A few months back, a Slate writer crafted Sarah Palin’s speeches into poetry. Since it’s Govenor Palin’s last day in office next week, we thought there was no better way to celebrate her departure, er, tremendous service to the great state of Alaska, than with her own poetic words. After reading her poem, it should be obvious why she resigned—she’s clearly destined to become the next Maya Angelou. Click on for one of her finest pieces, On Good and Evil, which she dictated to Katie Couric during an interview on “CBS News” on September 25, 2008. [Slate] Keep reading »
U2 is one of those bands that keeps putting out good stuff, year after year after year. The group, which released its 12th studio album earlier this year, is currently traveling around the world on their 360 Degree Tour and just released a David O’Reilly animated video for their song “I’ll Go Crazy if I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight.” Plus, they has seriously cute merch. Even if we can’t make it to any of U2 concerts this summer, we’ll be there in spirit every time we put on our T-shirt (photo after the jump). [$30, U2.com]

Last Saturday night, Jon Gosselin was spotted at a restaurant with a cute blonde. Turns out, she was Star magazine reporter Kate Major, who was writing a story on Jon. They claimed the relationship was strictly platonic. Until Wednesday, when Kate said, “I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did. I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.” Then came the rumors that the two were partying together in Hamptons, very oddly with Lindsay Lohan’s dad. Then this morning, a message appeared on Star‘s website saying that Major had resigned. So what’s going on here? Keep reading »
Leave it to America’s favorite trendsetter, Michelle Obama, to remind us about versatility and resourcefulness. This week, the First Lady showed up to a White House event looking like she had lopped off her hair. Turns out, she didn’t cut an inch, but fooled everyone with a fake bob style. A wonderful way to mix things up for long-locked ladies, or to test-drive a short haircut, the ‘do is easy to achieve, and even looks good when it’s not perfect and a bit messy. Here’s how to do it.

A feminist “wish list” on Bitch Magazine‘s blog (via Daily Kos) caught our eye recently. These smarties used their noggins to figure out what feminists should focus on in the next couple decades, like not blaming the victim, ever, and supporting both stay-at-home moms and working moms.
They’ve inspired us to put together our own wish list of what would make us leap into the streets and do the happy dance. The top 25 items on our feminist wish list are after the jump. We can dream, can’t we? Keep reading »

I love Lil’ Kim and am happy she’s having a comeback as I predicted she would. But there’s no excuse for this birthday “outfit” she wore to her party at the club Mansion. I thought she had given up wearing lingerie — a teddy and a loincloth — in public in favor of more age- and occasion-appropriate attire. [South Beach, Miami, 7/24/09] Keep reading »
This week, I got a letter from a lady who is wondering if she can let her date play Moses and part the Red Sea.
“I have recently been flirting with an old hookup and we have both been hinting at wanting to rekindle the affair. We live in different cities, and he is coming to visit this weekend and I have a suspicion that we’ll be having sex. Unfortunately, my period is due to come on Friday! How do I go about having sex during my period without getting everything messy and/or grossing both of us out? I read that you can have sex while wearing the Instead Cup, so I’m totally on that one and hope it works!” —
