Supreme Court Justice David Souter is a wackadoodle. He’s eaten the same lunch everyday for 19 years—yogurt and an apple. He refuses to get a computer. And even though he was appointed by Republican George Bush, he usually sides with the liberally-minded folks on the bench. Now that Souter is retiring, we hope Obama will fill the seat with someone equally as interesting.
Rumor has it that Obama wants a woman for the job — which warms our hearts and our wombs, since there’s only one woman left on the court, and her health isn’t so great. At the top of Obama’s short list: solicitor general Elena Kagan, judge Sonia Sotomayer, and Jennifer Granholm, governor of Michigan. Each met privately with the President yesterday in Washington, DC. Who should the seat go to? We shun, shag, or marry this girl-power menagerie after the jump. Keep reading »
Bristol Palin and OctoMom take note! The UK’s National Health Service is using scare tactics to prevent teen pregnancy. This public service announcement doesn’t make a ton of sense, but it’s disturbing. Screaming children run across a playground, crowd around one girl, and suddenly a baby’s head pops out from between her legs. The camera is “Blair Witch Project” shaky. Now we feel nauseous, thanks to the shaking and the bloody head. [TresSugar] Keep reading »
Last night was the battle of the roommates on “American Idol.” Xenu-enthusiasts Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise watched as the always dramatic Adam Lambert and the quietly confident Kris Allen duked it out vocally. In round one, each one chose his favorite song of the competition. Adam brought back “Mad World,” and Kris made us swoon with “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone.” Next, producer Simon Fuller picked the songs—Adam got Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” while Kris funked out Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.” Finally, we suffered through the contestants’ renditions of “No Boundaries,” co-written by judge Kara DioGuardi. Equally awe inspiring, in a bad way, was Paula in a day-glow green getup and Simon in a shirt unbuttoned to his bellybutton.
I know neither of these guys really wants to win because they both read my post last week about how guys who take home the “American Idol” title are eternally cursed. But since I can’t make up my mind about who I want to win, here’s a side-by-side look at these vocal monsters. Keep reading »
When Bristol Palin got knocked up at age 17, she made national headlines. We applauded her for realizing that “everyone should be abstinent or whatever but it’s not realistic at all,” and we were hopeful (for three seconds) that she would turn this unfortunate situation into a positive one by promoting safe sex. But when she said seconds later that “you should just wait ten years,” we got on her case. The girl is a walking contradiction. And it hasn’t stopped there. Keep reading »

Girls are sugar and spice and everything nice, and they may make you … liberal? A new study shows that those who have daughters are more likely to be Democrats than those who have sons. Why? Because parents with daughters, particularly fathers, feel strongly about gender equality and reproductive rights, making them sympathetic to left-wing parties. Or, in the words of one commenter, “Maybe this explains why my dad has become so much more liberal as he’s gotten older. (I’m the third of his three daughters. No sons.) Or maybe it’s because his Republican party went all bat-s**t insane.”

Beyonce tells Self that her dream of winning an Oscar is what keeps her in shape. She has a painting of the golden statue in her gym, she explains. “I look at it, and I’m like, OK, I have to stay in shape,” she said. I don’t get the connection between winning an Oscar and staying in shape. Jennifer Hudson proved that smaller sizes aren’t the ones winning Academy Awards. Maybe Beyonce was trying to take a dig at Hudson, who didn’t look her best when she won the Oscar for her role in “Dreamgirls,” which costarred Beyonce. Let’s face it, B. isn’t a great actress — she’s slightly better than mediocre — so she should probably give up her dream or at least stop talking about it. Her performances as a singer/dancer to be more entertaining. Saying her love of unitards forces her to stay in shape would have made more sense. [E! Online] Keep reading »
Bravo isn’t stupid. When they hit on a show that works, there is little deviation from the original formula. On last night’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the gals from Jersey proved they were serious housewife material. I found five similarities between the Garden State cast and those from the OC, Atlanta, and NYC, but, trust me, these women fit Bravo’s “Housewives”-bot mold perfectly. Here’s why … Keep reading »
