Is Sarah Palin Moving To Arizona?

Gird your loins, Arizona: Sarah Palin might be moving in! The Atlantic Wire reports the former governor of Alaska allegedly bought an 8,000-square foot, $1.6 million home in a secluded area of Scottsdale, Arizona. The identity of the buyer is hidden on the property records, but the lawyer for the sale suspiciously replied “No comment!” when asked if the buyer was Palin. The fancy pad features six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a swimming pool and spa, a six-car garage, a wine cellar, and a guard gate. Damn! Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Says She Has “That Fire In My Belly.” Will She Or Won’t She Run For President in 2012?

Last night, Sarah Palin talked to Greta van Susteren over at Fox News about whether she would be throwing her hat in the ring for president in 2012. “It’s a matter for me of some kind of practical, pragmatic decisions that have to be made,” Sarah explained. “One is, with a large family understanding the huge amount of scrutiny and the sacrifices that have to be made on my children’s part in order to see their mama run for president. But yeah, the fire in the belly—it’s there.” [Politico]

I’m tempted to make the obvious joke: “No Sarah, that’s just indigestion.” But instead, after the jump, I’d like to take a look back at Sarah’s thoroughly confusing quotes about this issue over the past year. Let’s just say that she’s hinted and then recanted before. Keep reading »

Patti Davis, Ronald Reagan’s Daughter, Poses Nude For More Magazine

The words “Ronald Reagan” and “nude” in the headline scared you, didn’t it? Relax: it’s just his daughter Patti Davis posing nude again. Yes, again. Patti posed naked for Playboy in 1994 at age 42, she says, to celebrate kicking drugs and getting her body into shape. Now the First Daughter is posing nude at age 58 in the June issue of More, a magazine aimed at over-40 ladies, to prove her body is still as rock solid as her dad’s belief in trickle-down economics. While I generally think it’s cheesy when political hangers-on bare all (here’s lookin’ at you, Levi Johnston and sister), Patti Davis genuinely seems proud of her body’s accomplishments.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Resigns From IMF & May Be Replaced By A Woman, Christine Lagarde

After being accused of sexually assaulting a hotel maid in New York City this weekend, Dominique Strass-Kahn, the chief of the International Monetary Fund, resigned from his position on Wednesday. Strauss-Kahn was charged with attempted rape, forcible touching, sexual abuse, and unlawful imprisonment, among other charges. He was denied the $1 million bail posted by his wife on Monday and is currently imprisoned at NYC’s Rikers Island. The formal letter of resignation he submitted last night denied all the charges against him:

“To all, I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible firmness all of the allegations that have been made against me. I want to protect this institution which I have served with honor and devotion, and especially—especially—I want to devote all my strength, all my time, and all my energy to proving my innocence.

According to The New York Times, the frontrunner to replace Strauss-Kahn at the IMF is a woman: Christine Lagarde, the French finance minister. If Lagarde were to be appointed, she would be the first-ever woman to hold the top position. Keep reading »

The Reason Arnold Schwarzenegger And Maria Shriver Split? He Had A Baby With Another Woman.

We knew there had to be something that wasn’t being said when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced last week that they were splitting after 25 years of marriage. Now, the Los Angeles Times brings us the truth—Arnold recently told Maria that he had an affair years ago with a member of their household staff. And, uh, that he fathered a baby with her. Presumably a baby Maria knew well since this was a longtime staff member. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Arnold explained. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.” Keep reading »
