Watch Video

I would watch two hours of Michael Fassbender reading his grocery list, so his new sex addiction drama, “Shame,” is high up on the list of things I’m willing to pay $12 for. Let me spell this out for you: Michael Fassbender and sex. Michael Fassbender and sex. I’ll be seeing “Shame.” Will you? [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Ron Paul’s Traveling Eyebrow: A Toupee Or A Caterpiller?

Ron Paul eyebrows

Either GOP presidential contender Ron Paul was wearing eyebrow toupees during the GOP debate on Tuesday night, or the brown caterpillar nesting atop his eyebrows decided to go for a walk at a rather inopportune moment. Those are the only two possibilities I can think of to explain why Mr. Paul’s right eyebrow seemed to fall off his face onstage. The New York Times, always atop pressing political matters, called the Paul campaign spokesman, who huffed that the inquiry was “stupid” or “insulting.” Instead, the spokesman blamed “allergies” on the Dartmouth campus where the debate was held. The poor spokesman was just doing his job, but I am filing that baloney under Vanity-Related Excuses About As Plausible As Bristol Palin’s Plastic Surgery Splurge Being For “Medical Reasons.”

Today’s Lady News: House Passes “Protect Life Act”

Today's Lady News
  • Yesterday the House of Representatives passed the “Protect Life Act,” a bill that prohibits federal funds under Obama’s healthcare reform from going towards any health insurance plans that cover abortion services. You should watch Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) statement on this crappy bill here. [Washington Post]
  • People with eating disorders are fighting to have health insurance companies cover treatment of their mental illness the same way it covers treatment for other mental illnesses, like depression. [New York Times]
  • GOP wannabe presidential candidate Mitt Romney said something positive about lesbian and gay couples and adoption rights, sort of. Sigh. [Think Progress]

Gloria Steinem on Chelsea Lately

Chelsea Handler and Gloria Steinem have been hanging out and I’m never invited. It’s cool. I’m not, like, devastated or anything. But I’m just saying, if Arianna Huffington walked up to Chelsea at a Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women event and lectured her how she’s “so maternal” and “needs” to have children, I would have had Chelsea’s back, too.  Chelsea and Gloria and I can be “CGJ,” — sort of like “MVP” but feminist and smart and awesome.  [E!
