Michele Bachmann And Sarah Palin Won’t Have A “Mud Wrestling Fight”

“They want to see two girls come together and have a mud-wrestling fight, and I’m not going to give it to them. I’ve got a lot of great respect and admiration for the governor. I appreciate her and I wish her well, and I think that this race is wide open.”

Rep. Michele Bachmann knows the media loves a good catfight. Alas, she and Sarah Palin are not taking the bait. (Yet.) They’ll leave it to these ladies to do the down ‘n’ dirty fighting, thank you. [Reuters]

Coming Soon: A Hilary Clinton Porn Spoof?

No, no, no, no, no. The other week, we introduced you to Sammie Spades, the porn star who has been in such hits as “White Bubble Butts #4m” and who, back in the day, was an intern in Hillary Clinton‘s Buffalo office. Sammie was lucky enough to snap a photo of herself with Hill that fateful summer of 2006. But now, the adult film star is leveraging the experience for evil. According to TMZ, Sammie is working on a new XXX spoof in which she’ll get to know her former boss in the Biblical sense. No, like really. Here is a photo of Sammie casting potential Hillary stand-ins for the flick. Keep reading »

Michele Bachmann Doesn’t Call Herself A Feminist

I could not have been more annoyed when Sarah Palin called herself a “feminist.” It wasn’t because I think a hairy-legged, Diva Cup-loving separatist in Berkeley should get to decide what a feminist is. (I am quite sure she would take one look at my mani/pedi and send me back to the gallows for more pubic hair braiding.) No, it pissed me off because, while there are some aspects of Palin’s life that actually are rather feminist—she’s a woman in a traditionally male job, she’s a working mom with a mostly-stay-at-home husband, etc. — she went co-opting the word “feminism” as if its hers and hers alone. As this clip of Palin appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor” illustrates, she uses the term “feminist” to suit her needs while at the same time trashing “women’s rights groups … and those [who] do not empower women.” Oh, so now you’re telling us what feminism is, lady who believes abortion should be illegal, gays and lesbians shouldn’t marry, and youngsters should be taught abstinence instead of comprehensive sexual health?

Thankfully, the feminists of America need not worry our pretty little heads about the next arch-conservative swooping in: Michele Bachmann has already come right out to say she is not a feminist. Keep reading »

Michele Bachmann: What Sexist BS Can She Expect While Running For President?

Rep. Michele Bachmann formally announced on Monday she is seeking the Republican nomination for President. The feminist within me says, “Yay, someone with a vagina running for president!” Followed by a vehement, “OH HELL NO.” Just because a woman is running for president does not mean all women should support her. Just like Sarah Palin did, Bachmann painfully illustrates this point: She is bigoted against gays and lesbians, opposes legal abortion, and spoke out against a change in the IRS code to make breast pumps for nursing mothers tax deductible. Those are just a few of the policy reasons why Bachmann would make a terrible president. Keep reading »

Bill Clinton’s My Little Pony Knowledge Is Put To The Test

When I was a kid, I begged my parents for months to get me a “Mothers The Pony.” They’d go to toy store after toy store, and no one would have any idea what they were talking about because I’d gotten the name wrong—I, of course, meant that I wanted a My Little Pony. Apparently, Bill Clinton knows more about the pastel ponies than I did. Over the weekend, Peter Sagal interviewed Bill on NPR. After asking some fun questions like, “What is more fun—being president or former president?” and “Did Hilary have to give you any lessons in standing to the side and gazing adoringly?,” Peter got to the segment of his show called “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” where he asks people questions about a topic they really shouldn’t know all that much about. The category he decided to give Bill: My Little Pony. Keep reading »

Florence Henderson Got Crabs From The Then Mayor Of New York

“I was lonely. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it. Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata. He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”

—We suspected that Florence Henderson, aka Carol Brady, led quite the swinging life in the ’60s and ’70s when we found out about her shenanigans with Barry Williams, aka Greg Brady. But in her new memoir, Life Is Not A Stage, Florence reveals that she once had a one-night stand with New York mayor John Lindsay, even though she was married at the time. And, uh, brought home a little souvenir. Eek! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
