Election 2008: This Is What Women Want

What do women want? It’s an age-old question that makes men, like our presidential candidates, rack their brains. But how can all the bitches we know give them some answers? Let’s face it, we each have our own opinions. And the thing is, while I can easily tell my gal pal her new hand painted purple clogs make her look like Barney, how can I get to tell these big powerful candidates, with their team of security guards, that I want to keep my reproductive rights? (And please, if I ever got near Barack Obama, I’d giggle like a schoolgirl.) This Is What Women Want, a new grassroots website, is providing an open forum for women to post their political beliefs on everything from immigration to education. Also, with one click, you can instantly chime in and vote on other ladies’ posts through a rating system. I just gave “rape victims’ rights” five stars! So hey, I opened my big mouth, now it’s your turn. [Our Bodies, Our Blog] Keep reading »

Obama And McCain Are Dolls

Get your hot little hands on these new presidential candidate paper dolls, and you’ll be the envy of all your registered-voter friends. You know how most paper dolls start off in their undies? We’re wondering whether McCain and Obama are depicted wearing boxers or briefs in their doll version.

Each book costs $7.99 and features 32 pages of paper dolls and outfits printed in the U.S. on recycled paper. The Obama Paper Dolls book features Barack, Michelle, and their two daughters, along with various changes of clothes actually worn by the couple on the campaign trail. The McCain Paper Dolls book includes doll versions of John and Cindy with an assortment of outfits, including Cindy’s wedding dress, but doesn’t include John’s kids Meghan, Bridget, Doug, Jack, Jimmy, and Andy — maybe because his offspring are older, or because some are from earlier marriages or adopted, or because none of them is as cute as Malia and Natasha?

Tyra Does Michelle Obama, Plus Her 6 Craziest Stunts

Last night I was on “Showbiz Tonight” discussing Tyra Banks’ Bazaar cover, and the photo shoot within the magazine in which she dresses up as Michelle Obama. The shoot is not a fashion spread — i.e. there’s no “10 Looks Michelle Obama Will Need As A First Lady, As Worn By Model Tyra Banks” — and the interview accompanying the images isn’t really serious in nature, though Tyra does say that her Secret Service code-name would be “Kiss My Fat Ass”. Rather, it seems like Bazaar is trying to cash in on the Obama craze in any way they can, since they apparently couldn’t get the real woman to do a shoot with them. (By the way, I predict Michelle will be in Vogue, instead!) As for Tyra? Well, this is hardly the first cuh-razy stunt the talk show host has pulled. After all, Ty-Ty seems to feel like the world is The Tyra Show, and we’re all just lucky to get out alive. After the jump, six other classically nutty and self-absorbed “All About Tyra” moments.

Paris For President: Hilton On McCain, Obama, & Her Own Energy Policy

We hate to say it, but Paris Hilton just cracked us up. The heiress responded to John McCain’s recent Barack Obama attack ad — which compared the Democrat’s popularity to that of celebrities like Hilton and Britney Spears — with the help of the hilarious crew at Funny Or Die. We know she can’t take credit for the genius writing, but her delivery is pretty spot-on. Nicely done, bitch! Keep reading »

UsWeekly.com Doesn’t Know Squat About Brangelina

That’s because the magazine Us Weekly lives at UsMagazine.com on the web. But guess what occupies UsWeekly.com? A site in support of John McCain for President, which seems to spend all of its space bashing McCain’s opponent, Senator Barack Obama. Some choice diatribes: “Barack Obama’s ‘fight the smears’ campaign is the same strategy Fidel Castro used to convince Cubans to elect him”, “In Indonesia the Barack Obama autobiography titled ‘The Audacity of Hope’ is titled ‘Assault Hope: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse’”, and “Barack Obama warned supporters (behind closed doors of course) that the GOP will use his race to ‘scare’ white voters.” Keep reading »

    Obama’s iPod

    Your musical tastes say a lot about you, blah, blah, blah, so it’s kind of a big deal that in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Barack Obama divulges some of what’s on his iTunes. Obama says he has “pretty eclectic tastes,” and his playlist includes the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Bruce Springsteen. He thinks hip-hop stars like Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, and Ludacris are “great talents and great businessman,” but wishes his daughters could listen to their music without having to worry “that they were getting bad images of themselves.” I poked around the internet to see whether John McCain has a playlist making the rounds, but all I could find were these from his daughter, Meghan.
