Krystal Ball, the Virginia Congressional candidate whose sexy photos were posted by a right-wing smear blog attempting to discredit her campaign, never intended to steal the 24-hour news cycle away from Christine “I Am Not A Witch” O’Donnell. But 28-year-old Ball has no desire to feed tabloid fodder. She spent a week giving media interviews and even released a brilliant statement on how she would not let dirty politics humiliate her. But this morning, Ball announced she is back to focusing on her campaign. In a statement released the morning, provided to us by Krystal Ball For Congress, she said:
“I felt it was important to speak out on this issue and I have done so. I believe that I was treated fairly by the media and able to answer to the voters of Virginia. Now they deserve a discussion regarding issues such as reforming government, getting people back to work and improving our education system. I feel deeply blessed to be interviewing for the job of Congresswoman in front of the citizen’s of the first district of Virginia. I will not be granting any additional interviews on this issue for the remainder of the campaign.”

Brotherly love, shmotherly love. At a rally held by Barack Obama on Sunday in Philadelphia, peeps went a little wild. First, someone in the audience threw a book at the prez. Shortly after, another guy ripped off his clothes and streaked.
So who were these upstanding citizens? Keep reading »
Krystal Ball, the 28-year-old Virginia Congressional candidate whose embarrassing private photos were dug up by a right-wing blog and posted on the internet, released the public statement today of my feminist wet dreams.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may trade places with Vice-President Joe Biden on the 2012 election ticket, veteran journalist Bob Woodward said yesterday. “President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the 2008 primaries,” Woodward told CNN yesterday, adding that the switcheroo is “on the table.” Did Woodward pull this speculation out of his ass? Who knows. But if Hillary Clinton did run as Obama’s #2 and he was re-elected, she would become the first-ever female VP in history.
You know what? As cool as it would be to have a woman as VP, I don’t want Hillary Clinton to run. Keep reading »
This election season just got dirty: Krystal Ball, 29, a Congressional candidate in Virginia, has seen embarrassing private photos taken at a Christmas party dug up by a right-wing blog and posted on the internet. In the saucy pics, Ball wears a Santa hat and thigh-high stockings and is leading her then-husband, who was wearing reindeer ears and a red dildo on his nose, around by a leash. In a couple of the pics, a giggling Ball has her mouth on the big red peen. Scandal!

Late last month, Republican firebrand Ann Coulter spoke at Homocon, an event organized by GOProud, an organization of gay conservatives. In her remarks, she tried to convince gays and lesbians in attendance that they shouldn’t want, or have the right, to get married. The week before that, following her victory in the Delaware GOP primary, Christine O’Donnell became a household name (and a political punch line), mostly thanks to her arch-conservative views on sex and masturbation.
More recently, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi predicted that the U.S. military’s controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy would be dead by the end of this year. And in a few days, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be heading to the Balkans to attend talks between Serbia and Kosovo on Kosovar independence.
Important issues, sure, but let’s not let them distract us from what really matters, people: Are these ladies hot or not? Keep reading »
‘s latest campaign ad — in which she ably reads a teleprompter in a monotone voice — has her proclaiming, “I’m not a witch.” She only dabbled, people, just like Bill Clinton smoked pot, but didn’t inhale. The Tea Party Senate candidate in the state of Delaware claims she will go to Washington and “do what you’d do.” Which is weird, because the first three things I always do when I arrive in D.C. are masturbate, freak dance, and visit a psychic.

Two senators are blocking the creation of a women’s history museum in our nation’s capital because they are afraid it will become a shrine to abortion. I wish I was kidding. Sens. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) put a “hold” on a bill that would sell land near the National Mall to build the museum, which would be funded through private donations (including from Meryl Streep, who has pledged $1 million towards it). The senators are claiming that the land isn’t being sold at fair market value (who needs women’s history? Let’s put a Target there!) and that there are already many museums dedicated to the ladies. The Women’s Museum, which is associated with the Smithsonian, is located all the way in Dallas however, and the existing museums in Washington, D.C., focus on niche interests, such as the arts.
