I grew up in a house with a Democrat mom and a “Republican” dad. I put Republican in quotes because technically my dad wasn’t registered as anything — he did that to avoid jury duty or something — but he did like to argue with my mom and me about our progressive politics. And he definitely didn’t have strong enough convictions to ever publicly display a yard sign in support of his candidate. Not so for this equally divided house, where the husband’s public support of Mitt Romney prompted his wife to put up a conflicting sign. Ah, the struggles of the bipartisan household! [NYMag.com]

Start hoarding canned goods!

Joss Whedon is probably best known for creating “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “The Avengers.” He’s also an ardent supporter of the zombie apocalypse, whether it be the fast moving zombies of “28 Days Later” or the slow, stubborn zombies of “Night Of The Living Dead.” Either way, Joss wants more zombies. And that’s why he supports Mitt Romney for president. Joss believes Romney will bring on the zombpocalypse faster than President Obama. What’s your take? Which candidate is more likely to bring on the zombies? [Buzzfeed]

"When we survive sexual assault, we are the gift."

Watching Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC on weekend mornings has become a ritual for me, as the journalist offers some of the most insightful and interesting commentary on current events in mainstream media. Saturday’s show was no exception, but it was an especially memorable one, as Harris-Perry, herself a sexual assault survivor, delivered this open letter to Richard Mourdock. Mourdock is the U.S. Senate candidate from Indiana who said during a debate last week, that he is against abortion even in cases of rape and incest, because those pregnancies are a “gift from God” that happened as God “intended.” Harris-Perry’s letter is powerful and I urge you all to watch the video above. The full transcript of her letter is also after the jump. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Wendy Williams and Rachel Maddow
These Two Are Cute Together

Rachel Maddow and Wendy Williams are strange bedfellows indeed: Rachel is the host of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” and smarter than 99.9 percent of America, while Wendy Williams is the host of “The Wendy Williams Show” and the last time I watched it she was reenacting “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” wig-snatch. So no one is as surprised as me that these two are really cute together. After gabbing about how slimy Donald Trump is, the two got down ‘n’ dirty talking about pop culture and politics. The fact that Rachel Maddow knows the exact ingredients found in sketti makes me love her even more.

Michelle Obama Jimmy Kimmel
She Reveals Her Disguise!

Being the First Lady can’t be that bad of a gig: you have a personal chef, travel all over the world, and Beyoncé loves you. But as Michelle Obama explained last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the complete lack of privacy and anonymity warps your life … so much so that you actually start wanting to go to CVS and wait in line for three-quarters of an hour while the one employee rings everyone up.

Mrs. Obama, I go to CVS several times a month for toiletries and prescriptions. Do not even get me started on the CVS pharmacy. You are MORE than welcome to take my place in that badly managed hellhole. When can you start?!?!

Lena's First Time

“Girls” creator Lena Dunham has come out as a supporter of President Obama by recording this campaign video, in which she talks about her first time … voting, that is. “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody,” she says. “It should be with a great guy.” Dunham goes on to say that voters should cast their ballot for someone that “cares about whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control.” The saucy ad is naturally inspiring some conservative ire, with some calling it “disgusting” and questioning its “appropriateness.” Keep reading »
