What Is Glitter Bombing?

Glitter bombing sounds like something Barbie might do to Ken if he took a wayward glance at Skipper. But that’s not quite it—it’s a new protest tactic being used on anti-gay rights and anti-choice presidential candidates. At a public event where regular folks are able to get close to a candidate, glitter bombers walk up innocently but then toss loads of confetti on them. Back in May, Newt Gingrich got glitter bombed at a book signing, when a protester walked up his table and doused him in pink glitter. “Feel the rainbow, Newt!” the protester yelled. “Stop the hate! Stop anti-gay politics!” Then last week, while signing his book, Courage To Stand, at a conference, two CODEPINK activists walked up to former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty and glitter bombed him. “Where’s your courage to stand for gay and reproductive rights?” they asked.

Folks In Los Angeles Having The Most Sex, Folks In Philly, The Best

A new sex survey conveniently sponsored by Trojan found that people in Los Angeles are getting busy more often than the rest of us. According to the survey, Angelinos do it about 135 times a year, while the rest of us poor cads only get laid about 120 times a year. They also scored the highest in sexual adventurousness. I’m not impressed. We all would be more sexually adventurous if it was 75 degrees and sunny every day where we lived. Anyhow, don’t be too jealous of those highly sexed Angelinos. They were found to be the biggest fakers — of orgasms that is. Sigh. Actors. And their satisfaction level was not ranked number one. That prize goes to the people of Philly, who were found to do it less often, but enjoy it more. It’s quality, not quantity, right? Ring that Liberty Bell! [LA Times] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Lesbians Told Their Kiss “Violates The 10 Commandments”

  • Remember that commandment that says “Thou shalt not kiss thy girlfriend at a Minnesota Twins game?” Nope, me, neither. But some busybody security guard at Target Field took it upon himself to tell a lesbian couple that they couldn’t kiss at the stadium because “we don’t play grab-ass here” and it was breaking the 10 commandments. A spokesman for the Minnesota Twins said the guard received both a verbal and a written reprimand, but still kept his job. [CityPages.com]

One Of Hillary Clinton’s Former Interns, Sammie Spades, Is Now A Porn Star

You may want to think twice about becoming an intern for the Clintons. We know what became of Monica Lewinsky, but apparently Hillary Clinton also had a notorious intern. The star of such porno hits as “White Bubble Butts #4″, Sammie Spades once dreamed of a career in politics. In the summer of 2006, she managed to land an internship in Hillary Clinton’s Buffalo office. I guess it didn’t go so well considering that Sammie went from sporting power suits to sporting lamé bikinis in just a few short years. So what happened? Sammie says she learned that “having sex on tape was the best way to pay the bills.” Words of wisdom if I ever heard them. Hillary must be kvelling. [TMZ]
