Election year silliness is in full swing.

Two days ago, Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen appeared on “Anderson Cooper 360″ to discuss the Republicans’ problems with women and Mitt Romney’s use of his wife, Ann Romney, on the campaign trail to talk about economic issues affecting women. 

“Guess what?” Rosen said. “His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing.” She also called Mitt “so old-fashioned when it comes to women.”

Ann Romney then joined Twitter and sent out her first tweet: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”  

And all hell broke loose. Keep reading »

Nothing is quite so entertaining as people who don’t recognize their own hypocrisy, huh? Recently, our hero, Oklahoma State Sen. Constance Johnson (D), introduced an “Every Sperm Is Sacred” law to try to outlaw male masturbation. Legislators in OK have been concerned with banning abortion rights, including a “fetal personhood” amendment which would define a fertilized egg as a person, thereby criminalizing all abortion and IVF treatment.  So, Sen. Johnson thought politicians should turn their attention to all the poor little spermies being spanked out in the shower. ”If we’re taking about protecting life, then let’s talk about life at it’s very basic beginning,” she told “The Daily Show” last night.

  • The Wrap has obtained an “open letter” released by Joe Ezsterhas, a film collaborator with Mel Gibson, detailing concerns he has about Gibson and his mental state regarding his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. The letter claims he heard Gibson say he was “going to have her killed” by CIA agents he had befriended and even talked about kiling her in front of Ezsterhas’ 15-year-old son. The nine-page letter also says Gibson described hitting her. Gibson’s response last night was to say Ezsterhas’ letter is all lies. [The Wrap, TMZ]

That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet.” Hoooo boy. [Yahoo]

Just over a year ago, my son Felix was born via gestational surrogacy. He came out of me nine months early and because of my broken belly, his babycake was baked in a wonderful angel’s oven and now — I can’t believe it — he’s a year old and walking. He has expanded my capacity for joy a thousand-fold. Keep reading »

  • Justin Bieber says in the new Seventeen that he “just tries to make [Selena Gomez] happy, that’s all,” by treating her like a princess. Awww. He goes on to say “I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess.” I can’t tell if this is a barf-ily sweet sentiment or painfully unrealistic dating advice tailored to girls who grew up in “princess culture.”  [PopCrush]
