We all know sexism is alive and well in America. Hollywood’s seemingly endless celebration of the chubby, schlubby, slacker dude is sexist as hell, given that chubby, schlubby, slacker girls get nowhere in Tinseltown, least of all the big screen. And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I wasn’t even a Hillary supporter, so this isn’t just a P.U.M.A.’s bitterness talking.
The latest accusation of sexism in the media comes from Governor Sarah Palin, the Vice Presidential nominee for the McCain campaign. Her supporters, her spokespeople, and conservative commentators like Bill O’Reilly assert that she is the target of sexist smear campaign.

I have this theory that Keira Knightley plays the same character in nearly every movie and gets lauded by critics as if she’s reinvented the wheel every time. With the exception of films like Domino, The Jacket, and Love Actually, Knightley is always cast a period film heroine from an upper-crust family who slums it with a poor guy or wins the heart of a rich cad. To prove my theory, I’ve assembled pictures of six of Keira’s most famous characters. See if you can match the letter of the image to the number of the film. FYI, I’ll reveal the answers at the end of the day, so check back.
THE FILMS: Atonement (1); The Duchess (2); King Arthur (3); Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (4); Pride & Prejudice (5); Silk (6)

1. Maddow consistently holds her own with loud mouths like Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as a regular panelist on MSNBC. She’s so impressive that she scored a hosting gig for her own news show, The Rachel Maddow Show, starting tonight at 9pm on MSNBC.
2. Despite reports, she refused to be “prettied up” for her new show. And thank goodness – like we need another fembot anchor with too much eyeliner and teased hair.
