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]

Okay, you’ve heard about how Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s name has also been associated with ”the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex,” right? (Thank you, Dan Savage). So why, why, why would supposed Rick Santorum supporters create an ad in which mud — suspiciously resembling the aforementioned excrement — is shot at the candidate by a faux-looking Mitt Romney? I mean, the picture on the Spreading Santorum site exactly resembles the mud spatterings portrayed in the ad. Unreal. [Huffington Post]

Newt Gingrich Plays “Gotcha!” With An Old Lady

We can’t pretend to know what’s happening here in this photo taken at a Newt Gingrich campaign stop in South Carolina. But … we can imagine. He’s playing “Got your nose”? He’s performing much-needed emergency triage on a bloody beak? He’s trying out his correspondence course magic tricks? What’s your guess?

Valentino’s Spring Campaign, All Ladylike and Such

Bette Franke, Maud Welzen, Fei Fei Sun, and Zuzanna Bijoch star in this gorgeous ad for Valentino’s Spring 2012 collection, as shot by fine art photographer Deborah Turbeville. These dresses — and the look of the shoot — remind me of Gustav Klimt’s reform dresses, mixed with classic buttoned-up Victorian elegance. Which is to say I want to wear all of them.

Maria Sharapova Unleashes Her Inner Water Baby

In order to keep the momentum going from their roller baby video, Evian selected six individuals, including Maria Sharapova, to pose in T-shirts with baby bodies emblazoned on the front. To be honest, I’m a little creeped out by this image of the tennis star. She’s wearing a baby body as a T-shirt! How is that not weird? And who thought this was a good idea? While the shirt is totally odd, and surely not an item most people would ever wear, Evian’s motivation is something I can get behind. According to the H2O brand, youth is a mindset and lifestyle, so their Live Young campaign embraces the inner child in everyone. I’m a huge fan of water and the idea of staying young, but I just wish Evian took a second to realize no one wants to walk around with a huge picture of a baby’s body on their shirt.
