Jon Stewart Leading A March To Washington, And You’re Invited!


www.thedailyshow.com


Jon Stewart wants to start a revolution—one dedicated to calming people down and ending the drawing of Hitler mustaches on people who aren’t Hitler. The best part? You can join him. Stewart recently announced on his show that he will be leading the “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington D.C’s National Mall on October 30th. “It’s real,” he promises. This “Million Moderate March” is Stewart’s effort to get the 80 percent of us that are politically unmoved to get the other 20 percent on both sides of the aisle to calm down, so we can all work on creating solutions, instead of shouting or doing nothing at all. So who is going to set aside their Devil’s Night to join the “Rally to Restore Sanity”? Me! [PopEater] Keep reading »

Carla Bruni Sells Out Michelle Obama

French first lady Carla Bruni was supposedly extremely unhappy with the unauthorized biography Carla: A Secret Life, which claimed that she had extensive plastic surgery and was a man eater who still flirts to make hubby Nicolas Sarkozy jealous. So she decided to participate in another biography, Carla and the Ambitious, by Michael Darmon and Yves Derai. But it seems to me that many of the claims in this new book are just as inflammatory. It claims that her husband would be happy to serve just one term—which should go over well with voters?—and similarly describes Carla as a “femme fatale.”

But perhaps the most interesting tidbit in the book? When she totally sells out Michelle Obama. Keep reading »

Senatorial Candidate Christine O’Donnell Tells You Not To Masturbate

Last week we introduced you to Christine O’Donnell, Delaware’s Republican Senate candidate who told us not to masturbate on MTV’s “Sex in the 90s.” And now Rachel Maddow has dug up the clip. Christine was the president and founder of The S.A.L.T. (The Savior’s Alliance for Lifting the Truth) which taught kids about the many dangers of masturbation. First and foremost … it’s selfish! Gasp! Secondly, it’s considered adultery because it involves lust. But most importantly, if your partner can please him or herself, why have a partner at all? Good point, Christine! She seems to have the kind of solid logic and sense of morality that would be an asset to the US Senate. Thou dost protesteth too much. How long before she writes a memoir about her double life as a sex addict? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Nancy Pelosi Cast As The “Wicked Witch Of The West” In Campaign Ad

She’s mellllllllting … and she’s the Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi is the cackling Wicked Witch of the West in a new “Wizard of Oz”-themed campaign commercial by Republican Congressional candidate John Dennis. An actress playing Pelosi flies in on a jet, jabbing Dorothy, Toto and pals with the end of her broom and shrieking that her flying monkey henchmen, the IRS, will come after them. That is, until John Dennis throws a bucket of water in her face. Keep reading »

Quotable: Date Rich, Older Men So You Can Inherit Cash, Advises Italy’s Prime Minister

“I said to a girl to look for a wealthy boyfriend. This suggestion is not unrealistic. … [Women favor older men because] he’s old. He dies and I inherit.” — Italy’s prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, speaking at a convention this weekend. Mind you, this particular 72-year-old man’s wife is divorcing him over rumors of call-girl trysts and hanky-panky with an 18-year-old model. Perhaps he’s not the best person to be doling out relationship advice? [AP]

A Senate Candidate Who Is Anti-Masturbation

Christine O’Donnell has all the makings of an East Coast Sarah Palin. She’s a candidate running for the Senate in Delaware. More specifically, she’s a Tea Party member who is challenging Republican Mike Castle in the upcoming primary. For a while, she looked like a longshot, but all of a sudden, she’s picked up a bit of steam. Which has folks very worried because let’s just say that O’Donnell has some pretty extreme views. Years ago, O’Donnell made an appearance on the MTV series “Sex in the ’90s.” The point she wanted to make: masturbation is evil. Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Accuses Sarah Palin Of Relying On A “Push-Up Bra” To Get What She Wants

Vanity Fair has a new smear piece about Sarah Palin and thankfully this one was not dictated by Levi Johnston. According to this latest hit job, Alaska’s most famous pitbull in lipstick offered to get Bristol Palin and Levi married “if it would be good for the campaign,” threatens her employees, and is prone to ‘F-word’-filled arguments with her husband, Todd. My personal favorite part of the piece is where Levi extends a private apology to the Palins and the hockey mom asks him if he’s wearing “a wire” and if she is being recorded. (He was not.) That public apology that Levi issued? Allegedly, it was written by Todd Palin himself. Levi, through his lawyer, told Vanity Fair, “I had nothing to do with putting that statement together.”

But that’s not all … Keep reading »

The Kate Spade Wedge: The Politician’s Secret Wardrobe Weapon

Forget Hillary Clinton‘s pantsuit (gladly) and Sarah Palin‘s banana clips (done). Here’s a political fashion statement far more palatable and subtle. According to The New York Times, female politicians pay worship to a particular shoe, a Kate Spade wedge called the Halle. Apparently, they’re a bit of a thing in Washington (one congressional candidate tells the Times that she learned about the kicks from someone who worked with Hillary). Comfortable, chic, and modest, it’s easy to see why the Halle would be favored by young political types who need to negotiate between poles of being too sexy or extremely dowdy.

Democratic Women Will Raise Your Taxes AND They’re Ugly

This is pretty terrible: The Republican Party’s website for a state Senate race in Minnesota published this YouTube video of “hot” GOP women like Sarah Palin set to the song “She’s A Lady” and then “ugly” liberal women like Hillary Clinton set to “Who Let The Dogs Out?” Keep reading »

The Mayor Of Wasilla Tells Levi Johnston Not To Run

Verne Rupright, otherwise known as the current mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, wasn’t too excited when he heard that Levi Johnston was gunning for his job for the sake of a reality TV show. The mayor chatted with The Daily Beast today to poke a few holes in Levi’s plan. First issue: he’s not even up for reelection until 2011. And he had some choice words for whippersnapper Levi. “My advice would be get your high-school diploma and keep your clothes on, voters like it,” Rupright said. Keep reading »
