, according to the boys, Peggy is all Gertrude Stein — Don is in way too deep with Bobbie Barrett. Don is not immune to viewing women through these two lenses as well — while he’s happy to have Bobbie as his whore on the side, when Betty buys a chic new bikini to wear at the pool, Don is quick to demean her as “desperate”. Both sides of Amelia wanted to smack the s–t out of him for that one. Keep reading »

    Fashion Slideshow: Transition Scarves

    Scarves are obviously a necessity during winter, when the temperatures drop to unbearable and every inch of skin needs to be covered. But scarves are also big for fall — called “transition” scarves, these are made of thin fabric, often colorful combinations, and are a little on the boho side. Perfect for when the weather is starting to cool, just a touch. Lauren Conrad recently said she loves to add a colorful thin scarf to an otherwise simple outfit to pull it all together. We like that idea too. Keep reading »

    Michelle Obama’s DNC Style FOUND!

    Not that style and politics should mix, and we certainly don’t think a candidate or a candidate’s spouse should be criticized for lacking style, but Catherine and I have both been bowled over by Michelle Obama’s nose for fashion over the course of the campaign. And never more so as when we both came into the office after the final night of the DNC and said nearly in unison (after we discussed the actual substance of the night’s big speeches, of course), “Who was Michelle wearing?” Now we have the answer! According to Fashion Week Daily, Obama was wearing a Thakoon dress adorned with three Erickson Beamon broaches. Unfortunately, it’s not clear whether Obama did the accessorizing herself or whether they came with the dress as is, but regardless, this just backs up our belief that printed dresses and costume brooches are totally going to be huge for Fall.

    The Most Beautiful Wedding Gift In The World

    There’s a part of me that sometimes gets a little cynical — it doesn’t help when the Guys On Our IM make me want to re-question my sexuality — but then I hear a little story like the one I’m about to tell, and my heart melts, I hear birds twittering, and a rainbow suddenly bursts across the sky. So, one of the guys who helps out on the technical side of The Frisky recently got married to his lovely girlfriend of many years. As a final present to show his appreciation and love for her, he gave her the nerdiest/most insanely romantic gift I have ever heard of. Being that he’s one of these tech guys who gets things about the Internet’s potential, he optimized the search term the most beautiful bride in the world — that way, when you type that exactly into Google.com search and click “I’m Feeling Lucky”, it takes you directly to a website he set up for his new wife. Seriously. Try it. But don’t get mad at your SEO because he’ll never come up with something as sweet and awesome.. Keep reading »

    The Weekend Hotness: Johnny Depp, Rock Star

    Crave: Anna Goberson’s “The Luxe”

    Call us suckers for cheesy chick lit. This historical fiction “teen” novel is about as appropriate for 13-year olds as Gossip Girl — and just like the hit TV show, it’s the must-read book series for 20-somethings. This is the first book in the series, about filthy rich society families in the early 1900′s. Trust us, the romance between Diana Holland and Henry Schoonmaker is such a page-turner, you won’t care about being embarrassed for reading it in public. [$12.23, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

    John McCain Chooses Sarah Palin — A WOMAN — As His Running Mate

    Hey! Did you watch the last night of the Democratic National Convention and see Barack Obama’s history making acceptance speech? Pretty powerful stuff huh? Well, not wanting to be overshadowed, John McCain woke up this morning and decided to make a little history of his own, by choosing a WOMAN as his running mate. While Geraldine Ferraro was the Democratic nominee for Vice-President alongside Walter Mondale, the Republican party has never had a female VP nominee. So, let’s take a closer look at McCain’s pick — Alaska Governor Sarah Palin — and see whether her record has the potential to swing angry Hillary Clinton supporters across party lines.
