Are you looking to hire a 40-something woman with managerial experience and a great head of hair for your company? Someone who can wink on command? Well, you are in luck, because Sarah Palin has posted her resume on LinkedIn. On it, she lists her stints as governor of Alaska, vice presidential nominee, and chairperson of the oil and gas conservation commission. Her specialties? “Attacking ‘business as usual,’ Oil Companies, Good Old Boy Networks, Government waste, Earmarks, and Pork Barrels. Strong experience within the Executive Branch of Government.” (She forgot capitalizing Random words! And reading Playgirl!) She’s interested in “job inquiries, business deals, and getting back in touch.” And she’s been recommended by five whole people. How can you not hire her? [CNN] Keep reading »

Well, at least according to this imaginative artistic rendering created by illustrator Drew Friedman. But, really, why not? We here at The Frisky are waiting with bated breath for Sarah Palin‘s grandbaby-daddy Levi Johnston to take it all off for Playgirl. Why wouldn’t his mother-in-law-never-to-be be a little curious about what the young buck looks like in the buff? Of course, who knows how much he’ll actually show in the magazine spread. If he pulls a Burt Reynolds, his package may remain a mystery to us and the vice president who wasn’t. [The Daily What] Keep reading »
I almost felt like I was cruising an online dating site the first time I scrolled through the photos of all the powerful foxes on the new blog Hottest Heads of State. As the name implies, it features 172 of the best-looking men and women ruling the world. Power and good looks are a deadly combination; it was like setting my profile filter to: “I am a woman looking for men, hot, powerful, and international.” So skipping Barack Obama (#15!), check out the top five heads of state I wouldn’t mind dating.

California’s Kindergarten Cop has pumped up a decade-old law for fining paparazzi who illegally take photos or recordings. Now, in addition to the photographer, celebrities will be allowed to sue the outlets who buy and use the offensively obtained material. That might not strike most of us as an extreme measure, but lawsuits are daunting. They’re already a major expense for media outlets whose bread and butter is broadcasting private moments celebrities try to indulge in.
People were shocked when President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace prize today for his initiatives to reduce nuclear weapons, reduce conflict in the Muslim world, and promote worldwide diplomacy. Why so shocking, since these are Nobel-worthy causes? Because Obama had only been in office for two weeks before the February 1 Nobel nomination deadline. The Nobel Committee doesn’t seem to think it’s a problem. They attribute a change in global mood to Obama’s calls for peace and cooperation, even though his initiatives have not yet had the time “to bear fruit.” So what do you think? Does he deserve the award? [MSNBC]
After the jump, see how Obama stacks up to the other presidents that have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Keep reading »
What’s the best way to get press coverage before an election? A scandal, of course! Take, for example, East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer, who has been blowing up since photos of him in drag surfaced on the web. What a coincidence that it’s just days before his primary election! While Brewer won’t confirm that the photos are actually of him (umm … they look exactly like him), he kind of gives himself away saying, “You need a sex scandal to get to the next level.” Maybe he’ll be running on the ticket as Erica Brewer?

In 2007, Beyoncéwas forced to cancel a concert in Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim country, because the fundamentalist Pan Malaysian Islamic Party is “against western entertainment that promotes hedonism.” Now that she’s scheduled to play there on October 25, uber-religious folks are up in arms again and working hard to get her banned. See, in Malaysia, performers are supposed to wear very P.C. clothes and cover themselves from chest to knees. They aren’t allowed to jump, shout, hug or kiss onstage. In other words, fun is not to be had. [AP via Yahoo]
Beyoncé isn’t the only performer who’s drawn the ire of religious countries. Here are five other stars who’ve been banned from countries or came close to it. Keep reading »
Chris Andersen’s biography of the Obamas, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, comes out today, and in it he dishes on a lot more than the first couple’s date night. According to Andersen, women are constantly rubbing up against Barack, slipping him their digits, and whispering suggestive comments in his ear. “On more than one occasion, Barack tried not to look startled when some random woman in the crowd would grasp him firmly by the derriere — and sometimes try to hold on,” writes Andersen. After one rally on the campaign trail, Barack supposedly said, “Jesus, I wish they’d stop grabbing my ass.” Keep reading »
A new book says Michelle Obama advised Barack Obama to use “Yes, we can!” as a campaign slogan, even though the president apparently hated his chief advisor David Alexrod’s catchphrase. According to Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, by Christopher Anderson, the president dissed the now-famous slogan, calling it “childish” and “corny,” and insisted, “I don’t like it.” Barack then ordered his staff to think up a better slogan, but Michelle assured her hubby, “It will work. Trust me.” Smart lady! Anderson also says that Michelle put the kibosh picking on Hillary Clinton as a vice presidential candidate and urged her husband to pick Joe Biden as a running mate instead. “Do you really want Bill and Hillary just down the hall from you in the White House? Could you live with that?”, she allegedly told Barack. (Guess he couldn’t.) We always knew Michelle was one of the president’s greatest assets! [Times of London] Keep reading »
The Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry trade association, has named Hustler founder and publisher Larry Flynt as the recipient of its annual Legacy Award, to be presented at the 2009 FSC Awards in Los Angeles on November 14.
Hustler Magazine celebrated its 35th birthday this year in July with a special anniversary issue and a VIP birthday bash. Flynt might just be the best friend the First Amendment has ever had, and he’s certainly helped pave the way for much of modern adult entertainment as we now know it. Continue reading… Keep reading »
