If your candidate loses, it’s time for a new set of coping mechanisms to deal with the outcome. Here’s a list of 10 ways to cope with a president you didn’t vote for. Keep reading »
Today, I got up at five o’clock this morning to vote. At the polling place, I waited in line for two and a half hours. The line snaked down a hall, around a corner, back up the hall, and then all the way around again along the wall. Some people were voting for Obama, and some people were voting for McCain — but, in a way, it didn’t really matter. No matter who you’re voting for, or who wins, this is quite possibly the most important presidential election in US history. And it’s pretty awesome that we get to be a part of making history by voting.

We’ve been trying to figure out why people (um, men) find Sarah Palin sexy, but not the other women involved in the presidential campaign. Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain and Jill Biden are all very attractive, stylish women but haven’t been branded with the “sexy-label” like Palin. We think all this business about Palin being sexy is her own doing. Keep reading »
“Ms. Palin frightens me both for my country and for my grandchildren.” — Jane B., 73
In late August, Lyra Kilston, 31, and Quinn Latimer, 30, two not-very-political editors for Modern Painters magazine, found themselves suddenly immersed in the Presidential campaign. Enraged over the selection of Governor Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee, they sent an e-mail to 40 friends.
“We are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash, incompetent, and all together devastating choice for Vice President,” the New Yorkers wrote. “She was chosen by John McCain specifically because he believes that American women will vote for any female candidate regardless of their qualifications. He is wrong.” Keep reading »
