Sarah Palin has a beef with the presidential Christmas card: a simple portrait of the Obamas’ dog Bo by the fireplace with the line “From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season.” The puppy-pooh-poohing politico told Fox News it is “odd” that the Obamas’ card depicts Bo instead of “family, faith and freedom” — which is what all of us are aiming for when we take our holiday pics at GlamourShots, amirite? Palin also said (yes, she kept talking) that Americans can appreciate “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree,” so why can’t the First Family? I’m pretty sure her rant is supposed to translate to “Muslim Muslim Muslim Muslim Muslim COMMUNIST.”

I mean, when I talk smack about Amelia, I go down the street to do it. Keep reading »

As soldiers and Army personnel are reunited with their American friends and family, they are often leaving behind their Iraqi family — the many stray Iraqi dogs the soldiers bonded with and took care of while serving overseas. The pups provided an invaluable emotional support to the men and women and many returning soldiers are now working with a program called Operation Baghdad Pups to bring their Iraqi pets to the States.

Poor women in India have a man to thank for their low-cost menstrual supplies. Arunachalam Muruganantham risked his marriage and his family in order to revolutionize the production of maxi-pads so that they be made more affordable to poor women.
