Why I Don’t Want Hillary Clinton For Vice President

hillary clinton photo

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 »

Meet Krystal Ball, The VA Candidate Whose Phallus-Sucking Photos Have Hit The Internet

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!

Girl Talk: Go Ahead, You Can Call Me Ugly

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 »

Christine O’Donnell Declares “I’m You”


Christine O’Donnell‘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.

Why Washington, D.C., Won’t Be Getting A National Women’s History Museum

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.

Today’s Lady News: Meg Whitman Accused Of Employing An Undocumented Maid

  • Meg Whitman’s undocumented maid claimed in a press conference today that she was fired after she asked the California gubernatorial candidate and her husband for help gaining legal status. Nicky Diaz Santillan worked for the Whitman/Harsh family for nine years and claimed they never asked for her legal status before employing her. When Santillan was let go, she claims Meg Whitman told her, “From now on, you don’t know me and I don’t know you.” Her campaign, which touts that Meg Whitman is “tough as nails” on illegal immigration, says the former housekeeper is lying.

  • Someone asked President Obama about his support for late-term abortions at a recent town hall-style Q&A. The president replied that abortions should be “safe, legal and rare” and that families “should be the ones making the decision” to have children, not the government. He did not directly address the late-term abortion question, however, other than to say laws prohibit them and “people still argue and disagree about it.” [CNN]

Today’s Lady News: Radio Show Says Lady Candidate Has A “Tight Little Butt”

  • The WRKO radio show in Boston referred to Republican state treasurer candidate Karyn Polito on air as having a “tight little butt,” after a listener called in asking if she was “hot.” Polito responded that their comments were “over the line” and not “right.” Oh, damn, where’s that post I wrote earlier today about sexist campaign slurs? [Boston Herald]
  • But wait! There’s more! You know you want to hear what Rush Limbaugh thinks of Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. “I’d rather look at [herl] than Mike Castle,” Limbaugh said. “I think she’s kind of cute.” Oof. [Media Matters for America]
  • Depression is no more likely to occur in teenagers who have abortions than with teenagers who carry the pregnancy to term, according to researchers from Oregon State University and University of California San Francisco. Researchers culled data on 289 teens and found a negative psychological outcome of abortion was not pronounced. [UPI]

Study Finds Sexist Comments Hurt Female Candidates In The Polls

Sexist slurs hurt a female candidate’s campaign more than her policy stances, according to a study on voter attitudes. That’s bad news for the likes of Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Senator Kristen Gillibrand, who have been called “she-goat,” “mean girl,” and ” “the hottest member of the Senate,” respectively. A small survey, sponsored by the Women’s Media Center, the Women’s Campaign Forum Foundation, and Political Parity, as part of their “Name It, Change It” campaign to fight campaign sexism, also found that the typical advice to women to “ignore the attacks” was misguided. Instead of ignoring sexist characterizations, Ms. Candidate X most benefited by bashing down the remarks early on. Keep reading »

Female French Politician’s Sexy Slip-Up

People who live in France are laughing and shaking their heads—once again— at Rachida Dati, a former justice minister, who mistakenly said “fellation” (which means fellatio, or oral sex, in French) instead of “inflation” during a televised interview. Dati’s gaffe: “Some demand profitability of 20 to 25 per cent even when there is hardly any fellation.” What might have been a simple mishap for anyone else is instead a huge source of embarrassment for Dati, considering her unfriendly rep in France thanks to tons of tabloid action linking her sexually to Sarkozy, as well as speculation that she spread rumors about Carla Bruni having an affair. Dati has since apologized for her unfortunate wording, although an apology will probably do little to gain ground in her losing popularity contest. [Radio France International] Keep reading »

Teresa Lewis To Be The First Woman Executed In 5 Years

Tomorrow the United States will execute Teresa Lewis, 41, the first woman to be put to death in the last five years, by lethal injection. In 2002, Lewis left the door of her Danville, Virginia, home unlocked so her lover, Matthew Shallenberger, and his companion, Rodney Fuller, could murder her husband and 25-year-old stepson with shotguns she had purchased. Her husband didn’t die immediately after being shot, but Lewis waited 45 minutes before she called the police. Lewis allegedly wanted to kill her family so she could collect life insurance and inheritance; she allegedly offered sex with her 16-year-old daughter if the murderers went through with the killings.

Lewis’ lawyers have claimed that she is borderline mentally retarded, was allegedly addicted to painkillers, and therefore was not an appropriate candidate for the death penalty. Keep reading »
