You can stll have Sarah Palin fatigue and be just a tiny bit curious about what’s in Frank Bailey’s Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years. According to gossip blog Gawker, which obtained a copy, Bailey based the book on 60,000 emails between he and Palin. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The Men’s Only Lawfirm

  • A law firm in Jacksonville, Florida, only takes on mens’ cases because they say the family law system is biased against fathers. Its slogan is “Men Only. Family Law Only,” which has gotten the attention of the Florida Bar Association for potential gender discrimination. The firm, which only has one female lawyer on staff, says they’re just focusing on mens’ rights, which may mean they’re focusing on “mens’ rights.” [Jacksonville.com]

Radio Station Contest Gives Away Mail Order Bride As Prize

Wash your eyes after reading this post: A New Zealand radio station is on blast from human rights groups, the international community, and the entire Ukraine for announcing a “Win a Wife” contest on Valentine’s Day in which the winner is flown to Eastern Europe, with interpreters, of course, to meet the mail-order bride of his dreams. The Rock FM — whose charming tagline is “Bands, Babes, Balls ‘n Bull” — will let the guy choose a woman from the database of Endless Love, an online “matchmaking” service between Ukrainian women and Kiwi men. After two teleconferences and as much instant messaging as they can handle — all translated for free, of course — they will then fly him from New Zealand to Ukraine on March 23 with a dozen roses, 12 nights of accommodation, and $2,000 spending money.

You know, I would be more offended by this if it didn’t sound so much like the plot of “The Bachelor.” Keep reading »

Today In Baby News: A Kid Named “Facebook” And A Wainwright/Cohen Love Child

Congrats to Facebook, which officially has its first namesake. An Egyptian man named his baby girl Facebook Jamal Ibrahim to express his gratitude for the role the social networking site played in the revolution. That is very moving, but we hope the name doesn’t become trendy. I wonder if they’ll call her “Face” or “Book” for short. And more very important baby news after the jump. Keep reading »

John Boehner Accused Of Cheating, National Enquirer Reports

Cue the “boner” jokes: Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) may have cheated with two young women, according to an alleged New York Times investigation reported by The National Enquirer. Gossips in D.C. are apparently abuzz with the news that Boehner boned Lisbeth Lyons, a lobbyist, and Leigh LaMora, a former press secretary to Colorado ex-Congressman Joel Hefley, the Enquirer reports. And the Enquirer was right about John Edwards, after all! The Speaker of the House and his wife, Deborah, have been married for 37 years and when she was contacted in late January by the Enquirer about the cheating allegations, she reportedly kept mum. I hope the Boehner cheating rumors are not true, because that will really give him something to cry about. [The National Enquirer via FireDogLake] Keep reading »
