Christine O’Donnell Declares “I’m You”


Christine O’Donnell‘s latest campaign ad — in which she ably reads a teleprompter in a monotone voice — has her proclaiming, “I’m not a witch.” She only dabbled, people, just like Bill Clinton smoked pot, but didn’t inhale. The Tea Party Senate candidate in the state of Delaware claims she will go to Washington and “do what you’d do.” Which is weird, because the first three things I always do when I arrive in D.C. are masturbate, freak dance, and visit a psychic.

Ack! The Last “Cathy” Comic Strip

All good things must come to an end — and so it is with Cathy Guisewite’s comic strip, Cathy. After a 24-year run, Cathy said her final “ack” this past weekend. In the final strip, she and hubby Irving (whom she dated for, oh, 20 years) announce to Cathy’s parents that they’re having a baby girl. So long, old chum. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
