Colorado Candidate Says Vote For Me “Because I Do Not Wear High Heels”

Politicians and stupid remarks go together like 90-degree days and Frappucinos. But you’d hope that in 2010, politicians would know better than to sling mud about each other’s gender. Recently, Jane Norton, a U.S. Senate candidate from Colorado, made the sexist comment that her opponent, Ken Buck, was not “man enough” to criticize her himself and instead had others do his dirty work. Then yesterday at a fundraiser, Buck sniped back with a remark about Norton’s femininity — by way of her footwear. When an audience member asked the Colorado cowboy why he deserved their votes, Buck responded, “Why should you vote for me? Because I do not wear high heels.”

In other words, because he’s not a woman. Or maybe a transvestite. But we think he meant a woman. Keep reading »

2 More Women Claim Al Gore Is A “Crazed Sex Poodle”

Police are investigating charges from two more women who claim they were sexually assaulted by former Vice President Al Gore, The National Enquirer reports. Last month the bombshell dropped that Gore allegedly assaulted Portland, Oregon, massage therapist Molly Hagerty in his upscale hotel room in 2006. Now the Enquirer claims two more massage therapists fended off advances from the big cheese. One source alleges Gore hired a masseuse at a Beverly Hills luxury hotel in 2007 when he was in town for the Academy Awards, removed his towel, revealing his naked body and erect penis, and told her, “Take care of this!” (Oh, the imagery!) The other incident allegedly took place at a hotel in Tokyo one year later, although no further details are provided. Keep reading »

Sarah Palin “Refudiates” To Accept Bristol’s Wedding Plans

Sarah Palin is far less than thrilled about the reunion/engagement of Bristol and Levi. In fact, she is boycotting the wedding, should it ever actually happen. This seems strange considering that the Christian thing for Levi to do is to make a wifey out of Bristol, since they already made a baby together. I wonder if Sarah will change her tune when she finds out there may be a reality show involved? Todd, on the other hand, is down for the festivities and will be walking Bristol down the aisle. The couple is hoping that he’ll convince Sarah to show up. Maybe she’ll come if they make their reception a big, family moose hunt? [Newser, PopEater] Keep reading »

Meghan McCain’s Book Cover For “Dirty Sexy Politics” Is Neither Dirty Nor Sexy

The draft cover for Meghan McCain‘s forthcoming book, Dirty Sexy Politics, starring an elephant named Thai, is a lot less dirty and sexy than we expected. But I guess she is a senator’s daughter with an image to uphold … [Hyperion Books] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin’s Long Forgotten Ex … Of 2 Months Ago

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston may be engaged now, but just two months ago, Bristol was dating a guy named Ben Barber. In a good old-fashioned Alaskan love triangle, Ben was a friend of both Bristol and Levi’s in high school. In fact, when Bristol and Levi were engaged the first time around, Ben was going to be one of Levi’s groomsmen. But, after Christmas, Ben and Bristol hooked up. “Bristol called me angry about Levi and then we just fell into place,” Ben told The Daily Beast. “It was good and then went downhill.” Keep reading »

Sarah Palin-Inspired Humor At Its Best: Shakespalin Tweeets

On Fox News and then again on Twitter, Sarah Palin used the word “refudiate.” Which, uh, doesn’t exist. But yesterday, she defended her word choice, writing on Twitter, “‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!”

Oh course, Sarah is no Shakespeare. And so some clever Twitter users created the hashtag #shakespalin, interpreting classic Shakespeare quotes through the Wasilla vernacular. After the jump, our four favorites. [Time] Keep reading »

Quotable: Levi Johnston’s Mom Hopes She’s Invited To The Wedding

“I would be absolutely devastated if I wasn’t invited to the wedding—it would be the last straw. They should elope if they can’t have the Johnstons and the Palins together. But don’t leave us out of it. That would kill me.”

Levi Johnston‘s mom, Sherry Johnston, talks to “Inside Edition” about her son’s upcoming wedding to Bristol Palin [People] Keep reading »

Meghan McCain Interviews Snooki, Snooki Thinks Her Dad Is Cute

For the past few months, I’ve said that my dream imaginary dinner party guest list would include Einstein, Snooki, Cleopatra, Meghan McCain, and Joe Strummer. I liked this grouping because no one would have any idea how to process any of the others. Or so I thought. But I just saw that Meghan has interviewed Snooki for a Q & A on the Daily Beast. Apparently, Meghan is an avid “Jersey Shore” watcher and is the one who told her papa, John, when Snooki dissed Barack Obama for including a tax on tanning in the healthcare bill.

After the jump, the choicest quotes from Snooki. Hint: she voted for McCain because she thinks he’s cute. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Thinks I’m Too Much Of A Feminist”

It seems that, as an adult, every time I date someone new, he’s a better for me than the previous guy. The current one seemed perfect at first: friendly, health-conscious, outgoing, spontaneous, but also established and responsible. We’re so, so good together. And. It’s. The. Best. Sex. I. Have. Ever. Had. We’ve been officially together for a couple of months now and it all seemed to be going swimmingly until he came over one night and dropped a bombshell: he wasn’t sure he could continue a relationship with me because I am too “political” — I vote and am an ardent feminist who’s also an activist. A gendered analysis informs my most fundamental worldview. Apparently, this is a problem. It’s not that he “opposes feminism, so much as wishes it didn’t have to exist,” however he can’t seem to grasp conceptually that my work as a feminist is towards ending gender inequities that he so easily wishes away. Is this relationship doomed? Or do you think I can be political with my friends and fellow activists and leave the politics aside in order to be with him? — Feminist Girlfriend

Sarah Palin’s PAC Releases “Mama Grizzlies” Web Video On The “Mom Awakening”

Sarah Palin‘s political action committee has released a dare-I-say touching web video, called “Mama Grizzlies,” about women in the Republican Party. Palin calls it the “mom awakening,” because she says moms always know when something is wrong and then they defend their cubs like mama grizzly bears.

So, what do we think? [YouTube] Keep reading »
