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 »
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 »
January 22 is a notable date in history most of us probably don’t discuss too much in school: Today is the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court‘s Roe vs. Wade decision which effectively legalized abortion in the United States. Do you think anyone could have foreseen how, 37 years later, abortion would still be so controversial?
After the jump, let’s take a look at what abortion supporters, as well as abortion opponents, have planned for this day: Keep reading »
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 »
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!”

So, guess who praised New Jersey‘s recent decision not to legalize gay marriage? Why, Dina Matos, the scorned ex-wife of Jim McGreevey, New Jersey’s former governor who was caught having a homosexual affair and famously came out as a “gay American,” of course!

What a mess: the one-child policy instituted in China in the 1980s to control the population has caused a total lopsidedness in the dating pool. A recent study by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences found that in 10 years there will be a serious “bride shortage,” as 24 million Chinese men will have no partner of marrying age. And you thought you had trouble getting married … Keep reading »
The Obama White House is notoriously crush-worthy. I will fully fess up to having crushed on I-can-dunk-and-assist-the-president Reggie Love and wordsmith hottie Jon Favreau. I’ve also always been into Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget. He’s distinguished, handsome, good with numbers, and very powerful—I’ve even suggested that Jennifer Aniston and Elin Nordgren give the 41-year-old divorcee a holler. But my crush may be over. The NY Post has dug up some dirt on Orszag. For a long time, he was dating Claire Milonas, a Greek shipping heiress. She had his baby in mid-November. Only, by that point Orszag had already broken up with her and started dating ABC News anchor Bianna Golodryga, who he met at the White House Correspondents Dinner—those two are now engaged. But, according to the math, Milonas must have been three months pregnant when the pair broke up. And it sure looks like Orszag might have ditched her for the better (though not richer) option. Hardly a scandal of John Edwards proportions, but enough for me to scribble out the heart around his name in my notebook. [NY Post] Keep reading »
