New York Governor David Paterson Denies Sex Scandal Rumors

Very Important Question: if former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned amidst a prostitution scandal, is the “Luv Guv,” what will we call the current governor, David Paterson, if the rumors that he’s cheating on his wife are true?

On Jan. 18, gossip column Page Six reported that two eyewitnesses had seen Paterson canoodling with family friend, Jennifer Jones, and kissing her neck at a New Jersey steak house. Then, on Jan. 30, Page Six dropped another bombshell: A state trooper patrolling the governor’s executive mansion claimed to have caught Paterson “snuggling” in a utility closet with a woman who was not his wife.

Alas, we may never have to think of a nickname more than “Luv Guv #2.” Gov. Paterson met with the Associated Press yesterday and vehemently denied all allegations against him. “For the last couple of weeks, I have been the subject of … a spate of outrageous rumors about me,” Paterson griped, slamming the media as “callous and sleazy.” Keep reading »

Voters Prefer Male Politicians Tubby And Female Politicians Slim

Hey ladies, if you’re planning on running for office, a new study shows that you’d better hit the gym. But dudes, start packing in the burgers because apparently people prefer their male politicians on the fatter side. Once again we women get screwed. Voters are allegedly under the impression that chubby male politicians are more reliable, honest, dependable, and capable of dealing with stress. Meanwhile, they believe the opposite of female counterparts. Thanks for the additional pressure. Not that I was going to run for office, but it’s always a nice reminder that people prefer their womenfolk svelte. Keep reading »

Celebs Weigh In On Obama’s State Of The Union

Last night, while I was watching President Barack Obama‘s State of the Union address, I went on Twitter so I could publish my opinion about it. Now, I love politics and not many things can tear me away from the news when something important is happening. But John Mayer managed to do just that with two amusingly stupid Tweets. “Watching the State of the Union Address. Wishing so very badly that Biden had a ponytail,” he wrote. Later, he followed up with, “More people would watch the State of the Union Address if President Obama introduced a new gadget at the end. Just saying.” Thankfully, Mayer wasn’t the only one tweeting about the speech. More after the jump. Keep reading »

Scott Brown’s Wife Likes Giving Handjobs

Senator-elect Scott Brown wasn’t the only one who showed some skin in the ’80s. Warning: this might make you uncomfortable. Before the Senator’s wife, Gail Huff, was a legit news anchor, she was a music video girl of the slutty variety. Check her out in this 1984 Digney Fingus video so appropriately entitled “The Girl With The Curious Hand.” In case you missed her, she is the girl in the bikini giving a hand job to a tube of sunscreen. Looks like she’s not the only woman in the family with talent. I guess we know where her eligible daughters Ayla and Arianna learned how to strut around in a bikini. No doubt she passed down her love of music. And sunscreen. Anyone else starting to think the Browns may be a little bit … er … different? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Cute Or Creepy? New MA Senator Scott Brown Announces His Daughters Are “Available”

Eeeek, you think your parents are embarrassing? Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat in Massachusetts last night and used his victory speech to announce his college-aged daughters are single and ready to mingle. Arianna, who is pre-med at Syracuse, and Ayla, who appeared on “American Idol” and is a student at Boston College, stood by their dad’s side while he told millions of people watching on TV they were “both available”—then when corrected by Ayla, announced only “Ayla is definitely available.” The crowd started laughing and cheering and at this point his wife, Gail, shrieked, “Stop!”

China’s “Bride Shortage”: That’s What Happens When Society Devalues Its Women
