8 Things We’ve Learned About Sarah Palin Post-Election

It’s been just over three weeks since Obama’s presidential win sent Sarah Palin back to Alaska, but that doesn’t mean the defeated VP hopeful has sunk back under the radar and into virtual anonymity. Far from it — Palin has been seen and heard more post-election than she ever was during the campaign, and frankly,…

Hillary Clinton The Bitch?

Hillary Clinton laid pretty low following her withdrawal from the Presidential campaign back in June, although her historic run was somewhat overshadowed in the last leg of the race by Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid. Now comes news that Clinton is a strong contender for secretary of state, replacing Condoleezza Rice. At the same time,…

Mind Of Man: How I Learned To Approximate Something Called Love

Hi, I’m single. Like, what’s up with that? Word. Can I buy you a vodka tonic, super fox?

Okay – let me interrupt for a second, and preempt our regularly scheduled programming to get some things off my hairy, muscular, barrel chest. I’m guessing you heard that the guy with the lizard neck lost…

The Protesting Of Proposition 8

The passing of Prop 8, which bans gay marriage in the State of California, has been causing a riot on The Frisky, but that’s nothing compared to what been going on in the streets and in the gay community. Borrowing chants from the Civil Rights movement, homosexuals have rallied together this week to fight for…

Poll: Did You Get Lucky On Election Night?

The Urban Dictionary word of the day for Nov. 5 was “Obama baby.” Definition: “A child conceived after Obama was proclaimed President by way of celebratory sex, or any baby born under Barack Obama’s term(s).” Yesterday’s was “election erection.” Participating in the electoral process this week really turned some people on! A quick glance at…

More Proof That The Obamas Are The Cutest Couple In All Of Cuteland

A friend sent me this video, of the President-Elect and the soon-to-be First Lady, doing a little happy dance together behind the scenes at one of his rallies, not knowing a camera was capturing the moment. At the end you can see Barack mouth in his Michelle’s ear, “I love you so much.”…

Marriage Under Attack!

One of the biggest defenses used by people who are not in favor of gay marriage — even from those who don’t oppose civil unions or other gay rights issues — is that marriage is an institution that’s founded on connecting mothers and fathers to their children. Writes Jennifer Roback Morse for the National Review,…

The Dress Debate: What People Are Saying About Michelle Obama’s Election Night Outfit

Yesterday, you guys had a lot to say about the Narciso Rodriguez dress Michelle Obama wore on election night. And you weren’t the only ones. Everyone is voicing their views on whether the dress made a good statement, or a horrible, ill-fitting one. Currently, a poll has 65 percent saying they hated Michelle’s fashio…

Catherine Strawn / November 6, 2008 First Black Man In Hologram

Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN…

On The Ballot Update: Anti-Choice Measures Shot Down, Prostitution Still Illegal

So, yesterday was a historic amazing day, with the first African-American winning the Presidency of the United States. It was also a bit of letdown, as it became clear that much of America still doesn’t like the idea of gay people getting married. But there was more good news! Three anti-choice measures failed! Amendment 48…

Levi Johnston, We Hardly Knew Ya

Oh Levi. Will we ever see your handsome face again now that YOUR road to the Whitehouse is over? Something tells us your 18-year-old patience will not keep you around long enough for a potential Palin Presidential run in 2012, which is why we’re thinking about what you’re doing RIGHT NOW. After the jump, some…

Why Does America Still Hate The Idea Of Gay People Getting Married?

Last night was absolutely historical and I’m not going to hide my glee. Americans came out in record numbers and voted for a significant change in the White House and in Washington, with quite a few states (Ohio and Florida among them) going blue over their traditional red. As Barack Obama said last night, “That…

The Daily Squeeze: Michelle Obama’s Election Day Dress, The Lob, And Target’s New Designer

The dress Michelle Obama wore last night was from Narciso Rodriguez’s Spring 2009 collection (see look #39). Personally, I think Michelle should have braved the cold and gone sans cardigan — it sort of ruined the dress’s lines — but she still looked lovely! [WSJ]
The eighth annual World Toilet Summit and Expo began yesterday…

How To Get That Embarrassing Bumper Sticker Off The Back of Your Car

So, let’s say your political candidate of choice lost last night…or years ago. If you’re driving a vintage Volvo that supports Mondale/Ferraro or you’re too distraught to cover up the McCain/Palin sticker on the back of your Durango with one that says MY OTHER CAR IS A ZAMBONI (I’m looking at you, hockey moms), here’…

Best of The Frisky: Election 2008

We’re pretty sure that you’re looking at your clock right now, impatiently waiting for the polls to close and the vote tallies to start coming in. But you still have a few more hours to kill, so why not fill that time by taking a look back at everything that happened leading up to today?

Follow Live Election Results On The Frisky

Today, I got up at five o’clock this morning to vote. At the polling place, I waited in line for two and a half hours. The line snaked down a hall, around a corner, back up the hall, and then all the way around again along the wall. Some people were voting for Obama, and…

Quick Pic: Who Are We Voting For Again?

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle cast their votes this morning in Chicago, Illinois. Of course, it’s a secret ballot, so we have no idea who they’d like to be president.

What’s So Sexy About Sarah Palin?

We’ve been trying to figure out why people (um, men) find Sarah Palin sexy, but not the other women involved in the presidential campaign. Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain and Jill Biden are all very attractive, stylish women but haven’t been branded with the “sexy-label” like Palin. We think all this business about Palin being sexy…

Who Are The Women Against Sarah Palin?

“Ms. Palin frightens me both for my country and for my grandchildren.” — Jane B., 73

In late August, Lyra Kilston, 31, and Quinn Latimer, 30, two not-very-political editors for Modern Painters magazine, found themselves suddenly immersed in the Presidential campaign. Enraged over the selection of Governor Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential…
